If you want to find a job FASTER and get the BEST results out of it, put a bit of elbow grease into it.
Below are the skills I want to teach you for job hunting:
Technology (just tiny bit of knowledge), Finance (basic math), and Research (lots of this) - to Look for Jobs and Search Engine Optimize (SEO) and Quantify your Resume (see my other blogs on these topics).
Sales / Marketing (just a little bit) - to Pitch Yourself at your Interview (stay genuine though and have integrity)
Finance / Sales (again, just a little bit of each) - to Negotiate your Salary (never accept the first offer, unless it's got a lot of zeroes and you're getting the world's first laundry folder and put-away'er machine)
What is MOST important to you? Where are you in life?
Are you a recent grad who wants to just make money? Are you a mid level professional who wants to get into management or just make six figu
1) MONEY: If you had a title you didn't like and you were doing work you didn't enjoy, but you made a ton of money, would that make you happy? Let's say you were Tupperware Sales Agent who made $130K, at a company you didn't really like.
2) POWER: If you made little money and the work was meh, but your title was something you loved, would you be super stoked? Maybe a VP of a small startup where you sold paper and you made $20K.
3) TYPE OF WORK: If your title was bleh and you made little moola, but the work you did was very interesting, would you love it? Let's say you were Apprentice Frisbee Maker at a Plastic Factory that paid you like $8/hr, but you were learning all sorts of cool stuff and everyone there was super nice.
Job Hunting Process
the Job Posting - gives you the Answers for the Job Interview
your Resume gives the Employer the Evidence (Proof) that you meet the requirements of the Job Posting
the Job Interview is the Oral Exam, and it tells the employer if you qualify for the job; if you're a good fit for their company; and if you are who you say you are on your resume (very important)
the Job Offer is your Grade e.g., "Carter, we think you deserve a B+"
the Salary Negotiation is the Request for Re-Grade e.g., "Thank you so much, but I'm an A student, not a B+"
