Another Reason You Feel Like an Imposter…and What You Can Do About It…

Posted by

Whether we like it or not, our self-image is impacted by the opinions of others.

Okay, you’re thinking, where are you going with this?

Because we’re impacted by the opinions of others, we cannot let others develop opinions about us without actively contributing to their development of that opinion.

No, I don’t mean, tooting your own horn so much that you alienate everyone who gets within earshot of you.

The value in my career strategies is best understood by reading what others have said about my work…


  • What I like most about ‘Job Hunting Secrets’ is how Clark continues to motivate you throughout the book to move through and around the inevitable obstacles and rejections with what seems like an endless supply of advice for every situation. ~ Andrew Palmer, Career Military Aviation Instructor


  • Halfway through the book I had found so many great ideas I had to stop reading and start implementing them right away. I guess you could say that my first changes (with only half the book read) helped me land my role. ~ Justin Dux, Salesforce Administrator, Be the Match (After reading LinkedIn Strategies to Take Your Career to the Next Level)


  • I used Clark Finnical’s excellent tips to improve my LinkedIn profile. After applying the updates, the next week I received several emails and calls from recruiters, stating they had seen my LinkedIn profile and wanted to talk. This was the first time any recruiter had ever mentioned my profile. ~ Glenn Cate, Wireless Engineer


Until you read these testimonials, you had no clue whether my books were life-changing or no more valuable than the paper they’re printed on.


Now, you do know.

What about you?

Remember, potential clients or hiring managers will not understand your value until you start sharing testimonials from your customers or former employers.


Once you share these testimonials and make a regular practice of doing it, others will treat you differently.


As you share these testimonials and make a regular practice of doing it, you will start thinking differently and you will finally shed your imposter syndrome.
