Use the Power of Letters to Land the Right Job!

Don’t spam! Your chances of moving beyond the original pile increase every time you make a connection with a reader. You actually communicate more when you prepare five targeted letters than 50 generic ones.

Self-Promote Using A Powerful Pitch

You meet important job search contacts every day. The people you meet when you complete routine tasks, such as shopping or taking your children to the local ball field, may know the person you want to meet or they may have friends or family working in the industry you are targeting. Plan to use the first 30 seconds of every initial face to face meeting to deliver a brief “infomercial”. Start with a smile and make eye contact before you deliver the introduction you have prepared.

Take a Leap of Fact

Have you been contacting companies in growth sectors? Do you know how many companies hire people with your skills? Are you getting the response you expect when you submit your resume? Knowing where to look for rewarding opportunities is the first step in an effective job search strategy. Develop a career plan based on an understanding of the current job market.

Use Friendly Discussions To Advance Your Career

Think about all the different people that you chat with on a regular basis. This group most likely includes family, friends, classmates, neighbors, and co-workers. Then, think about the people that you have pleasant, often personal, discussions with from time to time. This group might include your hair stylist, parents at the local baseball field, merchants in your community, or people in your religious community. Next, review any lists or rosters you have for professional organizations, social clubs, or athletic clubs. These lists will help you remember folks you meet occasionally.

Create your own path

Tired of watching other workers advance their career as you continue to exceed all expectations in your position? If you have experienced this situation, even once, you know that you can’t continue to wait for others to decide when you should be offered a promotion. Even if you are not ready to make a job change today, you will benefit from knowing how to put into action a successful self-promotion plan.

Interview Tips: Set A Positive Tone

Think of your interview as an achievement! You have attracted the attention of your target. The resume you submitted and the networking techniques you used were successful. Use this opportunity to showcase your relevant strengths and skills. Focus on learning from the experience and moving closer to securing the job you really want.
