Do The Work: Jobseeker Edition

I’m the career expert. You want me to tell you the answer.

You want the one hack that will lead to a successful career.

But that’s not how it works. Instead…

There is no substitute for hard work and patience. There is no magic.

I can help. I can give you tools and direction.

But you have to do the work.

If you are actively seeking new employment or even a career change, procrastination is not your friend.

It has even been called “opportunity’s assassin.”

Make a plan and stick to it. Start by defining what you want and how to go about getting it.

Then get to work making your plan into reality.

Network by joining local groups, attend job fairs and workshops, and connect online.

Spend time crafting your various career documents (resumes, profiles, letters, portfolios) so that you have something targeted and dynamic to show off your abilities and accomplishments.

Actively follow your target companies on social media.

Try to connect with some employees personally so that you can tap that hidden job market.

Job hunting is work. Do the work.
