What Job Search School Did You Attend?
We know you did not go to school for job searching, develop a job searching trade, or gain significant job searching experience in an occupation. You are not expected to be an expert job seeker, just like we are not experts in your field. You may believe you know a lot about job seeking, but like other topics such as sports, gardening, or cooking you are really not an expert like a trained chef, professional coach, or Paul the Gardner Guy. Keeping an open mind to new systems, techniques, and methodologies while searching for a job is paramount for success.
Excerpts From Various Chapters
- Think about it this way. People are finding new employers and changing jobs right now today without ever stepping a pinky into an online job site. Just think of the hundreds of millions of people in history who found a new job and never used the Internet! You believe you are being savvy and smart by spending most of your job search time on job sites. That is a colossal mistake. When you start your day job searching try these other methods and make job sites at least number five down the list of things you do.
- Whatever the reason is that currently puts you in the situation of looking for a new job, an appropriate mental mindset towards the process is crucial. Here is why. Ask yourself which of these scenarios puts you in a better situation to find a job or make a sale more quickly. A person who is angry, blaming, feeling sorry, desperate, and depressed or someone who is ready for a fight, sees possibilities, feels challenged, believes it is a growth process, likes the learning involved, and has an abundance mentality?
- A product in the marketplace, whether it is you or cereal, needs to be sold in order for it to be successful. A product will not be successful just because it is in existence. It needs to be developed, improved, marketed, and sold. The better the salesperson and marketer, the more successful it will be. Have you heard the expression, ”know thy product”? Product knowledge is the foundation of all sales success. Without an in-depth awareness of the key attributes and selling features and benefits of a product, it is going to be more difficult to get a sale / new job. You need to identify and internalize your key selling features and benefits from the perspective of the person doing the hiring for your target occupation.
- You need to know that no matter how worried and concerned you are, there is a job out there for you. Not just any job, but a great job. The pie is enormous and there are millions of potential employers. That is a fact and never let yourself think any differently. If you find yourself thinking negatively, stop yourself and think of what you do want for yourself instead. It is a fact that you can only hold one thought at a time in your mind, positive or negative. Catch negative thinking and stop it in its track. It takes practice.
- Like any successful salesperson will tell you, you need to ”fill the pipeline”, meaning you need to get some things going in the direction of a sale (new job). You need to create energy and build momentum. While filling the pipeline, never expect instant results. A professional salesperson will also tell you that after a truly concerted effort to prospect and approach potential customers (employers), it is ALWAYS the case that you will find a qualified buyer and make a sale. This is the case whether it is in a competitive industry or in a down economy. Again, it takes time to fill the pipeline, and you must sow in order to reap.
- Guaranteeing you an easy street into your chosen occupation or progressing to higher levels is not how a productive and properly functioning marketplace works. How many businesses do you know that went from concept to success overnight? Not many. Well how does that compare to this situation, you may ask. That is easy. You are a business and you are going to be a business your entire working adult life. As such, you need to think and act from this day forward like you are an individual, professional, and marketable business entity.
