What does it have to do with job search? Well, this isn’t actually a post about what to wear…Mainly, it’s inspired by watching the Golden Globes. I’ve only seen some of it so far (I missed the opening), but it seems to me that no one on the stage seems to know where they are going! Did you notice?

What’s the lesson for the job seeker or small business owner from tonight’s show so far (at 8:56 pm ET)? Plan. Prepare. Practice. Ask questions if you need to…Don’t be the job seeker or business owner who doesn’t know which direction to go, which exit to take or what to say next.
