DO YOU EVER FEEL DISCOURAGED BY YOUR JOB SEARCH?
Here’s a list of top 5 reasons why it might be time to ask for help so you can finally get the job YOU want AND deserve!
1. You’re sending hundreds of resumes with no callbacks
If you’ve been searching for a new “job” for more than 6 months – it’s time to ask for help. It should take you no more than 3 to 6 months (9 months with Covid-19) to find a new position when you’re using the right techniques and strategies.
In this case, the culprit is probably your resume. There are simple strategies such as tailoring your resume to match the job description that will help you get noticed so you can finally GET THE JOB YOU DESERVE!
2. You send out generic cover letters
You find yourself sending out cover letters without putting any real time and effort on tailoring each one for every position you apply to. I get it … you’re sending too many resumes – you don’t want to be writing that many unique cover letters.
But, that’s a BIG FAUX PAS! Taking the time to write a unique cover letter for each employer will increase your chances of being noticed and recruited for an interview.
3. You’re not 100% confident when you answer interview questions
Not sure if your answer left a lasting impression?? Do you want to find out how to answer interview questions so you can be top of mind and the BEST candidate? Be YOU, be honest, and answer using the S.T.A.R. Method.
What’s the S.T.A.R. Method? It’s a unique technique that helps you format your answers so you’re always sharing a story with potential employers that will help them remember you.
Start with the SITUATION/ TASK, your ACTIONS and then, the RESULT.
4. You hate networking
Networking can be fun! It doesn’t always have to be about attending cocktail parties and schmoozing. You can build genuine professional connections that will lead to meaningful employment if you know how to be strategic.
By asking for help, you can discover your UNIQUE networking style and enjoy meeting other professionals so you can tap into the hidden job market and find a career you LOVE and DESERVE.
5. You don’t know what I’m talking about when I mention the hidden job market or you’ve heard of it, but don’t know how to tap into it.
The hidden job market represents 90-95% of jobs that are available at any given time. These positions are not the once posted online. So when you spend 100% of your job search sending out resumes to online postings, you’re only targeting 5-10% of job opportunities.
I know, this is not good news.
But, there’s hope.
You can ask for help and increase your chances of successfully conducting a job search. You can learn simple tips and strategies to help you take actionable steps so you can successfully conduct a job search and finally get a career you LOVE and DESERVE.
