Job Search: The Only Thing You Need To Be Doing In 2018

 

SUMMARY

Do you know what the single most important thing to do is when you’re looking for a job in 2018?

Get a referral into the employer. “I know of no other practice that will get you more success than that. “You have to work 14 times as hard to get a job without one.”

Here’s The Thing:

  • If a company gets 100 responses to a job posting, 50% (or more) are generally not qualified.
  • Of the remaining applicants, only two will likely be referred in
  • Normally, an internal recruiter wants to present at least four or five suitable candidates to the hiring manager. As a result, qualified candidates with a referral get presented to hiring managers 100% of the time.

Or to put it more succinctly, 100% of qualified referrals are interviewed.

Boom! Spend your time getting referrals, not blindly applying.

Here are 3 Ways to Get Job Referrals

  1. As for the best way to get referrals into a company where you want to work. Search LinkedIn to find any contacts you have...

How To Get Employed Faster BLUEPRINT

Summary 

This blog is all about greatness. I created a Philosophy Of Greatness! And it goes like this:

You can’t be GREAT at work unless you first MASTER it. You can’t MASTER your work without LOVING what you do. And you can’t LOVE what you do unless you become GOOD at it. And you can’t be GOOD at work unless you LIKE it first and connect it to your STRENGTHS. And you can’t determine your STRENGTHS unless you do your work long enough to derive some enjoyment of doing it over and over again, (YOUR ONE THING). And you can’t do YOUR ONE THING, without first DISCOVERING YOUR VOCATION, (YOUR LIFE’S TASK).

How To Answer The Salary Question

3-PART VIDEO SERIES

Summary

In this blog, I will show you how to answer the interview question on "What is your salary expectation? 

There are things you need to know and do before you can answer this salary question. What you need to know is how much are you worth to the marketplace? It's all about value.

3 things you need to do to answer the salary question:

First thing - do your homework. Do an Online Search for the job title. You need to know what the job is paying according to the marketplace. Go to:

  • Salary.com & LinkedIn.com
  • Glassdoor.com
  • Salaryexpert.com/salarycalculator

Never go into a salary negotiation blind and unarmed w/o research

Second thing - Once you know your true worth/value, don't hold back when they ask you your salary expectation.

  • Give it to them. One number, not a range
  • Ask for more than you want
  • Never defer or deflect the salary question
  • Never leave the salary question blank on the application
  • Never put "open" in the...

5 Employment Trends You Need To Watch In 2018 And Beyond...

 

THE STATE OF EMPLOYMENT!

Just like the President gives us the “State Of The Union”, which describes our current situation here in the US. I’m doing the same thing, but I’m doing it for “The State Of Employment” for here in America.

We are currently in the midst of one of the longest economic expansions in history. The number of job seekers are down while companies are growing rapidly and eager to fill key roles.

From the Bureau Of Labor Statistics, our unemployment rate is at a rock-bottom low of 3.9%. The lowest in decades. We haven’t seen unemployment this low since the early 1990’s, with the dot-com boom.

Companies are in a crunch for talent. New hires are being paid on average 5% more than last year and salaries are at an all-time high, while also receiving aggressive bonuses and perks.

With the job market hotter than ever and those in search of a new adventure, now is the time to take the leap. Have you been paying attention?

How To Get Your Resume Past The Applicate Tracking System...

 

Summary

 

Landing an interview for a position in a giant organization can feel impossible if you don’t have any personal connections.

People often blame the sheer volume of resumes that are submitted—HR simply can’t review them all with enough detail to see what a perfect candidate you are!

And this is partially true.  Many resumes are trashed before they’re even seen by human eyes. How is that possible?

Here’s how: Many large organizations rely on Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to help pre-filter resumes. The systems work by scanning resumes for contextual keywords and key phrases, mathematically scoring them for relevance, and sending only the most qualified ones through for human review. 

In this video, I will give you 3 steps to get your resume past the ATS:

Step #1: Take The Overall Role Summary/Purpose Paragraph And Insert It Into Your Resume

Step #2: Match All Keywords And Buzz Phrases From The Job Announcement And...

Here is a Method That is Helping Career Professional Get Promoted Faster...

 

SUMMARY

Many people say reading is in decline. As an author and former Senior Manager, the statistics make me wince. But I’m optimistic for another reason.

Why? A readership crisis is really a leadership crisis. And for people who know how to respond, a crisis is just another way of saying opportunity.

In this blog, I will show you that you must become a reader. Because "Leaders Are Readers". I will show you that reading one non-fiction book every month will set you above all others in your career and life.

I’ve been a serious reader for decades: business and personal development, history, the Bible, current events, and even some fiction. I’m a content glutton. It’s part of who I am. And it’s also enabled me to become the leader I am.

I’m not alone. I know very few leaders who are uninterested in reading. And some CEOs are famous for their libraries and wide-ranging interests. Steve Jobs was, for one example.

Remember this: "A...

How To Get Employed Faster BLUEPRINT

SUMMARY

Companies are fighting for talent.

The Buyer's market is coming to a close. In a buyers' market, employers have the pick of the liter. There is more talent in the marketplace than jobs.

Employers would bring candidates back in for multiple interviews before making a decision.

Not Now! Employers don't have the time anymore.

We have switched to a "Sellers" driven marketplace. That's where there are more open positions than people looking for work.

How did this shift happen? It started with a low unemployment rate of somewhere around 3.9%. That's the lowest rate since the late 1990's. Because fewer people are looking for work, that's an opportunity for you.

Our federal government considers an unemployment rate of 4.6% to represent "full employment" for our nation.

When it's lower, anyone seeking work is assumed to be simply transitioning to a new job.

And that's exactly what is happening. Every...
