In a job hunt, some experts say that connections are the most important influence in landing a job. Without a personal referral to pass your résumé along to a manager or who can put in a good word for you, your chances of landing a job are supposedly nonexistent. I disagree with this statement to a certain extent, I do feel it's helpful to know someone who can help you get through the door, but there are other ways of securing an interview or securing a role at a company. Not everyone knows someone employed at the company that their interested in, but it is possible to find some of the current employees on LinkedIn and ask if they could become a mentor to you and or provide a reference, they can communicate to the company that they believe in your professional abilities. #Truth #advice #Jobsearch #Networking #Connections
Funny thing, people tend to leave a couple of key factors out of the "who you know" equation. First off, the saying is wrong. Allow me to correct it. "Who you know" is not good enough. The true benchmark is "how they know you". what kind of worker do they consider you? It's not good enough for them to simply "like" you. Their placing their reputation on the line. I know some friends. that I wouldn't hire even if highly qualified. The final part is making that you're in position. You have to be ready with your credentials, skills, etc. in order.
In closing, it is my humble opinion picked up from years of experience that the key to success in just about everything is Position, Preparation, and Promptness.
Of course, a personal referral to pass your CV is a great idea, but I think think that it is more important to take care of the personal statement and make sure that it is free of mistakes. I prefer to ask experts from https://edubirdie.com/personal-statement-editing-service for help with editing. Once my personal statement along with my application will be on review by the recruiter or college teacher, I am sure that it will receive great feedback.
I'm telling you the truth...(Must Read w/o Fail.)
People think because they are "cleaning tables" in a restaurant, perhaps that's their flight in life. However, that's NOT true.
Believing in yourself, creates the change.
My Best Friend Forever (BFF) was washing dishes for a living and he said, "Man, I was washing more dishes in 30 days at a 5 - Star Restaurant, than 10 families could possibly wash in one year." "I was worn out."
"I woke up one morning and realized I could type about 125 wpm, so I applied for a job outside of my belief factor."
"No sooner than I submitted my poorly typed resume, which highlighted one significant skill-set...TYPING, I was offered a job, and started in less than two weeks as a Telecommunication Operator."
"My poorly rated salary tripled before I could blink my eyes, and I never looked back since."
Listen, if you can follow some simple and crucial principles or rules; and apply them to your life, your outcomes will never be the same.
By the way, my BFF or Best Friend Forever, happened to be Me..!
I Believe You Can..!
I'm telling you the truth...
We both have seen people getting jobs they are hired for, and NOT the jobs they strongly desire for. Does that sound familiar to you?
Don't miss my upcoming "Speak with a Purpose" where I articulate 5 - Crucial Steps towards "getting the job you want" instead of settling for work you REALLY don't want.
Listen, "Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. ~Helen Keller
Pay attention to these notes, and you won't have to look back in anguish.
