If you keep doin' what you're doin', you're going to keep gettin' what you're gettin'!
As I talk to more jobseekers who have been on the hunt a while I'm hearing:
* More frustration--sending in resumes, not hearing back...going on interviews, not closing the deal
* More confusion--wear-out from networking, running out of ideas to look for leads.
* But more determination to ask for help.
I can relate, I'm also a DIY'er--but I know when I'm beat...I know when I need to seek help to put me on the right path. There are things I'm good at--and things I'm not--so rather than continually stink at the things I'm not good at--I admit that I need help from a pro--and get it.
You are a [Project Manager, IT Director, Marketing/Communications pro, Manager, Logistics, insert your title here.]. You're not a writer, you aren't on the other side of the job interview/networking desk. You can't be everything to everyone.
I have worked with clients to successfully:
* Clarify their job search to focus on jobs they were REALLY qualified for, stop spinning their wheels, and re-worked the resume to match the requirements of those positions.
* Develop specific networking strategies, that they felt comfortable implementing and matched their personal style, to approach or re-approach networking contacts (without stalking).
* Re-write parts of their resume and cover letter for briefer, punchier and more to-the-point descriptions that are easy to read and understand (without being resume-speak).
* Talk through a job description discussing how their current industry experience on their resume would "scare" an employer--because they wouldn't see the relevancy. Provided tactics to highlight the skill set and transferable skills without being misleading.
* Provide ideas on networking leads to expand who they should talk to in an industry.
The feedback I hear from the people I coach?
Relief, a renewed sense of direction, clarity on how to proceed, they become re-engaged in the job search process--because I have answered their questions--I removed the blocks (mental or related to their resume or job interview or networking skills) that were holding them back. Aren't YOU ready to feel this way?
Yes, there's a TON of free advice available--you'll even find plenty of articles and videos I've produced--but if you don't know how to apply this advice to your situation--or your specific situation isn't being discussed--it's not going to help you.
