If you’re about to start job-hunting, or fear you will be soon, you may not be aware of how different job search is today than even a few years ago.
If you’re already mired in a job search, you probably know that things have changed drastically since the last time you were in a career transition.
These days the game plan looks and feels completely different, and no one told you about it. You don’t know what you need to do to get a handle on and accelerate your search – what to do first, what not to do, who to turn to for help, how to best invest your time and funds.
You need to change your thinking and the way you approach career management in the digital world, whether or not a career transition is in your immediate future. And you need to dive in right now.
I’ve pulled together the best blog posts I’ve written on the “new world of job search” strategies you need to incorporate into your search campaign, if you want to land faster, in the job you deserve:
Get clear on what kind of job you want, who your target employers are, what their needs are, how you can help them and who their key hiring decision makers are.
Define your executive brand and differentiate your unique ROI value from your competition.
Get your resume, bio and other career marketing materials together.
Move your brand communications plan online with LinkedIn and other social media.
Put your online and offline career marketing materials to work in your networking efforts.
Prepare to excel in job interviews.
