I recently received a comment message at our alternative job search website. It was from Todd, an assistant manager in a large retail operation. Todd said he had visited our site a couple times and now that he was seriously looking for a job he wanted the skinny on this "alternative job search" approach.
In further communication with him I learned that he was very frustrated with his job search efforts to date. Turns out he was conducting a classic traditional approach. He wrote a resume, posted it on some job sites like Monster and HotJobs.
He also told me he had answered a bunch of want ads and visited a couple employment agencies. He also sent his resume directly to dozens of other retailers in his area. It had taken him weeks to accomplish this much. Yet he had nothing to show for all his efforts except a few TNT (thanks but no thanks) letters. And a lot of discouragement and frustration. He wanted to know what we could do to help him.
I felt bad for Todd because he had been brainwashed by the "old-fashioned common wisdom" about how to find a job: write a resume . . .
get it out to as many resources as possible . . .
and wait for the phone to ring. If it doesn't then you repeat the process till it does. Back in the last century, in 1985, when our firm first went into business, this approach worked fine. We were very confident of getting our customers good job opportunities in a short time using these mass mailing strategies. But all that's changed now.
And those old-fashioned methods just don't work anymore . . . not, at least, if you're looking to make a move quickly and be in a position to select your next job rather than settle for it. It's why we pioneered alternative job search strategies and built them into a complete system. We discovered that if our customers mastered our simple, straightforward, step-by-step alternative job search system some amazing things would happen: 1.
They could virtually eliminate the resume and the competition. 2. They could be meeting face-to-face with their prospective next boss in a matter of days. 3.
They could be entertaining a good job offer in as little as two weeks. 4. They could negotiate superior compensation and benefits that could put them significantly ahead of what they were currently making.
5. And they could expect to consider multiple job offers so they could select the one that best fits their current needs and career advancement requirements. So, this is what's in it for you.
If you're serious about getting ahead in the job market . . . and you want to make your move in as little as two weeks . . .
