I meet many executive jobseekers who have not launched a jobsearch in a very long time, but who are unwilling to embrace new practices.
How many of you are ready to throw in the towel on your jobsearch because you are sick of getting the same results?
Have you considered that you may be getting the same results because you are using the same, ineffective methods over and over again?
--Your executive resume should reflect the career achievements and industry qualifications that are most relevant to prospective employers, instead of what you have deemed important
--You should have a solid job search plan that includes specific companies you want to target, instead of depending on whatever appears in the online postings for the week
--You should be aware of online identity and how social media can enhance your jobsearch, instead of creating a resume profile and waiting for recruiters to contact you
--You should be comfortable reaching out to people you don't know and making cold calls for informational interviews, instead of asking the same contacts over and over again for job referrals
--You should join an executive jobsearch club or create your own support team, instead of being embarrassed about your unemployment and trying to go it alone
When you want change to occur in your life, success has to start in your mind first and then appear through your deliberate actions...want to learn more about avoiding deadly mindsets and ineffective job search tactics?
