Tanaz [16:21]

“The idea of considering yourself an asset that you need to sell is really confronting. But what is essential to understand is that in the world of work and employment, employees are a product or service, whereas employers are the consumer of that product or service.”
Tanaz [24:36]

“I’ve been in businesses where the culture hasn’t been a good fit, and I think sometimes that can happen if you just kind of zoom through the hiring process… sometimes it can end up being a bad fit”
