So What Will You Do Differently in Your Search TODAY?

You are looking for a job. It is hard; finding a job is hard. The job market is tough. You have worked hard at it. You have applied to what seems like thousands of jobs and not landed one yet. If you are a Boomer, you wonder if it is your age. If you are a recent graduate, you wonder if it is your lack of experience – but then how do you get experience without a job? You start to doubt yourself and wonder if it is you.

It is hard! But think about what Einstein said “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Now that you agree that what you have been doing isn’t working, what will you do differently TODAY? 

Many job seekers don’t even know where to start to get objective and professional feedback on their marketing materials, their job search approach, or their interpersonal skills (which makes up 50% of what companies are looking for).



Here are some questions to ask and articles that will help you but only if you implement the changes NOW:


  1. If you have “references available upon request” on your resume, if you start out with an objective statement that says what YOU want, or if you updated your resume without looking at what companies are looking for, and if your bullets are job description then you need help.
