For many episodes Angela and I have hosted The Job Search Boot Camp Show with special guests and career experts. Show statistics have shown that our Job Search Boot Camp “mini-edition” has pulled in the most listeners. When our guest this week had to cancel, we were able to get back to the basics in this fun and informative show!
The Job Search Boot Camp started as a half-day seminar where we taught people how to READY-AIM-GET HIRED! In this three step process we teach you the steps to get the job you want quicker and easier.
Listen to our mini-bootcamp show to get the time-tested techniques that really do work.
Always….ALWAYS have a backup plan. Whether you are looking for a new career, a new job, or you have a pretty good job right now. ALWAYS have a short-list of companies you’d be proud to work with. There will come a day when you decide to leave your company (or the company decides to leave you). It will be far easier to get a new job if you’ve been making contact with your target company.
Based on an exercise we use in the Career Change Pajama Learning, we suggest you create a “want/don’t want” list. This is a list of job aspects that you want, and those aspects that you don’t want. Making a list of those aspects that you want can guide you to careers that are in alignment with what makes you happy.
