From day one of kindergarten, we’re handed a crayon and instructed to color inside the lines.
We quickly believe success comes from the following formula: Follow
the crowd, get good grades, and become successful. As we grow older,
a solid resume, good references, and charisma are added to the “secret ingredients”
But Something went wrong.
After graduating from college, Rachel entered the “real world” only to realize
her Banana Republic blazer, entry-level resume, and liberal arts degree weren’t
enough leverage to instantly land her dream job. She could color very neatly
inside the corporate lines, but HR recruiters and hiring directors were looking
for more. Many smart, talented, and charming people will be overlooked as the
position is handed to one individual.
There is good news!
Finding a job doesn’t have to take the form of “resume roulet” requiring you
to blindly send out resumes and hope for the best. There is something you can
do to make
yourself hirable. You should become the person
you would want to hire.
As Rachel learned during the “Great job search of ’08,” a power suit, decent
resume, and good grades aren’t enough to land a job. Rather, it’s vital to develop
habits that make you not only hireable, but in high
demand as an employee.
To help you with that, we’ve published a new free ebook: Standing Out In An Overcrowded Job Market: How to Become the Person You’d Hire
In the ebook, Tim Baker explores the qualities a potential employer is looking for in a job candidate. To hone the skills they won’t tell you about in any classroom, download the ebook, and become hirable!
