Stay away from people like you (until you get a job)

A Job Seeker needs support and encouragement but a job group is the wrong place to get it – anyone at a job club who gets a job will disappear so fast they won’t even leave a vapour trail. Why? because they are happy to brush off the stink and misery of not having a job. That’s the truth.

Avoid the Crowd

Don’t forget, the objective of sending in a resume is to capture the attention and interest of the Hiring Manager and to get a telephone or face to face interview. Follow up is critical!

Everyone discourages phone calls but that isn’t going to frighten you is it? I’m sure the company wants to hire go-getters; people excited about the job opportunity!

What is your job search mindset?

There are different Candidate “mindsets” around getting a Hiring Manager to offer you an interview. One mindset is “I could be really good in the job, and if they just gave me a chance, they would see” This mindset is usually accompanied by a resume that is generic, and not customized to the opportunity…Another mindset is built around improving your statistical chances of getting the interview. It involves more working and less hoping.

Mistakes that Unsuccessful Job Seekers Make

Here is a short list of lackadaisical job seeker behaviors:

1. Returning calls days later rather than hours or minutes later.
2. Losing self control in conversations and either talking too much or not answering questions.
3. Spending the majority of time at home applying for jobs online.
4. Sending out mass emails asking for help.
5. Finding escapes from working at it, such as television or shopping or golf.
6. Attending group networking events, job fairs, etc.
7. Wasting time and precious energy blaming a boss (or the economy or a spouse or others) for the current situation.

Book offers a brash new take on working moms

Reva Seth, whose new book The MomShift explores the stories of real-life women and how they navigate parenthood and career success. Paradoxically, Ms. Seth focuses on women who often became more successful after they had children. For the most part, the experiences of these women aren’t glamorous like Sheryl Sandberg’s. Yet the stories she reveals are ones we can relate to and are, frankly, remarkable.

If you can find a balance between demonstrating competency & experience, while at the same time, creating genuine interest in “your story” then you’ll get noticed, and get someone excited. A few success stories can make the difference! …………. Then the reader is nodding their head as they read your resume, learning about you, getting excited about you, and thinking… this is exactly the kind of person we need

The World is Watching You

“Of 381 college admissions officers who answered a Kaplan telephone questionnaire this year, 31 percent said they had visited an applicant’s Facebook or other personal social media page to learn more about them — a five-percentage-point increase from last year. More crucially for those trying to get into college, 30 percent of the admissions officers said they had discovered information online that had negatively affected an applicant’s prospects.”

Advice from a New Entrepreneur

I am connected to the writer, Stephanie St. Claire through facebook, and when I saw the title of her post, I checked it out right away.

“11 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started My Business” -

One of the options for a mid-career job seeker is to go into business for themselves; taking their passion or skill, from cooking to construction and creating their own opportunity if no one else is offering them one. Stephanie gives very solid advice based on her own personal experiences. I think she has identified a lot of traps new entrepreneurs fall into — my hand is up :-)  btw and waving around — Have a look and judge for yourself if doing your own thing sounds scary and exciting at the same time, or just very very scary!
