This article is an addendum to an article discussing how a college degree isn’t enough to impress employers. To compete in the current economy you need differentiators. You need something that makes you stand out from the crowd.

I’ve done some hiring myself. I’ve forgotten most of the people that applied. There are a handful that are hard to forget.

Sometimes they’re hard to forget for bad reasons. They spell stuff wrong. They interview poorly. They make a bit of a fool of themself. You know… stuff we all do sometimes but are still quite embarrassing.

Sometimes they’re hard to forget because they stand out from the crowd.

Throughout the article I tried to stay on point to keep from dashing too far off into the weeds.

In this article, I’m going to wander off and hope I’m not covered in deer ticks by the end of the article.

I’m going to be going over 24 potential differentiators you can use to stand out from the crowd. Take note though, you don’t need all 24 to stand out. In fact, if you attempt to do all of them then you’ll inevitably fail. Focus hard on getting 2 or 3 strong differentiators and then sell those individual points based on the individual employment opportunity.

So… to dig into the weeds:
