Brothers and Sisters in Arms,

Mike Sarrialle coming for CareerRecon back again. Hey I’ve got a recommended reading tip for you.

This is completely optional disclaimer – I don’t get any money or proceeds from this book whatsoever. It was written by two of my former seal teammates Jocko Willink and Leif Babin and that book is called “Extreme Ownership.” Now the beauty of this book is it actually helps you prepare for the interview, to tell a story.

The way they wrote the book was they tell a war story, a combat story. The underlying principle behind that story.  And then they translate it in your business setting, which is the exact thing that you’re going to have to do in the interview. 

You’re gonna get a question about how have you ever led a team in that adverse or ambiguous environment. And yes, you actually have.  You can talk about how you were a sergeant in the Marine Corps infantry, and you’re in charge of a 12 man squad and explain whatever you did as the leader of that organization. And that’s how you’re going to translate your value to the company.

Alright guys, again, thanks for following through return. We look forward to working with each of you take ownership over your transition and guys before you know it, you’ll find your next opportunity.
