5 TED Talks to help you find the right job
- last updated 23 Jun 2016
We’d love to tell you that finding a job in digital that’s perfectly suited to your skill set, work ethic and personality is a piece of cake, but we know that’s not always the case. Nothing worth having ever came easy, right?
With so many factors at play, it’s easy to feel deflated and unmotivated about putting yourself out there. But are you sure you’re doing enough to be considered? Are you leading with your best foot forward? Should you apply in a different way? Are you actually looking at the right roles?
Here’s a selection of 5 amazing TED Talks to motivate and inspire you, get you back on track and help you move a step closer towards your dream job.
This empowering talk shows us the power of going the extra mile. We’re sure you’ve seen viral examples on your LinkedIn newsfeed of people showing their grit and persistence in finding work. Regina Hartley calls these people ‘Scrappers’.
In this talk, she tells us why this is a pretty savvy approach.
Do you make excuses for not pursuing your passion? Then this talk is for you. Larry Smith gives us all a blunt (yet funny) reminder not to hold ourselves back.
In this talk, Susan Colantuono speaks to those who are doing everything right at work, but not moving up the ranks. She gives us one simple piece of advice that could really change everything.
Something a little bit different. In this eye-opening talk, Emilie Wapnick tells us why it’s okay to not want to do one thing for the rest of your life. This is a must watch if you struggle to stick at one thing.
Does money motivate us to work harder? That’s naturally going to be part of it. But what really keeps us going? Dan Ariely tells us why most of us have this completely wrong.
