Write Down Goals to Accelerate Your Career

Happy New Year!

Have you written down ten goals for 2013?  Written goals can often create new momentum behind your job search. Take time to determine what you want to accomplish in all areas that are important to you. Examples might include: Health, Career, Financial, Education, Spiritual, Philanthropic, Personal etc. After you write down your ten goals, under each goal write down 4 to 5 action items that will help you attain your goal. Finally, place a specific target date for completion next to each action item.

Too often, goals are set for the coming year and then stashed away never to be read again until the following December. This year follow the instructions above and post your goals where you can see them as you conduct your career search. When you realize you are conducting your search to help you attain your goals in the areas that are most important to you and the people you love, it puts a new found energy behind your efforts. If you don’t write your goals down, add dated action items and post your goals – they could become no more effective than New Year’s Resolutions that are typically broken before the middle of January.

MUST READ
Ask people in your targeted profession to share with you what publications or journals they read. Also ask them what Professional Associations they support. Many of the articles in these trade publications inform you who is hiring or expanding. Often job leads are hidden within the promotional announcements. The websites of Professional Associations are filled with valuable information that could enhance your job search. You can often attend a few meetings of these groups as a guest and often the other attendees can open doors for you to prospective employers. Over 50% of individuals finding jobs in the current job market are the result of networking – where someone makes a recommendation or introduction that opens a door! Never underestimate the value of reading and attending meetings where you can connect with people in your targeted field.

Is It Time To Do A Check Up From The Neck Up?

Get out there and escalate your search efforts during the Holidays

During our weekly job seeker live webinars, our trainer has picked up on some negative attitudes from some of the job seekers who are asking questions. Our fear is that potential employers might also pick up on these negative vibes and impact their decision to hire or not to hire. We understand this is a very difficult time of year to be unemployed. We understand that many of you are sick and tired of your family and friends asking you if you are still looking for a job. We understand how frustrating it is to be rejected and not receive a job offer. It’s easy to focus on what has and is going wrong with your job search.

However, it’s time to realize you have NO control over the job market, or the decisions made by hiring authorities.

You DO have 100% control over how you choose to react. (Click to Tweet This)

Their decisions can become learning experiences to improve your search efforts, or they can destroy you. The choice is yours to make.

Your attitude depends 10% of what happens to you and 90% on how you choose to react. Often the best decision is to refuse to react at all and just continue your efforts. The job seekers who are receiving job offers have just decided to get rejected more than you have! Each no and each experience with rejection puts you that much closer to getting a yes. Someone’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality. Get out there and escalate your search efforts during the Holidays.

When you meet people and they ask you about your job search, smile and tell them it’s been a real adventure being a free agent in the open job market. If you appear sad and depressed people will avoid making contact with you. Appear happy and approachable and then turn the attention to them and ask them about themselves. If you let someone talk about them self, they like you more and will be more apt to provide you with leads, referrals and networking possibilities. Make sure you take your resume cards with you to every event!

How You Think Can Sabotage Your Search

This is the perfect time of year to remember reasons to be grateful.

It’s often hard to remember your endless talents and skills, or even think about being grateful when you’ve been in a job search longer than you anticipated. It is easy to get down on yourself and often feel negative or depressed. If you allow these thoughts and feelings to affect your attitude it will sabotage your search.

Take time to think of a time when you felt the best about yourself. Remember the exact day, where you were and how you were feeling about yourself. This confident, happy person is the individual that needs to conduct your job search. You’re that same person just under different circumstances.

Take out a piece of paper and write down your talents, your personality traits, your accomplishments and every positive characteristic that describes you. Whenever rejection or disappointments get you down remember to pull out that list.

You are an extremely talented person who deserves to find an opportunity that represents your next logical career move. Never forget that fact as you progress on your job search journey!

How the Latest Health Care Innovations Will Change Who You Hire

 Your Next Superstar May Not Be From Health Care

While reading the article about the Health 2.0 showcase in Europe I was reminded of a conversation I had earlier in the day with a health information technology sales executive. She told me that the health information management solutions on the market today will be completely different in two years.  That will require new blood, new thinking, and a different kind of health technology sales executive.

The old saying “You can’t keep doing things the same way and expect a different result” comes to mind.  Just recycling the same sales people from competitors will only move a sales team further behind the curve.

“That will require new blood, new thinking, and a different kind of health technology sales executive.” (Click to Tweet this)

I am already seeing this in other areas of health care, especially in care management.  Movement away from traditional care models is creating a need for non-traditional skill sets.

Sales competency is and will continue to be important. Also important will be the ability to transcend traditional ways of thinking and selling.  Organizations will need to look outside of the health care for their next sales stars.
