DD 103 Salary Negotiation Tactics As a headhunter, I'm always negotiating from DAY ONE. Too many people forget that the clock starts ticking the moment you engage in the job search process. Make sure you're able to get ahead of the game by considering some of these negotiation tactics to embrace so you are leading the discussion from the front, not reactively!
DD 102 How to get headhunters to represent you If you're asking the question of how to get headhunters to notice you, it means that you don't have headhunters who are actively seeking you out as things stand. That could most likely be because the highest likelihood that they don't exist or could be disinterested in serving your type of background. In markets where you have lots of headhunter activity, headhunter requests are so bothersome candidates shut down.  Thus, what I'll teach you is how to get headhunters to notice you if they haven't already.
DD 101 Startups or Large Companies? Cash vs Equity? As you really start analyzing what you'd like to do for your career strategy, it's definitely worth a think to determine the pros and cons of joining either a startup or a large company, and how that may impact your ability to obtain short-term cash (wages) or long term renumeration (business ownership in the form of equity). Not all equity is created equal especially since there are some firms where that matters, others where that equity will never amount to anything. Thus, consider all the factors so you make the RIGHT decision for your future!
DD 100 How to recover from Failure Debt and Bankruptcy As usual, I won't sugarcoat my thoughts on people who get into businesses that fail or have put you at significant financial loss. There is a LOT of self-reflecting needed to break through and understand the causes of business failure. The only way to move forward is to learn from your mistakes and do things differently, not be defensive or offended by reality. Lastly, there is NOTHING shameful about bankruptcy. I talk about why it can be good for you here.
DD 99 How to become successful if you came from nothing As someone who grew up as the babysitter's daughter, I always knew my family's lack of knowledge and money when it comes to success in America was a handicap. I had to break free from my parents' and society's expectations of myself and re-learn the whole system of success on my own to find my salvation. Many people ask me for a path to success or a direct map. Please listen to this entire podcast to find your road.
DD 98 Top 4 of 10 Career Killers All of my mistakes in life stem from this Top 4 of 10 Career Killers: Caring too much about what others think. Literally, everything that has caused me grief and made me miserable was due to this factor. The moment I was able to free my mind and my own expectations from what others wanted from me, I was able to embark on a journey of self-fulfillment through wealth accumulation, thus achieving my true destiny of being an entrepreneur, public speaker, and headhunter.
DD 97 How to get an internship As a headhunter and successful past intern for many Fortune 500s since my highschool and college days, I walk you through EXACTLY what you need to do to get an internship today.  This process is EASIER than ever due to the internet and our abundance social media tools. It just requires the right approach and mindset. This may not going to be fun to listen to because I will highlight a few things wrong with the mainstream approach. Instead, I'll share the RIGHT way to ready yourself for your future career!
DD 96 Why do headhunters ask candidates to work exclusively? As a headhunter, I no doubt, like many others, prefer to work with my candidates (clients less so) exclusively. However, I will not stop my candidates from entertaining new opportunities or speaking with other people. In today's Daily DANDAN, I go through the reasons why: 1. Exclusivity (under the right circumstances) benefits everyone. 2. You're entitled to candidate rights and protection. 3. You still have power in the recruitment process. Enjoy!
