In her book Get the Job Done, Beverly says to think of your employment journey as a film production, where each phase will require you to project an image that translates into success.
In today’s episode, Beverly talks with film producer Vincent Tabone, managing director and co-owner of VJT Productions, LLC. Vin says if you find yourself unemployed to find a job you can make money at and follow your dream while working.
In 2011, Vin found himself laid off from his job of 15 years. He explains how:
- At age of 50, his resume was not readily accepted
- He brainstormed something not currently in the marketplace that there was a demand for (art and art education on public television)
- Learning by doing and researching are great techniques to advance your career
- He brought in others who had the expertise he didn’t have at the time
- He was able to excel by enlisting the help of experts and growing his knowledge over time
Now a documented film producer, Vin says if you find yourself unemployed to find a job you can make money at and follow your dream while working. Through sticking it out at my first job, Vin was able to make connections that led to his dream job.
