Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, March 20, 5:38 AM

Thinking back, so many important moments in my life didn't happen by luck.  I was always one of those students who had to work hard for my grades, and for anything.

 

The first time I tried out for cheerleading I didn't make the team.  That experience molded the rest of my life, because I realized that in order to achieve my goals I had to commit to practicing harder than others and than anyone believed was necessary.  it was because of the practice that I had the confidence and of course improved skills to make the team the following season.

 

Our lives are built on moments, experiences, and important decisions.  For those of you who are hitting the pavement, and losing hope -- take a step back to determine what you need to adapt, adjust, and revise.

 

Your resume.  Is it repackaged and targeted for the position, industry, and company you are applying for?  Will it make it through the robots to be seen by a human?  Does your resume have direction, and amplify your accomplishments, strengths in both qualitative and quantitative terms>

 

Your Search Strategy:  Are you simply doing what everyone else is doing or are you reaching out to friends, colleagues, groups, networks to let them know what type of positions you are in search of and asking them to pass your resume along to the right person.  Make sure that you continue to adapt your approach.

 

Review the industry and position you are applying for.  If you do your homework, you may find that the position and industry is shrinking and not growing for the geographical area you are seeking.  You have two choices...repackage your skills and experience towards another job/industry or search where the industry is growing and thriving.

 

Interviewing is a skill that you can strengthen and improve.  Sure it takes alot of time.  Of course the rejections are easy.  Remember, when the going gets tough the tough get going. 

 

If any readers have any words of inspiration for our readers...would love to hear from you.  I have talked to many of you in search of jobs, and it is because of you that I do what I do.

 

Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

If you are in the job search, it is worthwhile reviewing this article to see if any of the various sites or resources listed will help you during the job hunt.

 

Paul has provided numerous sites to consider as resources grouped together in a logical fashion.

 

They are broken down by variuos stages of the job hunt. My one nit, too bad navigation is not built into the page to move around by section.

 

Top level phases of the job hunt include:

 

Job Exploration

Picking a Career

Motivation

Assessing Your Experience Level

Finding a job

Networking

Interviewing

YOU hold the key to your #Interview Success!

YOU hold the key to your #Interview Success! | Job Advice - on Getting Hired | Scoop.it
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

If you are trying to figure out the secret code for doing well in all interviews...the one ingredient that is important regardless of the interivewer, interview style, company culture, and position you are applying for is Y - O - U...You!

 

Knowing who you are, what strengths you have, how your skills add value to the position, team and company is critical.  You have to be able to pay attention,and flex your communication style during the interview to connect with your interviewer. 

 

Do you have a strong understanding of your communication style?  Do you tend to ramble?  Do you tend to talk fast?  Do you tend to interrupt people when they are speaking?  Or are you more conservative in your gestures, and speak with a quiet slower pace?  Do you tend to undervalue your accomplishments?  Do you get stage fright? 

 

Knowing yourself is important, because you are in the driver's seat!  Figure out how to come across as the best version of you.  Practice, rehearse, do your homework so that you will walk away being proud that you did your very best.

Finding a #Job When You've Been Out of Work a While

Finding a #Job When You've Been Out of Work a While | Job Advice - on Getting Hired | Scoop.it
Do something to fill the gap on your resume.

Via Josie Gibson
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

I know it is not easy being out of work, and keeping yourself motivated after countless sent resumes, interviews, and thanks but no thanks response letters!  No doubt it is tough out there and competition is fierce.

 

 I am not going to tell you to simply be positive and you will feel better, because I believe in a bit of tough love.  I know how the applicant systems work, and even the best and most targeted resumes may not make it to be seen by an actual human.

 

The question is what can you do to improve your chances, and not simply do what everyone else is doing? 

 

One excellent suggestion in this article is filling in the gaps on your resume.  If you are applying for positions which require particular skills, why not volunteer to fill in the gaps on your resume?  Have your elevator speech ready when someone asks you what you do.  Be prepared to share with them the type of positions you are looking for, and if they wouldn't mind hand delivering your resume to the hiring manager.

 

I find if I focus on what is within my control it helps me to appreciate progress I am making, and take note on what isn't working, and what I need to adapt in my approach. 

 

Hope you find this article helpful.  Please let me know if you have any particular questions that I could help with.
