Sadly, it can be so difficult to get into the industry, some people will work for anyone. And I certainly advocate working for just about anyone. But I’d completely understand anyone who decided to pass on a job with these guys. Pond scum.

And it’s not that talent doesn’t count at all, it does. But talent certainly isn’t everything. For better AND for worse, the sooner job hunters understand this, the better off they’ll be.

Hard work and tenacity pay off because they help you stand out from the pack whether you’re a newbie or a pro. As a manager, I can teach specific skills, but I can’t teach attitude. You either have the right attitude or you don’t – and it doesn’t take long for it to show.

Of my former students who pursued a career in media and PR, it’s not necessarily the best and the brightest who have made the greatest headway up the career ladder, but those who were determined to succeed and worked their butts off to make sure they did. They simply carried this attitude with them into the workplace.

Comment on Becoming a growth hacker: what you need to know by Andrew Coxhttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2015/04/becoming-a-growth-hacker-what-you-need-to-know/#comment-1881271 Mon, 13 Apr 2015 03:13:13 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=8039#comment-1881271 Hi Steven,

Totally agree with you that appropriate context is vital. The role of a growth hacker will vary significantly depending on the business situation and the team they are working with. To be effective, a growth hacker must engage with others in the company when developing, prioritising, testing and cutting ideas for growth.

cheers,

Andrew

Comment on Becoming a growth hacker: what you need to know by Steven McConnellhttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2015/04/becoming-a-growth-hacker-what-you-need-to-know/#comment-1881219 Mon, 13 Apr 2015 00:36:27 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=8039#comment-1881219 “The growth hacker is not a generalist. They focus on one outcome – growth.”

It’s important to note that single-minded focus on growth is useless – even dangerous – without an appropriate context. If a company is to employ a “growth hacker”, this person’s actions must be tempered by someone who has the ability to look beyond the numbers.
