    • If I can show my talents, employers will put me in the right opportunity.
    • I must develop the perfect resume.
    • A successful interview is all about chemistry.
    • Most jobs are in print or on the web—80/20
    • There’s a “best” job out there for me—if I don’t find it I’ll be unhappy.
  • 18. Career Change
    • “ Our working identity is not a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered at the very core of our inner being. Rather, it is made up of many possibilities: some tangible and concrete, defined by the things we do, the company we keep, and the stories we tell about our work and lives.”
    • Working Identity
    • Herminia Ibarra
  • 19. No Hard and Fast Rules (1987) Jack Falvey
    • No rules—right, wrong
    • Too many variables for a prescription
    • Get yourself in front of people
    • Keep yourself alive in a network of 10-20
    • Lightning—in the rain, damp and cold
  • 20. Net- “Working”
    • Not schmoozing.
    • Start simple and familiar…curiosity through good questions, sincerity—and eventually value you add.
    • Become a colleague. Information turns to recruitment. What Color Is Your Parachute? Hidden Job Market
    • Technology (Linked-in, Facebook, Twitter) and Face to Face
    • Asking the right question. Saying the right thing. At the right time. To the right person….to create INTEREST and POSITIVE IMPRESSION.
  • 21. Value of Research and Networking
    • “ Intense introspection poses the danger that a potential career planner will get stuck in the realm of daydreams.”
    • “ We learn who we have been and who we might become –--in practice, not in theory—by testing fantasy and reality, through exploration and examination, not just by looking inside.”
    • - Herminia Ibarra
  • 22.  
  • 23. Have faith…
    • “If you’re in transition and you happen to have an old faith hanging in the closet of your heart, it’s probably a good time to bring it out and dust it off.”
    • - Dick Bolles
  • 24. Faith is a process…
    • “Jesus said to the father that all things are possible for those who believe.
    • And the father said, “Lord, I believe..please help me with my unbelief.”
    • - Mark 9: 15-29
  • 25. Finding a Job; Finding Faith
    • “……he surrendered himself to the slow heart work of seeking God one day at a time and one night at a time in the place where his eyes opened and shut…he got up and fell down, he got up and fell down, he got up over and over again.”
    • Patrick Hart, Jonathon Montaldo
    • The Intimate Merton
