All around you are job-search realignments and the changing nature of work.
For example, according to Organisation Solutions, an organization that works with managers and executives worldwide, states that globalization, the intro of new technologies, and the realignment of workplace expectations are behind the changing company drivers.
Are you ready for change?
When was the last time you took a serious look at your career direction?
Where are you now?
Where do you want to be?
As a job seeker, you know that being proactive is a must in this fast-paced world. And many people are just too wrapped up in their day-to-day job activities to evaluate where they are in their own career.
Suddenly, the game plan looks and feels completely different, and no one gave you the new rules—until now.
My book, Win Interviews! The New Must-Have Game Plan, helps job seekers understand how to prepare effectively for changing jobs today, what the new rules are, and how you can make them work to your benefit. It also gives you critical insight into the mindset and expectations of hiring managers.A few key chapters cover:
1. Creating Your Personal Career Brand
Having a clearly defined professional career brand is no longer optional. Employers want to know what differentiates you from your job-seeking competitors, not how you’re the same. They want to see hard skills linked to your softer ones, indicating who you are, what you’re like to work with, and how your strengths will translate to dollars for them.
2. Effective Resumes & Career Document
Your professional resume needs to be a targeted, brand-reinforcing, career marketing communication. Supplementing your resume with a professional bio, a compilation paper, and digital documents is key to success in job search today.
3. Job Search by Social Media Strategies
A strong social media presence is also essential when in job search mode. You may not feel comfortable putting yourself out there, but without an online identity, you may be completely invisible to recruiters and other hiring managers who source and assess candidates by what they find about them online. You need to transform your portfolio of career documents into a LinkedIn profile that’s a magnet for recruiters and hiring decision makers. But LinkedIn is just one critical component in building an online presence and leveraging social media.
At the end of reading Win Interviews!, you will be able to create your personalized new game plan with the latest job search information, tools, forms, samples, and strategies you need to win the interview and land the job you want.
You will have learned how job search doesn’t have to be hard, and you will be steps ahead of your competition with your new must-have game plan!
