This is a tough time to be looking for a job. Many of my career success coaching clients are having difficulty getting interviews let alone landing a job.

This takes work, but in this fellow’s case, the hard work paid off.
Good employees know they’re good. They may not be appreciated; they may not have everything they want; but, they know they are above average, and, more importantly, they are determined to be the best; that is why you want them.
