What does Derek Jeter, the multi-millionaire athlete have to do with us regular-types? Quite a bit actually. This is a once in a generation athlete, one who transcends the sport he plays, and sports in general like no other. The things he does on the baseball diamond, the things he does off the field, and especially the things he doesn’t do off of the field have endeared him to millions not just as a baseball icon, but as a leader. But he also represents the majority of us: not in possession of the most talent or the highest level of any one particular skill, rather this is a man worked his butt off to get where he his, doing a job well, and maintaining that level of success in his chosen field. Anyone looking to become more successful in any profession can learn a few things from Derek Jeter and would be wise to emulate these traits:
Summer means beaches, barbecues, vacations, and for many graduation, either from high school or from college. The next step (yes, some high school grads don’t go to college) is finding a job. The question is, where do you begin? For college graduates, the process probably has already stated with the headhunters who paid visits to the campus during the year. Not all schools receive such visits, however, and not all students get headhunted either. And, when it comes to high school graduates, there aren’t very many who get targeted for jobs at all. So the question still remains open. You need to cover all of your bases, not just prettying up your resume, to ensure that you get a job interview that leads to a promising career.
