Here are three truths about your job search.
One of the most common telephone calls recruiters receive sounds like this: “Hello, I need you to find me a job!” The caller’s tone is frantic and panicked. They do not know how the recruitment process works.
Here are three critical truths about your job search.
- You are responsible for marketing yourself. This is a big part of the problem. People do not like to make cold calls, and they are uncomfortable promoting themselves, but you cannot avoid this. If you depend on a recruiter, you will be exposed to about 30 percent of the available jobs.
- The employment process will not move as fast as you want. Always have multiple job opportunities moving forward simultaneously.
- If you work hard, you WILL succeed. From cold calling, using social media to expand your network, and mastering the art of appropriate self-promotion, you must do these things.
