As I talk to executives and managers across the country, I am struck by how many live in hope for the good old days of looking for a job. People know that the rules have changed. They just don’t want to deal with it. They do not want:
- To customize their resume for each job
- To be more aggressive with social media, primarily LinkedIn
- To learn how to use storytelling to enhance their performance in critical job interviews
They are uncomfortable and unwilling to seize the new day. If you are in that group, no need to raise your hand, just resolve not to waste your great talent because you cannot or will not adapt. Do not allow yourself to end up in a less than a satisfying job or, worse, on the sidelines.
