Ripped From The Headlines Finding A Job Just Got Easier

If you've recently decided to look for a new job, there's a lot of good news. News media all over the country are touting job growth. Finding a job just got a lot easier . . .

if you're willing to follow the new rules! The downside is that you can't conduct finding a job the old-fashioned way. For example, you can't make it in today's sophisticated job marketplace if you plan to rely on your resume to get you a job. The reason is very simple: employers don't want to hear about what you used to do for someone else. Employers' expectations have changed a lot in the 21st Century. They want to talk to someone who has done their homework . .

. who's taken the time to learn about the needs of the organization and its managers. Resumes don't do that.

So what can you do? First, prepare yourself. Identify all the skills, assets, and capabilities you possess--both in and out of your jobs. You have to be very clear what you bring to the table that will attract attention to a decision-maker. He/she must be able to see you as a successful member of the organization's team. It's up to you to single out only those qualifications that fit each situation and then present them assertively. Secondly, use all resources available to you to select organizations and specific decision-makers where there's a match between your capabilities and their needs.

Pinpointing who you want to go to work for is a critical piece of finding a job successfully. At this point most job-seekers counter, "But what if there are no job openings?" You know, this is probably the single biggest mistake you can make for finding a job. The vast majority of job offers in the U.

S. are not initiated through known job openings. In fact, many of the best jobs are created, not filled. This is much more consistent with the expectations of employers who are not looking for someone who fits into a predetermined mold. They're looking for bright, fresh ideas. And they're willing to create a job around the person who can come forward with them.

In other words, the better prepared you are the more likely you will get a interested audience. And will move the odds of finding a job dramatically in your favor. You need a 21st Century concept takes a realistic look at how hiring decisions are made.

One that formulates strategies showing step-by-step ways to get in front of selected decision-makers and conduct a productive dialog. One that plays by the new rules. It's no longer good enough to hope things will work out for you. .

. unless you're content to sit around and wait weeks and months for something to materialize. If you follow the new rules, the headlines are right. And there's a terrific job just waiting for you!.
