Building structure in and around your job search is a major challenge for most job seekers, especially if you are employed and looking. The bigger challenge is holding yourself accountable to do what you know you should do, yet find difficult to do. Whether you’ve gotten the name of someone to call or whether you are following up after you’ve sent your resume, these activities tend to make us feel uncomfortable, maybe even vulnerable. We may face rejection. This underlying fear often prevents us from doing what we need to do (I face this fear as well!)
I was lucky enough to work with Carol White Llewellyn on this video project, Employment INsights, as a way of getting information into the hands of more job seekers. This episode features Kathleen Pringle of Predictive Insights and Lynn Dessert of Leadership Breakthrough. These women work with individuals to arm them with the tools, resources and focus to drive their careers forward.
I hope you can take a way a gem or two to help you focus and manage your search.
