you’re three weeks from being better than the competition.
How do you pursue a career in an industry that’s still a bit mystifying?
How do you break into the wedding business when there’s no clear path? Do you need an “in?” Is there some un-written code you should be in on? Worse, are you turning people off with your approach?
I don’t want to alarm you, but there’s a strong possibility the answer is, yes.
But don’t worry! It’s not your fault. You’re doing what the career center told you, right? You’re using what conventional job searching wisdom taught you. Here’s the rub, the wedding business is not the typical job climate and how you would interview for a 9-5 office job does not translate to the wedding world.
Here’s the good news, 3-weeks will change everything you thought you knew about job hunting in the wedding industry.
I invite you to be better and hunt wisely.
