The Value of Your Experience


What makes YOU Unique is the experience you have had and how you can use it to solve problems for companies.

Here is a quick read that I found on LinkedIn that is worthy of sharing.


What Experience can be Worth

A ship engine failed, no one could fix it.Large Engine. The value of experience in a job search.

Then they brought in a man with 40 yrs. on the job. He inspected the engine carefully, top to bottom. After looking things over, the guy reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. The engine was fixed!

Seven days later the owners got his bill for $10k.

“What?!” the owners said. “You hardly did anything. Send us an itemized bill.”

The reply simply read, “Tapping with a hammer. $2 Knowing where to tap? $9,998”

Don’t Ever Underestimate Experience.
