In the Current Job Market, You MUST Compete!

by Susan Reynolds

Because of recent dynamics in the credit industry, there’s more than just a big inventory of houses on the market! There’s an extraordinary inventory of professionals searching for careers that will support them “in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed”! If it’s time for YOU to step into the career marketplace, get ready to compete. You simply must assume that there are many excellent professionals vying for opportunities right along side of you. These qualified and capable people’s resumes are in the stack on top and underneath yours. What will make you prevail?

Proactive, assertive job search strategies! Don’t stand back. Don’t wait. Step up and step out into the marketplace. Be ready to stack your credentials against those of others. Be ready to clarify your capabilities and experience. Take care to identify the contributions you can make. Don’t just let your target companies read your resume and form their own conclusions. Directly draw their attention to the resource you can be for their organization and the contributions you can make. Will you save them money? Will you increase their revenue? Will you bring their processes and systems to a new level of productivity? Will you motivate and lead their teams to improved success? Then be ready to sell your skills differently and better than your job search competitors. Chances are, they’ll be struggling to be prepared also, so take advantage of the opportunity to shine. It all comes down to whoever can market themselves most effectively!
