Last week I had the pleasure and opportunity to interview Ira Bowman on Twitter and put him in my #InTheSpotlight with the #Digital360Chat career internet.
A couple things about Ira…he sells printers in the SF Bay Area, & founded #ProjectHelpYouGrow which helps employers connect to job seekers for free!
Ira LOVES to help people and a great example of that is his #projecthelpyougrow which has just shy of 5,000 job seekers and 125 employers who regularly use the site. The job seekers build profiles, the employers post job openings. Everything is free and Ira “donates” his time in helping connect those looking. I’m not really sure when he sleeps.
Ira’s advice for those just getting started…
“Find a mentor. Pick their brain. Don’t reinvent the wheel as it’s a waste of time. In my world, there are many who have been in the business for decades. We love to help younger fresh talent learn the history.“
“Never stop learning. Read a book, check what’s trending, speak to people in your industry. Basically try and soak up as much knowledge as you can. Knowledge is power became an expression for a reason.”
