Primary reason that somebody will not hire you is that they don't trust you. They will sooner hire you because they don't like the work than if they don't like you. Often people do not even hire for skill. They hire for personality. Sometimes you wonder how the hell did that person get hired? Right? But they're awfully nice. (laghing) But, getting back to the real nuts and bolts of this, the primary reason that somebody will not hire you is because there's something about your work or what you're saying that doesn't resonate with them. And it might not be something that they can identify as trust. I don't know that they would think about it that deeply. They just have vibe that they... This is not the right fit. And we've heard that. Just not the right fit. And what that means is something that you said or something that you showed didn't necessarily resonate with them. And so when you're in an interview environment, it's absolutely imperative. It's critical that you establish trust. T...
hat you establish that what you're saying is what you mean, that what you mean is what you deliver. And you make it very clear that you have very specific attributes and benefits that you and only you will be able to deliver for the employer to get a return on their investment of paying you to do this work. We think a lot and talk a lot and complain a lot about job satisfaction. As if it is something that the employer is supposed to bequeath upon you. You know a hundred years ago, people didn't think about whether they were happy and fulfilled at work. They were just happy to have jobs that paid them to go home and take care of their families. So establishing trust and credibility in an interview takes a whole series of steps that allow you to be empowered so that you can trust yourself in the interview. And that empowerment will allow you to be able to show up as your best self with the knowledge that you are thoroughly ready for this interview.

I was not expecting to get so much out of this accelerated class! Debbie is a captivating speaker who manages to get her points across directly while maintaining a strong sense of relatability with her audience. I really look forward to taking what I have learned here with me as I move forward in my career as a visual artist. Highly recommended.
This class is for a specific audience - young or new-to-the-field designers. It is NOT a branding class for the regular person. The class description is misleading. However, there are bits and tips that anyone can benefit from, but you have to sit through the entire presentation to get those bits and tips. I am not a designer. Because I had the all-access pass, I dipped in and out of different classes, speeding up and skipping as needed. I found enough value in this Fast Class: A Brand Called You to watch it, rather than the long one. I can see how this would benefit new designers as they job hunt.
