A Guide For A Successful Job Search


The process of job hunting [and/or reinvention] sometimes offers more questions than answers.  In coaching individuals over the past decade, I have learned and seen what does not work – and what has proven to be effective in a highly competitive market.  No matter what the industry, level, job title/description, or salary, the basic “4Rs” are needed:

  • Resume. A resume MUST show how your experience translates into solutions and assets an employer can use.  A resume should be "accomplishment" driven to get noticed.
  • Responsibility. YOU are responsible for demonstrating how you'll be of service and convey this  every step of the process.

  • Reach. Connections matter.  How you reach your network, the people you want to work for, the gatekeepers and every single person you speak to along the journey of the job hunt is forming an impression of you.  

  • Results.  When you present yourself with confidence, ease, clarity of purpose, and you know what you want to convey, you get results.  If you don't know what makes you unique, don't expect anyone else to.  You have to know what makes you valuable to an employer.
