The Power of Relationships + Dirty Martini

Former Targeteer Jeff Marwede joins us in the studio for one of his favorite cocktails, a dirty martini.

A recruiter at heart, Jeff shares his journey of getting hired at Target Corp and how he transitioned out of talent acquisition into technology.

Have you ever heard the saying, "It's not what you know, it's who you know"?

In this episode we dive into the power of relationships, internal networking and how to cultivate deeper engagements with stakeholders to drive business further.

Jeff and I share the #1 way to land a job - and how you can embrace your soft skills to land your dream job even if you don't check all the marks.

Jeff gets personal as he shares how he manages his family, work and side hustle, and how he kicked cancers ass while still showing up for family and work.

Tune in for a piece of humble pie…mix up a dirty martini and listen in to learn the power of relationships.

Cheers, Renee

Dirty Martini:

2 ounces of Vodka (We used Grey Goose)

1/2 ounce dry Vermouth

1 ounce green olive juice (brine)

2-3 large stuffed green olives

Splash of water


1. Fill the shaker with ice nearly to the top.

2. Add all the ingredients. I prefer to stir my martinis for about 20-30 seconds but you can shake it (max 10 seconds), which is thought to blend the vodka and vermouth better but traditionally the shaking makes it a Bradford. Also, shaking adds air bubbles, hence the cloudy appearance, and dilutes the mix which freshens the taste.

3. Pour the dirty Vodka martini into a chilled martini glass.

4. Add olives and serve immediately. Add a splash of water to dilute to your taste.
