Looking out for #1
Quick tip this week but it’s a good one. I get a lot of calls from people asking me to help them with their job search. I love it, always fun to help people find new gigs even if it’s not with my current employer (um Google that)......but I worry about something. I worry that people expect miracles from my advice and for magic job offers to arrive at the end of our conversation.
Um, not likely...
So, here is the tip. Only you can get your next job. There is no networking guru or silver bullet that your buddies can shoot and get you a job. You, and you alone have to find that great gig. People like me can help, give advice and make connections for you. But at the end of the day, it’s up to you to look out for #1 and convert those leads into jobs.
Got it? Great...now get networking and find a great gig
