Finding the right job search help can feel overwhelming. There are so many sources of job search information on the internet, it’s difficult to know which is credible and appropriate for your situation.
The worst thing you can do is try and figure out job search on your own. And let me warn you, a siloed job search will take you a very long time.
You are not going to find a job hiding out in your home.
You need to collaborate to find solutions for your specific situations like finding new ways to contact people when they don’t follow through, evaluate your interviewing skills, negotiate a job offer and so many other scenarios.
This week, I’m sharing help for career changers, people looking for remote work, and job seekers who are just looking for new ways of doing things!
I hope you find something that will up-level your approach and deliver the right job search help you want and need.
