If you’re struggling to land a job or even a new freelance gig, there’s something we can learn from people who have been there, done that. Like a hundred times.
Meet Dave Herman, a struggling actor in New York City. In 2012 he landed 100 (yes, you read that right) jobs which included a night receptionist, script reader, bartender, newspaper boy, dog walker and professional laughter. Sure, he blogged about it and some “occupations” may seem questionable like substitute student and thief, but the point is he landed a variety of gigs and there’s lessons to be learned from that feat.
