Christmas Audio Edition
How can I distinguish myself?


Last week's edition, 'Tis the Season to be Truly Right, rang a holiday bell. And it makes me want to ask you: How can I distinguish myself when I approach a company, and in the job interview?

Nick's Reply
You can be a distinctive candidate if you have a distinctive attitude about your work, and if you can demonstrate distinctive job-hunting behavior. And that's what I want to talk about -- being distinctive. But this week we're going to try something new. Please click the links below to hear, rather than read, this week's column. I hope you enjoy this bonus audio edition of Ask The Headhunter. These recordings were made before a live audience in New Jersey in December 2004. They're still pretty fresh...!

In light of the holidays, the newsletter (and I) will take a break for the next two weeks. There will be no issues for December 28 or January 4. Publication will resume in the New Year with the January 11, 2005 edition.

Here's wishing us all a very Merry Christmas -- or whatever you celebrate during this season -- and a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year! Remember to share whatever grace you've been given with someone who needs it more.
