The challenge is on to understand the ins and outs of today’s job search market. In order to survive, we have to utilize all available resources effectively and manage the rigorous recruiting/interviewing process.
The key is to have multiple opportunities in the pipeline in order to maintain momentum and keep options open. It can be done.
In our opinion, job descriptions are merely employer’s wish lists. They are seeking the perfect candidate while job seekers are searching for the perfect positionneither exists.
The focus should be on finding the most suitable opportunity for YOU and proving that you are the best possible fit. However, we know this isn’t easy.
We understand the doubts that come from being unemployed or out of the market for a while. We understand the fears that arise when comparing oneself to the competition. We understand the frustration of applications that go unanswered, calls unreturned and emails non-responsive.
We know the work involved in finding jobs, applying to jobs, interviewing and negotiating a package, all while trying to keep your current job (not to mention a clean house, a work out routine, a social life and precious family commitments).
Finding a job is a full time job without the pay. Why spin your wheels?
Before you start your job and career campaign, STOP. If you don’t want to waste your time, energy and money, stop and think about what you’re truly looking for and how you will go after it.
