Listen to this: Honest Symbols

Seth Godin on how we present ourselves to the world


I’m a fan of Seth Godin and I really like his podcast, Akimbo. This morning, on my way to work, I listened to the most recent episode, Honest Symbols. There’s so much wisdom here about the symbols we present to the world, what we look for when hiring and more. I’m talking to my senior portfolio class tonight about interviewing and I’m absolutely going to tell them to listen to this. You should, too.

(I love all of Akimbo. If you like this episode, you’ll like the series…)
