Yes, it's true!! I've been working since June 6 as a consultant. I can't say any one person, any one advocate, or any one piece of advice or training helped me land, but just creating the mind set of ME, Inc. is enough to persevere.
The only pearl of wisdom I can offer is, know what your strengths are and what you want to do with them, and never give up. I'd be happy to talk with anyone who needs a gentle push (or maybe not so gentle). Follow the seven steps, and stay positive!!!
