What’s the biggest mistake you’re likely to make during job search?
If you’re like most people in the process of self-marketing yourself to prospective employers and recruiters, you think a lot about the content of your presentation:
- how you talk
- what you say
- what your resume looks like
- how your personal brand looks online
And so on.
Give Yourself An Edge.
However, most job-seekers make the mistake of spending all their time polishing their marketing content (I use the word “marketing” here intentionally, because job search efforts are just that – you positioning yourself in the market and approaching people with intent of selling your services).
In doing so, they completely neglect the CONTEXT of their job search.
The context, or the lens through which you view your employment, will set the framework that will determine the:
- quality of relationships you’ll be able to build
- amount of value you’ll be able to deliver
- amount of attention your application will receive
- freedom, ease and confidence you’ll experience in your conversations
