No B.S. Coaching Advice

Don’t Make The Career Mistake I Did | Career Angles

I am on the last few holes of my career and want to encourage you to NOT make one of the mistakes I did professionally.


I’m Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter,. I’m a coach who helps people
professionally in many different ways and i want to talk with you in terms of
career and offer advice from the mistake I made
in my two careers and just start by saying
when I was young, I was in environments where I worked collaboratively with
others. It was fun. We had a common purpose
and I’m reminded of this because I got together with a number of the
at that time teenagers, I spent time with when I was young in New York and we
reminisced. It reminded me of playing sports and how we played together and
competed with one another, and collectively, we became better by
working collaboratively.
Professionally I’ve wound up in careers where I’ve been a solo person.
i worked in recruiting for more than 40 years in environments
where I was measured, not the group,. I was measured by individual performance.
Sounds good up until the point I control my own destiny
but it’s not a lot of fun when you’re working by yourself.
And now as a coach one of the things I’m doing is looking for opportunities to
cooperate with one another, to meet other people,
to share with other people, so that I have more of the contact
and more fun professionally. Fun. Money. They go hand in hand
and having teams around you to support what you do
becomes very important. If your environment doesn’t feel like a team
well, you’re missing something there and. I would encourage you to consider
exploring what it’s like. Maybe, you practice in in volunteer roles
but you find a place where you have the feeling of
team again with everyone moving toward a common purpose,
working together toward a goal and not make the mistake, I did professionally
of being a solo person siloed in so many different ways
i enjoy my work when I’m interviewing people from my podcast and youtube
channel. I like working with other coaches
it’s more fun we learn from one another we play together
and we get better results. Try it for yourself if you’re in a solo situation
see what you find. I do hope you find this helpful.
My website is
i also have another one, That’s a big one that
includes thousands of posts about job search plus
everything you’d find at Go to either site,
go exploring. Depending upon what you’re looking for
No BS is a lot faster because it doesn’t have all those thousands of job search
posts slowing it down. But go to either site, go
exploring. There’s a lot there to help you.
