It seems many people still believe that employment is found by working really hard to locate available jobs. But that is only a part of the process, and it is often the weakest part! Most job seekers waste time, are looking in the wrong places, and do little to manage their time.
A successful job search employs multiple approaches, is thoughtful and prayerful. Many want to know how to plan well and then how to turn the plan into results. With the right mix of methods and weekly prioritization, the job search will achieve success.
Having two résumés … that doesn’t seem necessary, but it absolutely is to get that next best career job. And each is equally important. The oral résumé is used to super-charge your interviews and it engages more networking help than any other thing you can use. It has a simple structure. It packs a powerful punch.
The written résumé can be developed using different styles, but the résumés having success have a few things in common and stand head and shoulders above the competition. Learn the steps to develop both of these résumés so you have a dynamite one-two knockout punch!
Each time you create a version of your résumé it seems there’s a reason to revise it. Sometimes a prospective employer causes you to consider changing, deleting or adding a small piece. Sometimes an adviser suggests a revision you hadn’t considered before, which just might make a significant difference.
During the résumé inspection, ideas are shared, different styles exhibited, variations are reviewed, and everyone leaves enriched by the experience. This is the time to practice the oral résumé and receive helpful feedback about your written résumé. It is a time to encourage and be encouraged.
The news is this: If you don’t have a large network, you can still develop one. If you aren’t good at networking, you can learn how. If you are not outgoing, you can learn how to network effectively. And if you are tracking down jobs on the Internet, or using a headhunter to avoid networking, you are missing “big time!”
Networking is something we all wish we did better. It is the single best way to land that next career job … better than all the other approaches put together! In this session you will learn the essence of really good networking and how to do it with great effectiveness. Done right, it is easy, comfortable and generates lifelong results.
The keys to successful interviewing lie in preparation for and then controlling the interview. Most interviewers are not prepared, so it is vitally necessary that you prepare all the more. There is no reason to leave the outcome of an interview totally to chance.
To prepare involves several components: Gathering information, rehearsal and prayer. To properly control the interview involves knowing when and how to use your 2-Minute Drill, telling your story, listening well and selling yourself as the “solution” to the interviewer’s needs.
Work with résumé coaches to radically revise both your oral and written résumés. You will get more interviews! Receive personal help to create the résumé you need for a successful career transition.
Success minded individuals will be shown little known career success tactics along with the value of evaluating personal priorities, continued learning, and developing one’s discipline to achieve career and life success.
Learn “winning” responses to behavioral interview questions which will position you ahead of the competition. Examples will be shared to provide real-time practice. You’ll receive invaluable and encouraging feedback.
