At Career Resume Consulting, I see many professionals in a career search make certain assumptions about how to best go about actively searching for a new job. Many of these are just plain wrong.
So there are less than 5 months left in 2019... Think back to January of this year... Did you make a New Year's Resolution to find a new position with more responsibility, a better fit, and more money? Money isn't usually the first priority for our clientele, but it's one that we consistently are able to help with, when our clients find a position with a company that truly appreciates their talents.
Today, I would like to share with you something I tell every one of our clients when we work with them; it is imperative, if you are actually going to win the job -- especially if you are to get a job created for you -- that your next employer perceives you as not just a winning candidate, but actually an investment that will pay off big time.
Today I’d like to address a topic that everyone seeking a professional position knows they should be doing, but so few do it effectively: NETWORKING. Specifically, how to conduct an effective informational interview.
