Myth Buster: This IS  a great time of the year to land a job (plus a special incentive)

Contrary to popular belief, the 4th quarter is actually one of the best times of the year to land a job. I am not referring to seasonal work (although that is true too). I am referring to career positions.
Recruiters place as many, if not more, people in the 4th quarter than any other time of the year. And search firms or recruiters only account for 11% of how people find jobs; other approaches are even more successful. There are numerous factual reasons behind this timing phenomenon but that is for another article.

The point of this blog is to be sure you are not stepping back in your job search because of the misconception that the job market is slowing down. In fact you need to power up your search to take advantage of this great time of the year. You have to be prepared and as Coach Wooden said “When opportunity knocks, it’s too late to prepare”.
  •    Know the concise answer to how you are unique why they should hire you.
  •    Have ready to use over 70 specific stories (STARs) that illustrate your skills, abilities, and former accomplishments (past success is the best predictor of future success).
  •    Know and use your actual top strengths according to Strengths Finder (too many job seekers give the same answer as everyone else- I’m a people person, hard worker, quick study…)
  •    Know the job title you are pursuing and do not pursue more than 2 different roles (casting a wider net actually lessens your chance of success)
  •    Have a resume developed with a good format AND content based upon a broad selection of job postings for that type work. (90% of resumes do not make it passed keyword software)
  •    Know the right way to find jobs (85% are hidden, in other words not posted online)
  •   Stay active in your search (finding the job is your job so you should be active 40 hours a week)

It is hard to do the job search alone and many people do not know how to be productive and successful.
