Manage episode 303757065 series 2951712
Today on the show we’re talking with the host at the ‘Who Ya Know’ Job Networking Show, and a financial services professional with NY Life Securities, out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Trevor’s networking strategies & outside-the-box approach drive proven results. Featured in Forbes for his Job Search Trojan Horse Strategy; Trevor helps job seekers to get noticed, create opportunities & take control of the financial impact of job loss. His mission is to build a community of leaders & empower job seekers to find their passion.
Trevor and Stephynie discuss how Trevor grew up and how that affected him throughout his entire life, what lessons he learned from his father and growing up in a difficult and diverse environment. They also discuss how Trevor formed his resiliency at a young age and where his compulsion to always be number one no matter what he was doing in life comes from.
Trevor talks about his Trojan Horse strategy, and how you can stand out from the crowd, and push through the noise when it comes to building your network, or seeking a job!
