hey my name is russell brunson and i

00:01

want to welcome you to my channel now

00:02

typically i talk about entrepreneurs and

00:04

how to scale companies but

00:05

today i want to talk about how you can

00:07

actually land your dream job

00:08

or how to get the attention of somebody

00:10

you want to work with or for

00:12

it works for connecting with anybody so

00:13

use it as you will and to explain this

00:15

i’m going to actually

00:16

show you examples of people who work

00:18

here at clickfunnels today

00:19

who did the things i’m going to be

00:20

showing you

00:25

so like i said my name is russell and i

00:27

own a company called clickfunnels but

00:29

when i got started we had just

00:30

three of us six years later we have over

00:33

450 full-time employees

00:35

which is kind of crazy so because of

00:37

that people are always asking me how do

00:38

i get a job with you

00:40

we’ve dealt with tons of applications

00:42

traditional resume drop-offs or mail-ins

00:44

we’ve had a lot of creepy people

00:46

do a lot of super creepy stuff all

00:48

trying to get that coveted job now i

00:50

understand there are a few that have

00:51

done it right and honestly if you do it

00:53

right

00:53

it’s kind of an art form and the ones i

00:55

want to share with you today are ones

00:56

that almost

00:57

any employer anyone who’s awesome would

00:59

appreciate and

01:00

love to have you do to actually land the

01:02

dream job with them all right number one

01:04

be a fan first now by fan i don’t mean

01:07

stalker there is a difference don’t just

01:08

show up at the front door

01:10

don’t send them weird gifts in the mail

01:11

well you can send cool gifts just not

01:13

the weird ones it’s amazing and creepy

01:15

a good example of this is stephen larson

01:17

now steven was a huge clickfunnels fan

01:19

he read the books he listened to

01:20

podcasts he consumed all the information

01:22

he watched the videos and when we did

01:23

our big funnel hacking live event he

01:25

knew that this was the thing he needed

01:26

to do

01:27

to get in front of me to get a job now

01:29

unfortunately for him he didn’t have the

01:30

actual money he needed to fly to san

01:32

diego to get the airplanes the hotels

01:34

everything and so what he did

01:35

i had bootstrapped my way to that first

01:37

event i had no money for it traded

01:39

funnels for plane tickets funnels for

01:40

hotel nights

01:41

now what i didn’t know at the time i

01:42

wish i would have known he didn’t have

01:43

enough money for a hotel room so he

01:45

actually slept in the lobby there at

01:46

funnel hiking live

01:47

woke up every morning got cleaned up in

01:49

the bathroom and then came back for day

01:51

number two and day number three

01:52

now the way that i found out about

01:54

stephen at the very end of the event he

01:55

walked over to the other clickfunnels

01:57

employees and said

01:58

i love what you guys do he’s like how in

01:59

the world can i work with you what does

02:00

that look like

02:01

so one of the other employees said well

02:03

you should just apply it and so stephen

02:04

went and applied

02:05

two days later i got a call um from

02:08

brentwood peters

02:08

we saw your resume do you want to be

02:10

russell brunson’s funnel builder

02:12

assistant

02:12

and i was like you guys are going to pay

02:13

me to do this that’s ridiculous so i

02:15

said absolutely

02:16

that’s how it started that’s how it

02:18

happened the rest is history he spent

02:19

two years working right next to me

02:21

as my full-time funnel builder and the

02:22

reason why we hired him is because he

02:24

was a fan

02:25

first i didn’t have to go re-teach him

02:27

all this stuff or have to go like

02:28

convince them that our culture was right

02:30

he came in understanding those things

02:31

and knowing those things so we just had

02:33

to get to work

02:33

and just so you know you don’t have to

02:35

go sleep in a hotel lobby to be

02:36

considered a fan you can just simply

02:38

like and comment subscribe share this

02:40

video on your fan page

02:42

that would be just as good as well and

02:43

if you wanna work for somebody else do

02:44

the same thing for their content as well

02:46

all right number two is showing off what

02:48

you can do not just saying what you can

02:50

do

02:50

you know the old saying that says

02:51

actions speak louder than words that’s

02:53

so

02:54

true especially when you’re trying to

02:55

land your dream job a couple years ago i

02:57

was looking for

02:58

a full-time copywriter to work with me

02:59

