The US Bureau of Labor Statistics put the US workforce at around 160 million people. That is a lot of resumes and applications to the same companies you are applying for!

How do you position yourself to not only stand out but also genuinely have what it takes to excel and succeed in the corporate world?

In case you have not realized it, companies are starting to look less for the academical achievements and more for additional skills and attributes.

The question of if the applicant is coachable is probably one of the most important ones. They want to know, is the applicant focused, concentrated, determined, hardworking, equipped with lots of perseverance?

Can this applicant cope with setbacks and failure and still get back on the mission? Does the applicant have leadership skills and can he/she work in a team - or even better does he care for a team?

No doubt you will learn your academical skills at school, but that’s about it. The things that you really need to not only succeed but to make your career take off are not taught at school.

For those things, you are left alone.

What if I tell you that there is something that you can learn and do that the employers will immediately spot and always recognize as an outstanding skill; making you more preferable over others.

What is it, you ask?

It is being a black belt in the martial arts. As a black belt you could not only be the boss’s bodyguard which on its own makes you interesting already but here’s what recruiters can tell about you from the information that you have a black belt.

You obviously have proven commitment over many years if not decade(s). You have determination, focus, perseverance, and grit and you are also willing to practice your mind and spirit. Countless repetitions and tedious work do not seem to scare you off, and obviously, you can stand your ground.

Between two candidates with equal academic skills, as the CEO of a company, who would I pick?

The answer is obvious, I would choose the black belt any day - he or she have already proven his/her self.

That’s what Christina Paula, a 32-year-old single mother discovered. Suddenly made redundant by her previous employer, Christina was almost hopeless at the thought of beginning the job search process again.

Yet by resuming her martial arts lessons, she was able to distinguish herself from other applicants wherever she applied for a job, getting offers from several companies. Her story is not unique as there are countless other stories I could share.
