The Fastest Way To Accelerate Your Career (And Your Network) Is Writing Online

In the internet economy, being qualified is now only one factor of success — but most people are missing out on the other part of the equation— having people know and believe that you’re qualified.

What’s the first thing people do when they consider hiring someone? They look them up online. The same is true if you’re looking for new potential business.

In our Internet World, online writers are speeding ahead of everyone else. While everybody else is stuck in the traffic of credentialism and bureaucracy, online writers get to hit the gas and speed right past the traffic. They get to craft the narrative that everyone sees first, and put their best thinking forward.

Are you looking for a new job, a new career, or new and interesting opportunities — but you haven’t been writing about the experience and knowledge you bring to the table?

David Perell’s Write of Passage program will help you develop the consistency, clarity, and confidence you need to get your best thinking out of your head, and launch onto the internet. Enrollment is open now for a limited time.
