In today’s episode, titled “The Best Person Doesn’t Always Get the Job,” we have some completely unreleased content revolving around the hiring process. We went a little deeper into one of the uncomfortable truths — this is perhaps the one that was most uncomfortable for me: the best person doesn’t always get the job. The person delivering this key message is a marketing executive with a wealth of experience, having successfully launched products and driven growth for Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft and Google, as well as fast-growing startups. Her name is Maya Grossman, and she’s the author of the groundbreaking book, “Invaluable: Master the Skills You Need to Skyrocket Your Career.” Maya brings over fifteen years of industry expertise to our discussion, and she has some hidden, unreleased content from a past conversation that she is generously sharing exclusively on our show.

In this concise but powerful response, Maya reflects honestly on the hiring process, revealing why certain individuals, despite their exceptional qualifications, may not always land the job they deserve. She will unravel hidden factors and shed light on the strategies and mindset needed to navigate this intricate landscape successfully.

Join us as we uncover the truths behind the hiring process, challenge conventional wisdom, and gain invaluable insights from Maya Grossman, a true expert in her field.

Without further ado, let’s dive right in and learn why the best person doesn’t always get the job.
