EPISODE 248 Does age matter when you’re starting a new business?  The media sells the message that you are more likely to be successful if you are under 30, but research is on your side if you are over 40! Also, Dr. Bray coaches you through cover letter etiquette that could land you that new job.

 

QUESTION OF THE DAY
“Am I too old to become to become an entrepreneur?“ -Sylvia, New York City

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
Looking for a new job?

Don’t put these comments on your cover letter:

  1. “I’m confident I’m the perfect person for the job.”  Too much confidence can turn off the employer. Tailor your letter to that specific job.
  2. “I need this job because…” Everyone knows why you need a job. Tell them how you can help them in that role instead.
  3. “I’m requesting a salary of _____.” Don’t even mention it in your first interview. Wait for them to bring it up early on.
  4. “I think…” No one cares what you think.
  5. “I would be a good fit.” You wouldn’t apply if you weren’t. Highlight past examples that show it.
  6. “To Whom it May Concern,” Find out a name!
  7. “Good.” It’s a mediocre word. Give a more descriptive impression.

 

QUOTES BY CHRIS
