Do you love me?  Will you love me forever...? I am amazed at how many people forget that an interview is a "personal selling" situation! Obviously I don't mean jumping up and down and doing a raw-raw sis-boom-bah chant but I do mean turning in your best effort AND asking for the job at the [...]

Job Search Advice:Take Risks

By |2017-10-02T15:15:51+00:00September 5th, 2014|Careers, innovation, leadership, guerrilla job hunting, Guerrilla Strategy, Hidden job market, job hunting, Strategy|

The dramatic changes we've seen in the job market in the last four years highlight the reality that the tried-and-true methods of finding a job will no longer suffice. They should remain a solid part of your plan, but they don’t provide an adequate amount of exposure to potential employers - let alone attract them to you. Standing out is the key Most people’s job searches fail because they can't get on the radar of the right hiring manager. They're simply left behind because they failed to get noticed - even though they where well qualified - perhaps even the best qualified. And I'm here to ask you to please press on! Do not keep banging your head against the same wall. Try something new - even if it's only a different wall. Do more of what works and less of what doesn't every day, AND add new tactics as often as possible. I often see people fail after trying something once or twice and give up. Or fail because they ask a friend or spouse what they thought about their "crazy idea" or tactic - and they tell them it won't work - so they drop it and don't...

Excuses can seem incredibly strong and valid at times, to the point where we end up believing they are absolute truth.  However, excuses can not only cause us to miss out on a [...]

One quick way to discover new opportunities is by doing structured search engine queries. And it’s fairly easy to do.

On the second day of Christmas - Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 revealed to me - "Two strategies to crack the hidden job market.." Click HERE for FREE DVD that gets you hired - “New Job Search Secrets" You know, most people put more time into writing down a shopping list for the grocery store than a list of employers they want to work for. Totally illogical, isn’t it? I mean, why be happy working just anywhere? Why not work for a company that excites you? Instead of blindly sending out résumés to companies you’ve never heard of before, it’s far better to first select potential employers that meet YOUR criteria and then contact them with an offer to help. Which is what you’re going to learn to do today. And one of the ways to do that is with Google. To get the best results focus all your time and effort on the companies you’ve identified as being the Tier 1 buyers of your product - you. Anything else is a waste of your time, energy and money. Target your campaign at those companies where you know you can help solve a problem. Nothing beats a direct approach...
