Focus On What You Can Control

Can you control when a company puts out an ad for an open position? You can only control how you respond to the open position. In life & your career, there are some factors that are out of your control, so don’t concentrate on that. Focus on how you represent yourself in-person and on paper with your #careertools, to get the best possible results.

If you’re not sure if your career tools like your #resumes #coverletters or #lettersofrecommendation represent you well…check out my resource here to make sure tools are working for you in the #jobmarket.

If you’re still experiencing some delayed growth, wrapped up in difficult circumstances, then you’re not alone.

Applying for jobs online can be a pain…

.

I can certainly understand exactly the level of frustration in that statement and the tedious task of applying for jobs online these days. Trust me, I understand and want to give a few tips and tricks to make this process as painless as possible.

Please understand that most employers are using applicant tracking systems (ATS) to process their applications and cutting down on the amount of candidates who will get to the interview process. It helps to have the right career tools, such as your resume, cover letter and letters of recommendations already prepared to help you move the application process along.

If you do not have any of these career tools or need help with getting them completed, please check out this resource to get your career tools completed, so you can get more efficient with your job application processes online. If you do have your career tools completed, then use it in the following ways.

-Save the full resume in Notepad version

-Upload this version of your resume to the ATS for the jobs you are applying for

-Create a different resume for every industry you have more than one year experience working

If you struggle with getting your career tools (your resume) to get you the desired result (a callback from an employer with an interview), then check out check out my other resource where you can have your career tools reviewed and updated, so they can produce the desired results.

Looking for a Career change?

The only person who knows what you want in your career is YOU. If you want to make changes in your life, including your career, you must have a concrete understanding of where you are right now. In this video, I have also discussed four ways to get from where you are to where you want to be, in your career.

Here are the four methods listed below to achieving a successful career change:

1. What can you do or skills you have now that people are willing to pay for?
What unique skills edge and qualifications to you possess? To help you gather this self-inventory, you can download my FREE DREAM Career Guide by going here.

2. What do you know (specific subject matter) that the marketplace find very valuable?
In recent years, the rise of the social media managers and content blog writers became increasingly valuable with the rapidly growing industry of content creators of videos, podcasts, blogs, self-published authors. The business and technologically advanced climate now brings tremendous value to those industries. So, keep this example in mind when you are thinking and writing your response to this question.

3. Write down the responses to questions 1 & 2? Write at least 5 responses to each one. (Just do it!)

4. Use the info you wrote down in question 3 to formulate a new “career change” resume.
If you are looking for additional help with formulating your new resume from the information you gathered in Steps 1-3, then check out my other resource here where we can work together on your new resume to get your new career venture started.
