HTYC 059 with Jenny Foss

She’s a Career Consultant/Resume Writer/Entrepreneur/Social Media Strategist/Blogger, helping people advance their careers through defining and communicating their personal brands effectively for over 4 years now with JobJenny, all while running her firm, the Oregon-based Ladder Recruiting Group which specializes in the robotics/automation and manufacturing sectors.

She’s also a regular columnist on, knows a lot about robots, and makes a mean margarita!

Jenny Foss quit climbing the corporate ladder in her marketing career to take a “leap of faith” and join a friend’s recruiting firm. She understands both “sides” of the hiring equation, working with both recruiters and jobseekers.

Jenny says the key to selling yourself is BEING yourself and to remember that “you’ll NEVER bore anyone into buying from you!”
