Having to look for a job sucks. It's painful, time consuming, you may be able to sell services or products, but having to sell yourself is humbling, and sometimes frustrating - because you don't know how wonderful you are! I've heard every excuse from 'well, you know, I'm 'old', so they won't hire me...' to '...I keep getting calls from recruiters and interviews, but then I never hear from them again...' You are selling a solution to a problem the company needs to fix. You might be getting in the door to the first interview, but if you are focused on asking them what they can do for you, and not really getting to the problem of what they need fixing, then you will not get that job. What I have found in 22 years of human resources, recruiting, and business ownership - many companies don't know what they are looking for, and the candidates don't know what to ask for. This compendium of my blogs and newspaper 'ask-the-expert' columns will help the job seeker learn more about the job market and how to really search for and get that 'dream job.'
Imagine, if you can, the seven most important factors that affect the average American family, in their struggle for the coveted American Dream. Yet, we have grown complacent and accepted what our government and politicians are doing to us, which prevent that achievement. We complain about what is happening, but take no positive action to correct the negatives that affect our families and our future generations. Enough is enough! It is time to make the necessary changes in our lives, be vigilant of OUR elected representatives in Washington and get involved in the system to make positive changes. We should organize without violence and use the most powerful weapon that we have, which is our vote to put a stop to the deterioration of our nation. There is still time to salvage the future of our children and all future generations without allowing politicians to self destruct our Republic. We should go back to basics and follow the constitution and the principles of our Founding Fathers.
