RE: "Decentralized" YouTube Alternatives on Steem? Nope, Not Yet | A Detailed Look at 3Speak and Dtube

in #steemlast year (edited)

You know... there was a time when I went for job interviews and started to tell the interviewer what I can't do first when they asked about my experience. So that they don't have expectations or to know where I was starting off. A lot of "buts". I know this, but... I can do this, but...

To my surprise, I didn't get those jobs. I know why now. I should've skipped the "buts". Lying is bad, telling half-truths when marketing isn't. In fact, that's what marketing is, often: telling the half truth that makes you look good and leaving out what makes you look bad.


Focusing on what you can do helps a lot over only talking about what you cannot do. But lying and saying you can do stuff you can't is ten times worse than focusing on what you can't do. So, people should emphasize on what they can do and tell potential employers simply what they can do. When asked specifically about something, job hunters should not lie and simply explain the details when the time comes. But that first interview may not be the best time for saying too much. People can sometimes talk too much and say too much. People should focus.

Completely agreeing with this! That's what I was trying to say actually, bringing up some experiences from when I was really young. Not sure if I made my point 100% clear though at the time. ;)

that is good to hear and i was not totally sure and i just wanted to say something

Sure, I'm glad you did!

Yes, much better to go in and get the job under false pretenses.. that surely will lead to longterm success.

Marketing is making your product shine in a good light, not selling a product you don’t have.. that’s called false advertising and is actually illegal in some countries. Not something I would really advise.

I remember saying "lying is bad".

The rest is a matter of nuances.

I wish you a Happy New Year, Justine!
