Are you job searching and shouting:
“Please help me! I need a job. Any job.” Then are you wondering why you are still job searching? It might be because of what I call the “not-so-big-secret-to-finding work”. This big secret is: focus.
The definition of focus in a job search is: set specific goals, know where you are going and choose your targets. Using the power of focus is switching from the passive approach of only applying to job postings, to the proactive method of targeting companies you want to join. Even if you are searching for what you consider to be a survival job, having a focus is important.
Try utilizing your people network, use LinkedIn and increase your alliances. Eventually, instead of looking for any job, you could be confidently saying to others: “Could you please help me? I am looking for work as a front-line customer service rep in a downtown Toronto Call Centre easily accessible on the transit line”.
By knowing exactly where you are going, the not-so-big-secret-to-finding-work might be the right secret for you!
