Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.

Welcome to the new Mighty Forces

“May you live in interesting times.”
-Ancient Chinese curse

We certainly live in interesting times, don’t we?

I decided to start Mighty Forces because I saw so many qualified, enthusiastic, talented people struggling to get a job. Even if you manage to find your way into the interview process, it can be a punishing affair that seems to drag on forever. It’s easy to get discouraged. I know the feeling all too well.

The truth is, job hunting is a game where most of the people you encounter don’t want you to learn the rules.

The good news is, you can do it.  It’s not easy or fun, but it can be rewarding, and even exhilarating at times. I’ll do my best to show you how to play the game; the rest is up to you. If you’re new here, you should probably start with “It’s not about you.”

I’m not a professional job counselor, and I don’t play one on TV, either. (More details on the About page.) But I think we can have a conversation that will take you a little further down the road you want to be on.

Just to get that conversation started: what has been your biggest challenge in your job search? Let me know in the comments. Thanks!

  1. This is fantastic Adam. As a former Employment Advisor for a non-profit in Boston (the 100-year-old Women’s Educational and Industrial Union that helped Amelia Earhart find a Social Work position long before her piloting days), I totally agree with what you’re saying. And then to add in your wonderful writing style to your sound advice. It’s a valuable combination. Where can we send our resumes?
