Approaching a Potential Employer Cold – How to Cold Call for Executive Jobs

If you read my blog or E-zine you know I am ALL about taking both leadership and control of your executive job search—and that includes not just investing in a professionally certified executive resume writer but fully leveraging market opportunities as well. It takes a little planning, initiative, and guts—but the payback is amazing, and you get to pick your low-hanging fruit in terms of the companies YOU are interested in working for.

For money, she cashed out the funds her parents had saved for tuition. Now, she counts billionaire Larry Ellison as an investor and has former secretaries of state on her board.

Bill Gates is another famous dropout. So is Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, who dropped out of Harvard in his sophomore year to complete his project. Steve Jobs dropped out of college after six months. The list goes on an on. The question we have to ask – why does formal education turn-off the most creative people? Answer – they are non-conformists.
