Finding a job might be one of the most stressful experiences any human goes through. Interviews can be nerve-racking, and waiting for that second call is even worse. However, have you ever stopped and wondered if you are even waiting to get a call from a job you want? One that is actually good for you?

In today’s episode, I welcome Nakisha Hicks, a veteran HR executive who partners with women to guide them in their careers. From tactical strategies to mindset hacks, Nakisha shares a few tips to empower you to land a role in a reciprocal job search experience (because YOU are the prize!).  She provides insights to help you present yourself in the best way possible, while also assessing if the employer is a good fit for you.

Nakisha also shares a bit of her own experience and how she was able to network, focus on herself, and, most importantly, elevate herself.