at the time i was writing all my copy it

03:01

was taking so much of my time i had over

03:03

a hundred people

03:04

apply to be my full-time copywriter now

03:06

what’s crazy is from the application i

03:08

got 99 resumes sent to me

03:10

only one person of the entire group

03:13

wrote a sales letter to sell me

03:14

i’m coming here and the sales letter is

03:16

shockingly good so it’s like how’d you

03:17

come into your office each morning and

03:18

tackle the most pressing coffee test

03:19

while learning to write just like you in

03:21

the process

03:21

probably that you never actually get my

03:23

voice like which is a huge fear i have

03:25

and hey you’re probably too busy

03:26

training writer holy crap that is

03:27

another big fear i have this

03:28

one actually pitched me knew my false

03:30

beliefs knew my concerns resolved them

03:32

amazing it was amazing someone who put

03:34

in the effort to actually use their

03:35

craft and use their skill

03:36

to sell me on why i should hire them

03:38

instead of just praying that their

03:39

resume would do the job for them they

03:40

should know at this point

03:42

that copy sells if they’re not going to

03:43

sell them probably not good enough to

03:45

sell me whatever the thing is you’re

03:46

gonna do

03:47

do the thing and show them that you can

03:48

actually do it that goes so much further

03:50

than any resume could ever dream of

03:52

doing

03:52

number three create your own audition

03:55

instead of creating a resume create an

03:56

audition

03:57

we hate resumes too they are so boring i

03:59

hate them as much if not more than you

04:01

do

04:01

you gotta deal with one i’ve gotta deal

04:03

with thousands instead of sending me a

04:04

resume

04:05

send me your audition if i wanna speak

04:07

at a big seminar in a big stage

04:09

somewhere

04:09

i don’t tell them i’m a good speaker i

04:11

make a speaker reel of me speaking i

04:12

send those so that people can actually

04:14

see me doing the thing it’ll free all

04:16

entrepreneurs

04:17

my initial goal is not to make you a

04:19

billion dollars my initial goal is to

04:20

get you to break even now you have a

04:22

tool that will consistently think about

04:23

what your craft is what the skills the

04:25

thing that you want to do

04:27

for the company you’re looking for make

04:28

an audition tape that way you can show

04:30

them your skill set your personality

04:31

your character your enthusiasm

04:33

and why you feel like you’re the best

04:34

person to work for them that’ll rise to

04:36

the top of

04:37

all the resumes as they go when they

04:39

watch your audition video

04:40

one really cool example this is

04:42

katherine jones now catherine never

04:43

looked for a job for me but she wanted

04:45

to speak at funnel hacking live she

04:46

wanted to get in front of our audience

04:47

so instead of just sending me an email

04:49

or sending me a tweet or dm or something

04:51

she went and she created an entire box

04:53

with multiple presentations about why

04:55

she’d be an amazing speaker

04:57

an amazing presenter she then signed up

04:58

for our coaching program

05:00

went to all the events we did and

05:01

eventually she found the time when i was

05:03

speaking at stage and for a whole bunch

05:04

of people where she could deliver her

05:06

box

05:06

we had an objective to hand deliver

05:10

to the man himself and i think operation

05:13

dropbox we killed it which stuck out it

05:16

popped in my head i kept that with me i

05:18

traveled all the way home

05:19

when i got home i looked at all the

05:20

things inside the box i watched all the

05:21

videos

05:22

within minutes i knew that she was the

05:24

right speaker for funnel hacking live

05:27

so matter what job you’re trying to get

05:29

or what client you’re trying to land

05:30

send them a video it’s so much easier

05:32

for them and for you

05:34

and if you want to take it to the next

05:35

level put it in a box put it in a

05:36

package put it on a video card something

05:38

that’s gonna get their attention

05:39

and stick out much more than any resume

05:41

ever could number four attend the best

05:43

networking event now obviously in our

05:45

industry funnel hiking live is the best

05:47

but in every industry there’s always

05:49

events you can attend so you can network

05:51

and get to know the key

05:52

decision makers inside of any business

05:53

inside any community there’s a huge

05:55

percentage of people who work at

05:56

clickfunnels today

05:57

who first went to a funnel hacking live

05:59

event became part of the community then

06:01

