Getting “the” Job, Not “a” job
Anyone can get a job, well almost anyone—we won’t mention that one roommate – but if someone ever paid for couch-warming and channel-surfing—they’d have a job, too.
The Good News! There are lots of jobs out there. The Bad News is that all jobs are not right for you. Sometimes we say, “The hardest job you will ever have is finding the right job.” The job search will test your self-knowledge, research skills, organization, persistence, and persuasion. Finding the job you want has to be a planned, systematic effort. Your career depends not just on knowing your qualifications, but how well you market them.
Let say that again—it’s essential, and we promised you the essential. Your career depends not only on your qualifications, but also on how well you market them.
