In the midst of a job search? Here are five recently published job search advice articles you need to read. These articles have been published on LinkedIn over the past week and include some very compelling and profound advice that I think you’ll find really inspiring and useful as you conduct your job search.
How to Get the Job When You Don’t Have Connections. I think this article really hits home for job seekers who are just starting to build their network or really don’t have the connections they think they should. This advice goes along with what I’ve long been preaching about—informational interviewing.
The Power of Self-Discovery in the Job Search. I just want to say this about that … I can’t tell you how many clients I speak to on a daily basis that tell me “I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.” I don’t think anyone should condemn themselves no matter what age they are because they don’t know what they want to do next. I do, however, think it’s important to have an end goal in mind before you actively start job searching. Unfortunately, an aimless job search will be futile in the current job market.
Don’t Be a Copy-and-Paste Candidate. Words of truth and wisdom that we pass on to our clients every single day.
The Lies Employers and Recruiters Tell You. Isn’t it sad that there even has to be an article like this for job seekers to read? Not that the article itself is flawed … I just mean the situation—and that some employers/recruiters say these things. I can see how frustrating it can be for job seekers.
6 Executive Job Search Strategies That Work. Solid advice for executives starting a job search. The advice in this article is also applicable to professional/mid-career job seekers; just use the tips and make them applicable to you.
Bonus article: I posted this article on cold calling your way to a new job about a month ago, and I still receive feedback about how helpful it was to job seekers—and how they used this very method to find their current position. It’s worth taking a second look if you’re in the middle of a job search and you aren’t tapping into the hidden job market. Check out Cold Calling Your Way to a New Job.
Since we all know networking is a vital component to your job search, why don’t we connect on LinkedIn? You can send me an invitation here.
