Why are we reluctant to ask for help when we lose a job?  Even when it means that not asking for help can prolong a job search? 

The reality is looking for a job is more complex today, from understanding AI technology that screens your resume to the challenge of customizing your resume with keywords and phrases for job-specific algorithms.

What are your thoughts on the matter?  I am interested in your feedback. Jot your ideas or even frustrations in the comments section. No one is going to call to sell you anything. Or email me, John@JohnGSelf.Com

As a business developer, I didn’t ask when I was in the job market because I did not want to feel uninformed or weak. Today, however, my thinking is propelled by the words of author and motivational speaker Les Paul who said,

“Ask for help not because you’re weak, but because you want to remain strong.”
