There are countless books that teach you how to interview effectively; but truth be known, it is far more important for you to learn how to audition than how to interview.
The word “interview” infers a series of questions and answers, yet the greatest mistake a job-seeking individual can make is to view an interview as a “fact finding mission.”
Whether the job market is strong or weak, there is always competition when seeking a new opportunity. The chapters in this book outline a step-by-step process that will show you how to outshine your competition, and help you secure the best job opportunity in your chosen field.
As a recruiting firm, one of the hardest realities of our profession is that we can’t find jobs for every individual we represent. The clients we represent look for a stable work history, specific skills and the exact experience they need. As a result, many very qualified individuals are not the “exact fit!”
The information and ideas you will find here have proven to work for the following job seekers:
* Individuals currently unemployed
* Individuals employed but looking for a better opportunity
* Individuals seeking a career change
Most individuals involved in a job search are not sales professionals, which is why the process is usually uncomfortable. A job search requires you to sell your experience and skills to a future employer, something completely unnatural for most.
If you are not currently employed, your full-time job is your job search. You need to spend 40 hours a week working on your search. If you are currently employed, but seeking a job change, you need to dedicate at least 10 hours every week to your search. You need to become proactive and make things happen versus being reactive and waiting for things to happen for you.
Whether you think you will succeed or whether you think you won’t succeed – you’re right! What you think actually becomes your reality. What your mind can conceive and believe, your body will achieve.
