Austin Belcak Shares His Best Strategies For Landing Your Dream Job [Podcast Ep. #18]

Austin Belcak joins me on this episode of the podcast to discuss unconventional methods for landing your dream job. Austin and I both believe that the current system for finding and landing jobs is broken (both for hiring managers and those seeking jobs). There is a lot of noise and not enough signal. Early sidetracks (or missteps) in one’s career or education also can be seemingly insurmountable barriers to overcome when trying to level-up in a career or make a radical change in vocation. What can we do about it?

Austin was forced to think creatively when it came to landing his job at Microsoft. With a 2.5 GPA and a modest amount of work experience, he discovered a variety of methods and strategies for finding ways to add real value to employers and convince decision-makers to bet on him.

Listen to this episode where we cover:

  • How Austin landed a great job at Microsoft, without a stellar GPA or prior career experience.
  • What motivated Austin to start a side business while working full-time.
  • The most viciously misleading advice most job seekers blindly follow.
  • How to start a career in a new field, with no connections.
  • Why applying to jobs online is ineffective, and what to do about it.
  • …and much more!
