Do you know someone on the inside who can introduce you to the new employer of your choice? If so, congratulations! You are ahead of your competition! We all agree that a personal introduction is the BEST way for you to move forward in the hiring process. If you don’t have that personal connection, your mission is to put a strategy in place that includes making a personal connection with someone who can help you, AND you’re going to need other weapons in your arsenal.
Securing new employment could be one of the most difficult jobs you have undertaken. The road is fraught with frequent rejections, or worse yet, no responses at all from employers you’ve applied to!
Facing frequent rejection and/or the “black hole” of unanswered, on-line applications can discourage even the strongest of us! Worse yet, our negative emotions in light of rejection, could sabotage us in ways we don’t always recognize.
It’s often said that challenges are opportunities. It seems obvious, but it might help you to remember that, especially in a recovering economy:

from your initial approach to an employer, to optimizing keywords in your resume, to anticipating what an employer will see when they “Google” you, to handling yourself well in an interview, to effective followup with an employer.
Our mission is to help you to be strategic and competitive pursuing employment so that you successfully move forward in the hiring process.
Our relationship with you begins with a conversation about who you are and where you want to go professionally. Once you’ve established a target and approach your search from a healthy competitive standpoint,
You’ll move from defense to offense.
