Job Search Strategies
For many people, changes in the state of the economy have created uncertainty around finding a good job. We often hear things like, “It’s so hard to find a job; so many other people are looking.” Or, “There just aren’t any/enough jobs.” We want to assure you that these statements simply aren’t true. We have helped many people find jobs they love and we know that they are out there!
The issue is that most people don’t develop the right strategy in looking for a job. Instead they search on job boards like Monster and Indeed, which are often outdated, exhausting to sort through and contain a mere 20% of available jobs. Only 1 in 10 people will actually find a great position there and unless you are the “perfect” person on paper, you may not even get a response.
One of the most powerful products we offer is our Job Search Playbook. We developed this 60-page, self-guided workbook through our extensive work in helping hundreds of people who were struggling to find a job, land that next great position, sometimes only ONE day after completing the book. From evaluating and gaining clarity around your strengths and career goals to effective resume writing and online professional profiles to networking and interview skills and what to do when you get an offer, the Job Search Playbook contains all the tips and tricks you need to develop a successful strategy for finding work you love.
