Change Is the Only Constant

Perhaps you already have a job, but you are not happy in your current position; you might want a promotion, be out of work, or have just graduated. Further, you may not yet know what job you can do, what career will make you happy, or how you want to pivot your career. There is an infinite number of reasons why you might look for something new, but to make a career change, you need to get hired. At some point in everyone’s career, they will need to change jobs, careers, or both. Even the CEO of a company will eventually need to find another position, maybe a board position, or become a CEO at a different company. Nothing lasts forever, and you need to prepare for the change.There is, and will continue to be, enormous competition for jobs at all levels. You are not alone.

You Must Stand Out!

There are millions of people in your position searching for a job, and millions of jobs available. Yet, there are still hundreds of thousands of open opportunities that go unfilled. Well-qualified individuals are unable to secure a job. Many people won’t even get a response to an application or a simple screening interview. Why? Because, they lack focus, are not prepared, and not going about their job search campaign in the best way. They don’t stand out from the crowd, and to be successful, you must stand out!Your challenge is to compete and win.

I created the Getting Hired Program to help my clients stand above their competition. The Program helps them be more confident by showing them how to conduct thorough research and job search preparation. There are generally two ways of finding a job: networking or applying to a job posting. The Getting Hired Program is a step-by-step guide to successfully managing careers using both approaches. Adequate preparation demonstrates to any employer that the candidate cared enough to do their homework.

The rest of the decision comes down to personality. Well-prepared candidates will compete, win and get hired.
