Great Resumes Fast » Career » An Important Question to Ask Yourself in 2015

We all have a job to do, a self to become. The purpose of life is to discover your calling. The meaning of life is to answer that call. Pick up and pay it forward. You can only give what you got, but you must know what you have first.

This holiday, the greatest gift you can give is yourself. In the context of your career, the only work worth doing comes from a place of enjoyment and expertise. You can only be great at that one thing you’ll sacrifice everything to achieve.

On the road to becoming your best self, the most important question you’ll ever ask and answer is this:

What is your gift?

Everyone has the potential to profit from their passion. We all have the capacity to cultivate our genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s stupid. Personally, I was climbing up the wrong tree and, for the sake of my career, I stepped off. I stepped back and took the time to answer one question that I will ask you now: Do you know your gift?

About the author

Jessica Hernandez, President, CEO & Founder of Great Resumes Fast

Hi, I’m Jessica. I started this company back in 2008 after more than a decade directing hiring practices at Fortune 500 companies.

What started as a side hustle (before that was even a word!) helping friends of friends with their resumes has now grown into a company that serves hundreds of happy clients a year. But the personal touch? I’ve kept that.

You might have seen me featured as a resume expert in publications like Forbes, Fast Company, and Fortune. And in 2020, I was honored to be named as a LinkedIn Top Voice of the year!

I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to help you find your next perfect-fit position!
