Diana Miller's insight:

 

PREPARING FOR A SUCCESSFUL JOB SEARCH CAMPAIGN AND

GETTING OVER JOB SEARCH HURDLES

 

The most successful job searches almost always start with a plan. The right amount of preparation, planning and strategizing is essential. 

 

Planning helps you clarify your goals, understand your skills, target specific jobs and employers, gives you more confidence and puts you a step ahead of competitors. Most of all, it keeps you focused on and in control of your search campaign. 

 

I have found that successful job seekers have four things going for them:

A systematic, analytical approach to the task.A keen perception of what they have to offer and what they were looking for.A willingness to listen, take advice and try new things.The support of friends, associates etc. (this last item is vitally important--support of spouse, children, parents, in-laws, people you have worked with, etc... Keep them up to date on what you are doing. Get them involved. Get their ideas and suggestions. Get their help in practice interviews and mock telephone calls.

 

There's no single tool for conducting a successful job search. There are many creative and effective ways to go about it. Still, there are some essential tools that all job seekers should understand and have in their arsenal of strategies before they start.

 

This Community Job Club provides the sound insights and practical advice you need to get over the hurdles and help you plan to launch a successful job search campaign even in the most challenging times.

 

 

 

To Your Success,