they had a desire to work with us

06:02

to take our message out to the world and

06:04

that’s how they got here on top of the

06:05

big events it’s also important to go to

06:07

small networking events in fact one of

06:08

my favorite stories

06:10

is uh john parks who is the head of the

06:11

click funnels advertising team

06:13

i actually met him on uh family reunion

06:15

and john

06:16

saw me and thought i’m gonna get that

06:18

guy to join my network marketing

06:19

opportunity

06:20

he spent an hour in about pitching me on

06:22

his opportunity eventually i turned the

06:23

corner and i pitched someone with the

06:24

opportunity i was working the time and i

06:26

signed him up

06:27

he started working with me and now 15

06:29

years later he runs the entire

06:30

advertising department here at click

06:31

funnels it all started because both of

06:33

us went to a small

06:34

intimate networking event it was a

06:35

family reunion but the concept is same

06:37

is finding small networking groups with

06:39

the core people that you want to work

06:40

with

06:41

another amazing story is dave woodward i

06:43

met dave about 15 years ago at a little

06:45

event that me and stu mclaren put on we

06:47

told that all the attendees if they

06:48

wanted to take the speakers out to lunch

06:50

they could go to the back of the room we

06:52

had sign up sheets to take speakers out

06:53

to breakfast lunch and dinner

06:54

and dave jumped up ran to the back of

06:56

the room grabbed my cider sheet

06:58

and signed up on every single meal

06:59

breakfast lunch and dinner and i had

07:01

breakfast lunch and dinner with dave

07:02

every single day for four days and built

07:04

a friendship and eventually a

07:06

partnership

07:07

so what you can learn from this is even

07:08

if you’re introverted and shy like me

07:10

you need to go to events find the key

07:12

decision makers and figure out a way to

07:13

stick out that way when they hear your

07:15

name they’re gonna know who you are

07:16

ahead of time it makes landing that

07:18

dream job so much easier

07:20

number five is just start working for

07:22

the company even if you don’t have a job

07:24

yet

07:24

for example find out how to become an

07:26

affiliate and sell their products online

07:28

if you go and start selling their

07:29

products it’s really simple and really

07:31

easy then to say hey i’m already selling

07:32

your stuff

07:33

can i get a job even inside of our two

07:34

common club x coaching program a lot of

07:36

our coaches

07:37

were people who initially were in our

07:38

facebook group just answering questions

07:41

telling people how to do what they were

07:42

asking to do and eventually like man you

07:44

are so good at helping our customers

07:45

can we pay you to do what you’re doing

07:47

right now for free surprisingly

07:49

most of them said yes another example is

07:51

noah lens who’s a teenager

07:53

inside of our funnel hacking community

07:55

as we launched funnels somehow he found

07:56

my voxer id

07:58

still not sure how he did that he was

07:59

sending messages saying hey your funnel

08:01

is pretty good but i think i built a

08:02

better version he built an entire other

08:03

funnel

08:04

and then sent it to me as a gift and

08:05

said hey you can keep using yours but

08:06

mine’s better if you want you can use

08:08

mine instead and he did that over and

08:09

over and over again until eventually i

08:10

got to know noah and then i actually had

08:12

no speak at stage

08:13

at our two comma club live unlock the

08:15

secrets event so the key here

08:17

is to find the people who you already

08:19

want to work for and then you start

08:20

working for them for free

08:22

start serving them start helping them

08:23

and what’s going to happen is they’re

08:24

going to notice you

08:25

and the law of rest process you’ll hit

08:27

in and eventually they should offer you

08:28

a job

08:29

and if they don’t maybe it’s the wrong

08:30

thing maybe you should come work for me

08:31

instead as long as you’re good

08:32

make sure you’re good at what you do now

08:35

i completely

08:35

understand that going above and beyond

08:37

can be scary it’s scary to make a video

08:40

scary to put yourself out there but

08:41

what’s even scarier is not trying and

08:43

then not getting the job but i want you

08:45

just to trust the process and put

08:47

yourself

08:47

out there and just see what happens

08:48

after you do that please let me know in

08:50

the comments down below how it worked

08:51

for you what you tried what was your

08:52

creative idea cause i’d love to hear

08:54
