If you do not map out a job search strategy plan, your best intentions can fail you miserably.
In my world, the summer is just getting started – nice fantasy, right? You see, I have been working so hard since June that I was really puzzled when everyone around kept talking about the end of summer. So I will hold onto my own version of summer in my mind…sigh.
Well, ideas are great, visions are inspiring, but without goals and a strategy for success, we can all remain like me…in Wonderland. However, when you are engaged in a serious job search, it takes more than visions to make the outcome a success.
Does your idea of a good job search mean trying every strategy and tactic available to you?
Are you finding that some job search strategies are just not working?
Has your enthusiasm for finding a new executive job waned over time?
No surprise here. If you did not map out a job search strategy plan, your best intentions can fail you miserably. So what are some things you consider before developing your job search strategy plan?
What is your job target or ideal new leadership position?
Are you seeking a career advancement, lateral or bridge job opportunity?
What kind of companies are you interested in?
Where do you want to work in terms of geographic location? Would you consider working overseas?
