Words from the Wise 45: Jordan DuPree Jr

 In 25th Anniversary, Articles, Careers, Words from the Wise

This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.

Jordan DuPree Jr said:

“Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly and you will be amazed at the results.”

Proteus Career Management says:

“You won’t have a successful career, it will remain just a job, unless you have a positive mind set and act accordingly.”

The lesson? “Project the right attitude.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

Candidates are called for interview according to their experience, qualifications and background. At interview it is those with the right attitude who are given another bite of the cherry and it is one these who will eventually receive an offer. We choose our life partners in much the same way: we look at them, we assess how they dress, what they do for a living, where they live, what qualifications they have. If they pass muster we then engage with them further but it is their moral compass, values, character and attitude that makes our final decision.
