About this episode:
The world is changing rapidly.
Teams are becoming distributed, working-from-home in professional industries is more common, employers need more flexible business models. All the change can be overwhelming, especially for people looking to change careers or start one. One of the most important things is getting hands-on experience in a job.
But with the work-from-home movement and change underway in many industries, there are challenges with this.
In this episode of The Australian Finance Podcast, Kate chats with Tom Brunskill, the CEO of Forage, about exactly how possible it is for you to stand out from the crowd in today’s job market, with little more than an investment of your time and effort.
I think the simple test you can use if you truly want to work in a particular company in a particular industry, is by thinking about how can you deliver value to the place you want to work before you even formally apply to that organisation?Tom Brunskill
