Job search just creeping along! Take another approach by
taking the bull by the horns and create something totally different
using unique methods.
Strategies that work! They will outperform all commonly used
conventional ways of searching for your next opportunity:
(1) Lets say
it's been way to long that you have been in the mix
out there looking for a job, so make your aggressive tactics proactive.
The traditional way is to post your resume, then wait
patiently for something to happen. Preferably a lead on a job.
But by using unconventional ways to job search, you dictate how things
are going to happen through weekly making calls and sending emails.
These should be weekly follow-ups with the corporations that you
contacted already through e-mail submissions.
You want to include all the job openings or future positions you may
know about from friends. By completing 5 calls every week, you will
increase the results and time it takes to get back a response. And
speed up your search dramatically.
(2) Zero in
on your target job search and what tactics you will incorporate.
Don't lolly gag looking at online postings,
because you will waste precious time. Instead, be more specific and
follow up on targeted industries, employers, and position you are
Don't apply for anything you see out there.
Doing that you will fool yourself into thinking like you are being
productive, but such a tactic to job hunting usually doesn't help you
attain that position you are looking for.
I worked in sales a lot of years and my company that I worked
for wanted us on the phone cold calling. I did not like doing that
because it doesn't get any business. So I changed my strategies to
following the above ideas to my sales position.
They somehow worked. I shot out way ahead by a mile of my co-workers
because I was targeting not calling blindly
out of desperation for luck to hit me.
search targets that are aggressive and are consistent: Nothing is
going to come to you by not having a prepared plan ahead of time.
You have to go get it ahead of everyone else.
If you send out 4 resumes in one week, and
only 2 in the second week, what will happen?
You are definitely not keeping up. Instead be very aggressive and send
out 15 resumes in a weeks time, week after week keep on it. This in
return should result in a steady flow of job interviews within a couple
of months maybe 3 months down the road.
Keep sending them out, it will take months to
hear something back but when you do, you will see that all
that work payed off down the road now that calls have increased
dramatically months later. That’s what it is all about in the end. To
(4) Work it
any way you want, searching for a job is a giant numbers game
just as it was in my sales position I talked about earlier above. The
tactics of bomb barding out your resume to hundreds of potential
employers is a huge job all in itself.
So that doesn't leave room to target any specific targets you
may have. No matter, you do the blast after your targeting has been
advantage of the Internet and the search capabilities
offered, you will easily end up spending a lot of dollars, and you will
see very little results. The best news, is that many
job search techniques are free and many are low-cost.
So many consulting agents working with applicants have often stressed
that they will supply you with employer names who are hiring so you can
contact them. Are you aware you can obtain that exact same type of
information for no cost by searching the Internet yourself?
You may be very surprised at the information out
there on the WWW, maybe you aren't very surprised if you have already
found it yourself.
(6) Many of
the great items in life don't come to us automatically, most are
manually. The power you create
by using automation would make job searching a lot easier. You must
advantage of your home personal computer and the
Internet tools that are free for you to use and search with,
so you can save a lot of personal time during your week.
Life is way too short, to spend all your free time searching for job
leads. Improve your life's quality by using the automated job search
features in any way that you can possibly think of.
job search techniques have a fault, the fault is too much focus on the
Job Market that is only visible, or only those jobs most commonly known
from outside of any hiring organization.
There is this company where my son works, that does hiring by paying
a bonus to employees for referrals. My son has helped quite a few of
his friends attain a position in this company and by using that
process, made a couple hundred in referral bonuses.
Three fourths of all the jobs advertised are not in
the Visible Job Market outside of the company. A lot of
companies prefer to hire from within or interview a referral from a
trusted employee. So what can I do now?
Tell everyone that you are immediately available. You must
want to be very aggressive in your job search, don't be shy. Try to
target the Hidden Jobs through contacting friends weekly
as much as possible.
Get the job you want now, don't wait for it to come and get you..
Follow all of those job search helpful hints as much and as often
possible, by doing this you will definitely shorten your search, at the
same time boosting incoming interviews you get in the future.

Find the Right
Is this the right job to keep me happy? Each one of us thinks
it at some time or another. Happiness is really all we want. How to
find the right job for me is the next question you ask yourself. A lot
of people hate their jobs, chances are you might be one of
them. Also, you will produce more everyday if you are happy
and content in your job. Most of us endure it as long as possible for
many different reasons.
However, if you have the luxury of choosing the job that you
want, like for instance jobs in IT software, oil production, telecom,
hospitality etc. There is no surefire guarantee that expending all your
efforts, you will find the right job that suits you but focusing your
approach to get the best job to make you happy is an endless battle.
First you have to ask yourself why you would want the job. Is it
jealousy because you know someone else that is doing it and enjoying
themselves? That is no reason you should want that job too.
The circumstances and the skill set of someone else are much different
than yours. So their happiness level will also be quite different from
yours too. So, ignore jealousy and look within yourself to find out
what is it that you would want to do that would really make you happy.
People can only be happy in a job where they are deeply
involved in making their own choices. Getting pleasure from a
job cannot be forced on you, you have to ask for it. You will feel
happy with the job only when you enjoy doing it. That is the main thing
that gives a person fulfillment and joy in their jobs.
So if you feel emotionally connected to a great job or not, whether you
are being appreciated and rewarded by your employer, whether your co
workers at the company create a great atmosphere to work in, it also
depends on whether your compensation, perks and benefits.
Still all of this to some degree benchmarks whether you are happy
at your current job position.
Complete a skills and competencies test. Identify the kind of lifetime
job that matches your capabilities. Once that test is complete, only
about half your work is complete. Believe me, it is a huge task.
People really don't know for years what they really would like to do to
make them happy. Once you have completed that daunting task, the bulk
of the work is done. Based on the results, you can start searching for
jobs in that area of interest and narrow it down to a certain position.
If you were honest in making your job choice, then all it takes is one
more step in finding the right position in the workforce that will give
Most of the time the perfect job will be a combination of some, if
not all, of the above-mentioned points. A person who is
fortunate to find a job that offers all these can say they are happy in
their job. You probably won't even have to say it, your face will tell
all who meet you.
