  • Next we are going to talk about developing your very own personal marketing plan. Whether you like it or not, we are each a “product” that we sell to the potential employers that we have targeted to work at. In marketing, you cannot effectively sell any product unless you have a plan and know as much about that product (its benefits, features, and attributes) as you possibly can. You must develop your very own marketing plan for the product called “YOU”. Start by writing down the industries that you want to work in most. Limit to no more than 3 to 4 at first. Then, find out which companies you would would most want to work for in each of those industries (limit your search to 7 or 8 organizations in each industry, for starters). That will give you a short list of 21-24 firms to aggressively target. On your marketing plan, you will need to list your core competencies (things like experience working with certain software packages, spreadsheets, html coding, foreign languages, etc. These core competencies are your very own product benefits, the things that most clearly set you apart from other job seekers. Lastly define any and all possible job titles that might describe the work that you want to do (ex. Sales prep, sales associate, account rep, account executive, customer service rep.)

  • One of the things that is most striking about the NACE research findings are the skills that employers identified as lacking in today’s graduates. This is extremely key, because these are the objections that you may encounter this year and you will need to be prepared to address these objections in selling your students to the types of employers that NACE surveyed.

The Chazin GroupThe Chazin Group “Taxes have risen; our ability to pay has fallen; government of all kinds is faced by serious curtailment of income; the savings of many years in thousands of families are gone. More important, a host of unemployed citizens face the grim problem of existence, and an equally great number toil with little return. Only a foolish optimist can deny the dark realities of the moment.” “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort. The joy and moral stimulation of work no longer must be forgotten in the mad chase of…profits. These dark days will be worth all they cost us if they teach us that our true destiny is not to be ministered unto but to minister to Ourselves and to our fellow men.” “Our greatest primary task is to put people to work. This is no unsolvable problem if we face it wisely and courageously.” A Little Perspective on Today…
