Most people know that next to getting a job offer, getting interviews is the most important thing that they can do. In spite of that, most people don’t know how to develop a systematic strategy of massive action to get interviews. Looking for a job is a numbers game. This tutorial teaches and sustains massive action to get interviews.
Action overcomes fear. The best way job seekers can overcome the doubt, uncertainty, and fear of job loss or having to look for a job is to take massive action. Most people think they know what to do, but beyond posting a resume on a number of job sites, sending their resume to job postings and calling a few friends, recruiters, etc... they really don’t. A recent study showed that 69% of 3000 job seekers polled, after a three-week period of job searching, were only doing two major job search activities. They were emailing a resume to job board postings and calling old friends. This Tutorial teaches a systematic approach to massive activities to get more interviews, and the systematic approach of looking for a job when you have one.
This Tutorial will also teach a candidate to manage keeping a job and finding a new one at the same time.
Most people think that it’s a lot easier to look for a job when you have one. It isn’t. In fact looking for a job when you have one presents all kinds of difficult challenges. It’s just not as easy as everyone thinks. Looking for a job when you have one is like having two jobs and most people find it to be a real struggle, especially in today’s difficult interviewing environment. With this Tutorial, you will learn the most effective way to juggle both having a job and looking for one.
Psychologically, it’s more comforting to have a job even though you need to find a new one. Most candidates think that it is a position of “strength.” Although it might be psychologically comforting, it makes the job search a whole lot more difficult. Candidates often think that if they are presently employed, they are more valuable to a hiring authority. That simply isn’t so. Most hiring authorities don’t care whether you have a job or not. They care about what they want and you are no better or less a candidate if you are presently employed.
- Anyone who is currently looking for a job or looking at changing jobs.
Use these take action exercises to help prepare for your interview.
Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
There are process goals/intentions and outcome goals/intentions. Outcome goals/intentions involve outperforming other people or focusing on a specific set of outcomes; process goals/intentions focus on the specific challenges of a situation.
We have provided a checklist for your goals/intentions and a daily plan to help you in your job search.
