How to Win the Game of Finding a New Job Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Your New World Of Career Choices How To Win At The Game Of Finding A New “Job” ©Copyright 2011 – Paul Kaliher, SMS Design, Inc.
  • 2. What’s It All About Alfie?
    • How to get the right start to this new phase of your life
    • Your career choices, along with their advantages and disadvantages
    • Consider the option of starting your own part time or full time business
    • The steps necessary for success in winning the “find a new job” game, or the “start your own business” game
  • 3. Now is the time to reevaluate what you want to do with the rest of your life
    • Identify your Core Desires
      • (What do you really want?)
    • Identify your strengths
      • (What are you really good at?)
    • Move forward decisively
      • (Take massive action in the right direction)
    Getting a good start
  • 4. What Are Your Options:
    • Find a new job similar to your old job
    • Find a new job that is very different than your old job
    • Buy a new job
      • Buy a franchise
      • Buy some other business
    • Start your own business
    • Retire or work part time if you can afford it
    Your Career Choices
  • 5. One Option To Always Consider
    • My personal opinion: At least half of all job seekers should be starting and building their own business (yes…you too), even when they get a new job (start a business part time on the side)
    • But, don’t “jump off a cliff” and abandon your job search efforts to start your business. You probably need income right now, and you may not get enough income fast enough with any new business of your own.
    • More about this later
    Your Career Choices
  • 6. Next, Let’s Look At Each Of Your Options Separately:
    • Find a new job similar to your old job
    • Find a new job that is very different than your old job
    • Buy a new job
      • Buy a franchise
      • Buy some other business
    • Start your own business
    • Retire or work part time if you can afford it
    Your Career Choices
  • 7. Find a new job similar to your old job
    • May be the fastest way to a new job
    • You will need:
      • A great resume with specific quantifiable results from your previous job(s)
      • Good cover letters
      • Active networking
      • Active use of all other job seeking tools
      • Targeted mailing campaign
      • Getting past the gatekeepers
      • Good interviewing skills
    Your Career Choices
  • 8. Find a new job similar to your old job
    • Advantages
      • Least resistance from inside yourself and from the world
      • Easier transition from old job to new job
      • May be the fastest way to a new job
    • Disadvantages
      • You’ll still be “working for the man”
      • You may be jumping into another job that you won’t like any better than your last job (that’s OK if you really liked your old job)
      • You could be laid off or fired again tomorrow
      • It takes just as much effort as starting some businesses for yourself
    Your Career Choices
  • 9. Find a new job that is very different from your old job
    • Try this if you hated your old job. If you loved your previous job, and you did it well, don’t necessarily try this approach.
    • You will need:
      • A in-depth reevaluation of what you want to do and what you are good at
      • A restructured resume that focuses on skills, experience and quantifiable results in the new area you want to get a job in
      • Perhaps a “position proposal” that includes a description of the job you really want, and a proposal that you be the one to fill that job
      • Everything else listed on the previous slide
