Most of us can agree that a traditional resume highlights the positive skills and attributes that a professional has accumulated over the course of his/her career. We are constantly promoting our acknowledgments, but we rarely spend time addressing the lessons that we have learned from our failures. This book entitled “The Perfect Rejection Resume”, is designed to encourage readers to draw inspiration from their past failures while developing the audacity to embrace adversity.

This book includes a chapter interludes by influential thought leaders, including Rashaad Lambert (Founder Founder of For(bes) The Culture; Senior Vice President of Culture & Community at Forbes), Dr. Janice Gassam (Professor and Forbes Senior Contributor), Jarry Lee (NYC Model/ Former BuzzFeed Deputy Editor), Devyn Simone (Matchmaker/ renowned television host), Gaynetè Jones (Entrepreneur and Black Enterprise Contributor), and Daron K. Roberts (Former NFL Coach, University Lecturer, and Consultant)

In this book, Dr. Joseph dives into the rugged mindset of using failure to accomplish one’s goals “by any means”. Additionally, Dr. Joseph uses his story to provide some problem-solving techniques that helped him “bend” the rules to his favor. The conclusion of this book reassures the notion that we don’t need a jury to judge our success or failure in life.

What are your next projects?

I plan on expanding my real estate portfolio this year. I currently have 3 properties under management in South Carolina and New York City, and I want to obtain at least 3 more properties this year.

What advice do you have for those struggling to find a good job during the pandemic?

I would advise people to take advantage of their social media platform, especially LinkedIn. The traditional way of obtaining a good job through the customary application process is becoming obsolete. You have to utilize different platforms to optimize the outcome of your job search.
