Adam Posner On: The Secret to Connecting Powerful Relationships EP 97

January 11, 2022

Adam Posner is the Founder and  President at NHP Talent Group and the host of the top career podcast, ThePOZcast- showcasing experts to help you harness your inner tenacity to drive your life and career forward. In today's episode, Adam speaks to John R. Miles about the secret to connecting powerful relationships.

The two discuss why Adam left the corporate world to pursue recruiting. We go into the most significant advice that he ever received from Gary Vee when he worked for Gary at Vayner Media. The lesson he learned and applying that advice to building the second chapter of his life and becoming a master connector of people and companies. We go into many topics on career advice and today's trends. The dos and don'ts for things like cover letters and your resume writing. How you should approach a recruiter whom you have never met. How do you properly use LinkedIn to best showcase your personal brand? What is the best way to create a profile on LinkedIn? And then, we end the episode by talking about our advice on podcasting.
