Transcript

  • 1. Getting a better job is NOT only about finding a company that will increase your salary and give your better benefits.
  • 2. Your quest for a better job must begin with a PLAN.
  • 3. Your plan should INCLUDE working with recruiters who can enhance your financial industry career.
  • 4. Your plan should also include an EVALUATION of your job search to make sure it is truly effective.
  • 5. FOLLOW each of the steps below to give yourself the best possible chance of climbing the corporate ladder.
  • 6. Step #1 Do Not Be Afraid Of "Entry Level" Jobs
  • 7. Entry level jobs are all DIFFERENT.
  • 8. There are companies where workers who take entry level jobs have little chance of advancing.
  • 9. However, there are other companies where even the highest executives had to start in the mailroom or distribution warehouse.
  • 10. If you find a job that seems better than the one you currently have…
  • 11. … you should give it careful consideration before writing it off or assuming it is not worth your time.
  • 12. Step #2 Edit Your Resume
  • 13. Searching for jobs requires an UPDATED resume.
  • 14. You will have much better luck searching for a job when you keep your resume CURRENT.
  • 15. Reading up on what HR managers wants to see will help you to construct a resume that is current to your industry.
  • 16. If you have not updated your resume, hiring managers can tell.
  • 17. Step #3 Do Not Get Wrapped Up In Salary
  • 18. There are times when you MUST take a job that does not pay your dream salary because the job gives you the future opportunity to make your dream salary.
  • 19. A job that amounts to a lateral move could give you a better chance of advancement.
  • 20. Also, you may find that there are more supportive people above you at a new company.
  • 21. Step #4 Do Not Make Benefits A Dealbreaker
  • 22. Every company on the planet has made CHANGES to their insurance and benefits programs.
  • 23. If the benefits at a new company are comparable to your current benefits, you should still consider the job.
  • 24. In the future, the economy will improve and benefits packages will likely IMPROVE across the board.
  • 25. Step #5 Go Where The Customers Are
  • 26. You could take a job in a SMALLER TOWN where the company has a practical monopoly on the community …
  • 27. … or you could move to a large city where your new company is filling a void in the market.
  • 28. No matter what you do, you must go WHERE THE CUSTOMERS are so that your new employer can survive.
  • 29. Getting a better financial job requires that you FOLLOW each of the steps above.
