Now for something completely different.
How would you like to find out what the other guerrilla job hunters did that successfully landed them an interview and job offer? Yes? Read on.
I faced an interesting dilemma when I sat down to write Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0; our case studies were plentiful and powerful. The stories needed to be told, and shared, so that you can learn from others’ success. Unfortunately, we have more success stories than room. So what did we decide to do? We decided to follow our own advice and integrate old media tactics with new media platforms.
Before you might have simply sent in a resume to a hiring manager, but if you follow our advice now you might send in a cover sheet and a link to your web site whereupon the hiring manager would see your pictures, your videos, your blogs, your accomplishments, and anything else that made sense to help you get the job. You’ll see that we open up each successful case study with the situation, and we wrap it up with what was accomplished.
It’s one thing to read about what to do or listen to a speaker talk about what to do, it’s quite another to have an actual job hunter talk about what they went through – WARTS and all. I was very fortunate to meet or work with nearly everyone of the individuals whose stories I will bring you every week. I was inspired. I would like you to read their stories and be inspired. These guerrillas have had the courage to try something new. They are my personal heroes and I hope you will take the time to drop a note to them on LinkedIn.
These successful Guerrilla Job Hunters represent every gender, race, age and career point; student, professional, personal contributor, manager, and executive—because the tactics will work for anyone.
I chose these people because each one of them employed different combinations of tactics. Many of them share common tactics like the guerrilla resume and the guerrilla cover letter but each guerrilla job hunter chose different tactics to scale the wall, so-to-speak, and land the initial interview. Heck, I even learned some new tactics myself. The weapons and tactics you choose will be unique to your situation.
