Career Calling

Get Ready for the New Year Now

Somebody called today to ask about my services.  She said that she liked what she heard and that she would call me back sometime in January.  I asked her an important question: Why wait?  This is a great time to get ready for your job search and, better still, to get a head start on your competition.

If you wait three weeks to start your job search and then take another week to three weeks to finish your resume, you’ve just lost six weeks.  Even with the good job news that came out today (unemployment at its lowest rate in 5 years), there is no guarantee that your job search will be easy or simple.  In fact, I can almost guarantee that the opposite will be true even when you work hard and are consistent in your efforts.  With few exceptions, every job search is difficult.  Why wait to get started?
