Career Lessons I Learned from Selling Ginsu Knives

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

8:30am to 9:30am (EST)

The presenter was laid off in the 1990s and a friend offered him a summer job selling Ginsu knives. Fifteen years later, he now has his own technical writing and staffing company, but will always remember seven career lessons he learned from selling Ginsu knives—and shares them in this session.
