job

·       In the current economic climate, many people find themselves looking for a job.

·       You may be tempted to grab the first job offer that comes your direction, even if it does not line up well with your long-term aspirations.

·       I have personally found myself in this position, looking for any job that would pay more than I was currently making rather than looking for a meaningful position that would help me continue working toward my aspiration of managing large groups of people.

·       If you are currently unemployed, you are in a more vulnerable position, and it will be even more difficult to stay the course toward your long-term goals.

·       There are several problems with casting a wide net and taking whatever job you can get:

o   Your résumé and background will not support most of the positions you are applying for.

o   Your attitude toward your job search will be sour, and that attitude will come through in your interviews.

o   You will waste lots of valuable career time searching for and working in jobs that do not meet any of your career goals.

·       When looking for jobs, honestly ask yourself if landing a particular job would help you reach your long-term career goals.

·       If the answer is no, move on and try something else.

Guest Expert Michael D. Brown talks  about the combination of eight skills and attitudes crucial to creating your own personal brand :

·   Preparing yourself: continuing your education through classes, professional development, and maintaining an active intellectual interest and knowledge capital in your career and life

·   Aspiring to reach your goals: having particular ambitions and then setting out to achieve your goals – aim at nothing and you are guaranteed to hit it!

·   Staying laser-focused: intently focusing on each area of Fresh PASSION®, otherwise you’ll miss the mark and not deliver your brand

·   Selling your value: understanding your return on investment, having confidence in your fullest potential, and constantly searching for new opportunities that will help you meet, or even succeed, that potential

·   Invigorating yourself: having the tenacity and discipline to go the distance and secure your personal and professional success – fan the flame within and catch on fire!

·   Omitting the negative: learning from the inevitable negative experiences you will encounter without dwelling on them or letting them consume the valuable real estate in your head – you have so much more ahead of you!

·   Nailing the brand: successfully packaging your substance (your core) up and putting a bow on it so that you become a fresh brand that can successfully compete and WIN internally and externally, which will enable you to achieve exponential personal and professional success

·   Keeping it ‘Fresh’: you need to do it all with a complete new and dazzling approach
