The tip this week is one that I really, truly believe in. Paying it forward. If you don’t know what the phrase mean....check it here. Assuming you know what I mean, keep reading....
Maybe I’m a little crazy but I’m a believer in karma and good vibes when you’re in a job search. You know, the little things like a thank you note, being polite to the reception staff, being honest, etc etc. I think, those “little” things add up over time and make you a better candidate...and thus help you find a better job.
So...the tip....even when you are NOT in a job search...pay it forward. It’s not rocket science (none of my blogs are, I have a History degree after all....) but if you help those looking eventually I think it all comes around. So, next time someone connects via LinkedIn or asks you for a referral or comes out of left field to network over coffee.....take a minute and give them a little help. Not saying you have to go out of your way but just do something to help them in their search.....because really, in the end you never know when you’ll be the person asking for help and you’ll be happy other folks are willing to pay it forward for you.
Until next week....happy hunting and I owe you guys a big blog...I know!! Also, more Hangouts on Air next week via the Google+ channels so keep an eye out!
