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:

24 Differentiators That Can Make Your College Degree POP To Employers

PLEASE STOP!

This is an absolutely essential read for anyone on this blog.

I’m about 4 hours away from something big.

The story began a decade ago when I first started to share my study strategies with other students.

I had figured out the Holy Grail of academic optimization strategies – and every intermediate step to get to it. Using this strategy, I pulled a nearly 4.0 GPA while running a double course load in college – and once I started sharing it.

Students noticed.

Droves of them.

And then teachers noticed.

Most of the teachers that were looking out for their student’s best interest got what I was saying and supported the cause. Others… well… not everyone has the student’s best interest at heart.

Anyway…

Early on (even before Smart Student Secrets,) I started writing for average students.

I knew… I was NEVER one of the “smart kids”. I was mediocre at best. And I knew, if these strategies worked for me then they could work for just about anybody. And that’s who I wanted to connect with.

But… There was a problem…

I built an audience giving these strategies away. Sure…

And I’d get messages from them. And we’d talk. And I’d hear their stories.

I’d hear from A+ students that cut their study time by 90%.

I’d hear from B students that took their grades up to A’s.

I’d hear from teachers that were sharing my strategies with their students.

I’d hear from older students how these strategies changed their life.

I love it. I love introducing these strategies that changed my life to other people.

But there was always this… but…

What about the C students?

What about the D students?

What about the students that are currently failing?

Sure… Some would reach out.. but…

They never followed through… They’d take a small step. They’d sign up. They’d learn some killer strategies. Seeing right there how powerful they were going to be…

And then… life kicks in. They lose sight of their goals.

And it’s gone.

Forever.

Student’s came to this site to improve their life. They see the possibilities. But then… they move on.

In about 4 hours, I’m going to be introducing something – an email subscriber exclusive – that can help change that.

It’s going to make more Smart Students than at any other time in this site’s history.
