  • The Difference Between A Person Who Finds A Job And One Who Doesn’t

    Learn the elements that will separate successful job hunters from those who will be remain unemployed.


    I love this business and what it teaches me! This morning my client asked a great question:

    “What’s the single most important differentiator between a person who finds a job and a person who doesn’t?”

    We shared a few ideas together and the client seemed pleased, yet the question inspired me to put further thought into the matter. Beyond the basics of know yourself/your brand, outstanding resume, great interview, good fit, blah blah, I wish I had added these things:

    ~~~ The ability to cope with and manage rejection. This market is unlike any I’ve witnessed in my many years in the industry. It is not for the faint of heart and the job seeker of today will be rejected several times (most likely) as rejection simply goes with today’s job hunt territory. Expect it!

    ~~~ The resilience factor — the ability to bounce back quickly and completely once you’ve been kicked in the head (and heart). Instead of letting a ‘no’ stop you, don’t falter and don’t waiver in your commitment to self to keep moving forward. Onward on a daily basis; no excuses! ——->>>>>

    ~~~ The power of perseverance — how badly do you want it? The other day, I invited a job seeker to describe their level of commitment to finding a new job. They offered: “Um, a little bit….maybe.” Until you promise yourself that you will be 100% invested in your job search on a sustained basis, there is still room for perseverance growth and improvement.
