This Is No Joke. You Could Lose Out Big Time In The Job Marketplace!

Aug 17, 2007
You're hired! In today's sophisticated job marketplace these are the words we're waiting to hear. But that's at the END of the job search process. How does it start?

If you don't understand how the job marketplace works you could lose big time. You cold lose a lot of time and money chasing the old-fashioned techniques for finding a job . . . you know, like flooding the market with your resume and waiting for the phone to ring.

And you could lose because when you take that kind of easy, automatic approach you also put yourself right in the middle of all the competition where your odds of being a finalist are slim. In other words, you're requiring an employer to evaluate you against potentially dozens of other candidates.

But, perhaps most importantly, you lose because you've turned over to someone else the decision about what's the best of all jobs ideally suited to your specific needs and expectations. You're expected to take whatever is offered without considering any alternatives.

Understanding where a hiring decision comes from is critical to your employment success. You see, the decision to bring you on board doesn't happen spontaneously. It evolves over a period of time. Here are the steps:

1. A need is identified within an organization.

2. That need evolves into a description of the job required to fill that need.

3. The qualifications of the person to fill that job emerge.

4. A job search is initiated.

5. Candidates are identified and reviewed.

6. A finalist is selected.

A traditional job candidate typically enters the process in Step 5 . . . after a job description has been firmed up . . . after the qualifications have been pre-determined. The problem is you are now just a resume -- one of the many being screened for consideration. So, you're up against lots of COMPETITION!

But what if you entered the process at Step 1 or Step 2? Now, you become part of the job creation process. You are bringing your expertise to the table in response to needs as they're being uncovered and discussed.

Getting you into the decision-making process before a job description is finalized . . . where you can help create your own job . . . where you can be part of the solution without any competition . . . that is what working the job marketplace on your own behalf all is about. That's how you avoid losing big time!

There are many proven alternative techniques and strategies available. They can help you intervene in the decision-making process at exactly the right point. And uncover a superior job and income opportunity in record time!
