Pantelis’s Question or Topic
Pantelis is a university student studying computer engineering in Greece. He had a rough start in college, but after a personal journey, Pantelis found his base and executed to graduate. Pantelis is 26 years old and feels that he’s behind in that particular department. So he reached out to Gary on how to boost his resume and convince other people that he has a lot to offer.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Gary advises Pantelis that it should be less about boosting his resume and more about asking a ton of people. Gary sees a lot of people who feel insecure about their resumes, whether they’re behind or didn’t go to the best school, and he always laughs. Because Gary always says to them that they don’t understand. To Gary, Pantelis has more than a good enough resume for one to 500 businesses in the world right now. It’s just that he needs to submit his resume, and he has to reach out to them to apply.
So many people are in their heads, worrying and dwelling that they’re behind. They should instead be on LinkedIn and reaching out to CEOs and CMOs (Chief Marketing Officer), CIOs (Chief Information Officer), and CTOs (Chief Technology Officer), sending in the resume and saying, “I have the most passion. Read this resume.” Gary believes in quantity but with emphasis that there must be an upfront context in the first two or three sentences to get them to be excited about you.
On the side hustle:
Flipping (Garage selling) is harder in Europe than it is in the US because of the difference in websites, the culture, and other factors. Gary sees some people in Europe doing very well in flipping by starting an Instagram account and posting items there.
