Stephanie Dennis is a recruiter and a host of two career podcasts - Unpacking and Career Talk . She knows about how to get noticed in a job search because she is responsible for finding the right candidates for a variety of different types of roles. You probably have heard you need to get the attention of a recruiter, but what does that mean -- and who are these mythical recruiters? Today I wanted to dispel the mystery behind a very important role of the recruiter, how to get noticed the right way, and how to reach out without annoying them. We also talk about how to stand apart in the job search,  how to take feedback, how to kick ass during the the first months of a job and how to show you’re ready for more responsibility at work. For more on Stephanie visit: https://anchor.fm/careertalk and https://anchor.fm/unpackingFor more on this podcast visit: www.Kickassin.lifeEmail me: kickassinyourlife@gmail.comTheme song by Qusic.  Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/kick-ass-in-life/message Become a supporter of this podcast:https://anchor.fm/kick-ass-in-life/support
