  • First job out of college, I felt like I was on the right path. I took this great job with a great company.

  • But in 2008, everything froze over, and I was let go.

  • I remember telling a friend, "I just feel like there's a fire in my chest, because I know that I have just a purpose in the world."

  • I must've applied for like 100 interviews in 10 months:

  • informational interviews, coffee breaks, networking meetings. I used LinkedIn like a mad person.

  • I finally got a call that was like, "Hey! We'd love to offer you a job." And I just about like fell off my chair.

  • They sat me down at my desk, and it had a phone with my name, and my extension, and "Marketing Coordinator".

  • And I just remember sitting there and feeling like, "I've made it!"

  • If I hadn't push so hard that year to find the job that lit me up inside, now I wouldn't have a marketing company of my very own.

  • From growing your network to building relationships that can help you get to where you want to be,

  • LinkedIn can help you create your own success story.
