Over time I hope to offer meaningful video from recognized individuals or groups plus material specific to The CT Groups.
I am delighted to launch this section with a presentation by Martin Yate, author of the highly acclaimed "Knock 'em Dead" books; a good read available at your local book store or library.

Whether you are new to job search or have been through this many times this is a must view as it condenses into a high level overview what we have been promoting in The CT Groups meetings.
- Secrets & Strategies for Success in an Uncertain World
by Martin Yate (approximately 31 minutes)
In this free video Martin shares his 3 key tips for those in a job search. Whether you are new to job search or have been through this many times, this presentation is a must view as it condenses into a high level overview what we have been promoting in The CT Groups meetings.
Take what Martin discusses to heart. Make it part of your focus, your plan, and your activity. There is no rule you have to go through a job search alone yet most people try and most fail. There are very strong simularities between a job search and a football game.
- Both are a physical contact activity requiring organization, planning, strategy, and a winning attitude. E-mails, Internet submissions, faxes and letters do not equal "eye-to-eye time"
- A football game can go into overtime and a job search can seem to go on for ever. The person who plays the game best can take and hold an overwhelming lead to demoralize any competitor or get a hiring manager to declare an early winner and end the competition.
- Would you think for one second you could, in your wildest dreams, win The Super Bowl without a team or support organization against potentially thousands of competitors with their teams supporting them? Imagine yourself on a football field against any major college or NFL team? Will you survive to the First Down after the First Quarter's Kick-off?
- You are allowed time outs, to consult with your coach (or the entire coaching staff),
- In the end, the winner scored more points than their competitors.
