Your Essential Steps To Successful Job Seeking

December 24, 2007

My weekend was extremely fulfilling. I was conducting the 2-day workshop on “Life Empowerment Skills” for the Jobseekers. Although it was Saturday and Sunday, I must say that we brought the excitement level to an all new high. It definitely made the training very purposeful and meaningful. Best wishes to all the participants!

As I reflect back on the sessions, I recall why I am a public speaker and trainer in the first place (years ago). The satisfaction and sense of fulfillment were beyond mere words. It had to be experienced by you. The lives you touch and you change can leave a lasting impact. In a simple yet unique manner, people are influenced for the better, inspired to dream dreams bigger and excel to reach the higher.

Here’s a quick summary of what you can do to get the job:

1. Run through the essential steps of the job seeking process. Keep the different purposes of each step in mind.

2. Review through your documents to improve them. Remember you have to write them in the unique ways in order to get results.

3. Remember what type of people employers look for. Keep them in mind when you prepare your documents and attend the interview. Be the one they want.

4. Stay on the positive. Overcome any negative inner voice.

5. Get a mentor or consultant to regularly guide you. Meet up with him or her to go through the steps, refine them and update on your progress.

6. Form the net work and work the network. Those that keep you motivated.

7. Plan your life plan. And exercise it!

It’s Christmas Eve as I write this. Thank you very much for your birthday wishes and gifts over these few days. I certainly am looking forward to celebrating my birthday tomorrow. I heard that more surprises are in store. Haha!~

Merry Christmas to you!
