I’ve recently begun a new project: co-authoring a career handbook on how to land your dream job anywhere in the world. Expectedly, I’ve been doing a lot of research lately, as well as talking to a lot of people at network events, my own resume clients and striving hard to inject positivity into what many westerners consider to be a gloomy job market. While the gloominess does linger where the energy industry lays, there are indeed many good things happening in other industries (technology, agriculture, tourism and sports) all around us. It is my full belief that corrections are required and from these cyclical downturns we can only ever go back up again.
Today I happened upon this video that I would like to share with you. It is a video advertisement from a career coach who would like you to buy his module. I am by no means endorsing his business, and I don’t believe you need to watch much past five (of the eight) minutes of the entire video. Much of the content he speaks about mirrors topics in my new book and some of the my views, and those of my writing partner (who is a global networker and career placement expert) are not in accordance with his. The value, nonetheless, is how he encourages job seekers to think critically about how they project themselves to their market, and he highlights many of the ways that most job applicants fail:
His platform is Interview Success Formula, and I believe he may be American. His advertorial is a bit quirky with cartoon-like drawings, which is a nice change from watching a single person stand before you and preach. If anyone does decide to purchase the product for $97 (USD, I believe), I’d be curious to learn if it is helpful.
In the meantime, stay focused on what it is you need to advance through your current roadblocks, whether they are at the interview stage, the search itself, career coaching or the resume. It is my wish that you will find the ways to source the very best of tools that will in return surface the best in you from which will result your most exciting career stage imaginable!
Best in career successes,
