But I Need Experience To Get A Job

Steven Kneiser
1-minute read

Do you honestly believe
you have zero experience?

I disagree with the very premise of this tired meme:

I need experience to get a job
but I need a job to get experience

The real problem here is
your discomfort with & inability to
communicate your relevant experience

Who said you need a job to get experience?

Don’t gate-keep yourself
out of an industry with no gate-keepers

What are you
…a neurosurgeon?

Give experience, don’t get it

Is this very relevant to you?


Did I offer a clear next action?


Should I write more on this?


I love hearing your
comments & questions!

The chatbox (down to the right)
sends straight to my phone
where I race to respond
