164. How to be an outsider and job-hunt successfully: An interview with Joe Mullings, Chairman and CEO of The Mullings GroupDec 12, 2022
Joe Mullings was the perfect guest to discuss how to win as an outsider when applying for jobs and planning your career. We discussed how professionals can transition into MedTech, health sciences, and startups. We also discussed the growing trend of interim work and how professionals can safely transition to gig work, with Joe providing several excellent examples that I am sure will clarify the importance of keeping this alternative way of working in the pipeline, especially as we reach our 50s and 60s. And we finished our chat discussing the importance of LinkedIn for career progression, and Joe shared his interesting 3-prone strategy on how to use LinkedIn to improve reputation and reach. In his words, "think of LinkedIn as a learning platform, not a job or career platform."
