Job Search Blues? You Need To Get Deprogrammed!


By:Paul Megan


Iíll bet I know exactly why you have job search blues.

Youíve spent a lot of time writing and rewriting your resume till you have it fine-tuned and ready for the job market. Then you distributed it to several job sites like Monster and HotJobs. You answered a bunch of job opening ads and mailed or emailed your resume directly some companies. You even contacted some agencies and recruiters. Maybe you went to a job fair.

The reason for the job search blues is that, after all the work youíve put into this campaign you still donít have anything to show for it.

Oh sure, you got some responses. Probably some TNT (thanks but no thanks) letters. Maybe some requests for additional information. Or an invitation to participate in a multi-level marketing scheme or two. You may have even been invited to come in for an interview or two where you answered all their questions and jumped through all their hoops.
But youíre weeks into your job campaign and you still donít have a job offer. Just some tantalizing possibilities. And you definitely have the job search blues.

Whoa! Stop everything! Itís time to get deprogrammed!

You see, the reason you have the job search blues is very simple. Youíre doing it all wrong! The approach youíre taking is the old-fashioned last century method when you could make the numbers work for you by mass distributing of your resume.

But itís a new century. Times have changed. And so have the expectations of employers.

Back then they used to rely on the information in your resume to make informed decisions about you. Not anymore. Todayís savvy employers are looking for a lot more than what you used to do for someone else. They expect you to come to the table ready to discuss how you can help them solve problems and advance their organization.

No one is going to hire you on the basis of your resume! I know thatís tough to swallow especially when youíve worked so hard to prepare it. The facts are an employer is going to hire you because he/she sees you as a productive member of the team.

So part of your deprogramming is to reverse the whole misinformed job search concept youíve been laboring under. Instead of starting with your resume, you start by identifying the employers youíd like to work for. Then you research them to discover what their needs and expectations are. And, finally, you take advantage of innovative alternative job search strategies to meet face-to-face with them without all the resume and interviewing hoopla.

How do you do that?

Fortunately thereís a remarkable system that can show you how to meet face-to-face with hiring decision-makers of your choice in a matter of days. And lock up a high-paying job in as little as two weeks. Now that should relieve your job search blues fast!
