Here are some job resources for you:
- Listen to Live! with Lisa tonight for our questionnaire (Updated 1/28: Questionnaire is typed up here)
- Do a strengths assessment: for example, VIA Signature Strengths Questionnaire
- Write out several stories of when you most enjoyed your work
2) TARGETING TOOLS
- Job sites – especially industry specific
- Friends and colleagues – 48+% find their job through referrals
How else can you target your new job:
- Apply – apply to jobs
- Pre-apply – do informational interviews, group meetings
- Work – run a Meetup group, be a contributor to a blog, start a website or twitter account about your industry, volunteer in it. You can do a lot of work without officially being employed. And then – BIG BENEFIT – it’s not like you were unemployed for ten months. It’s like you were running community events on that field in your industry.
3) ACTION STEPS
- Put in those things relevant to getting called in for a job, and only those things
- Put in those activities that you want to do, not those you don’t want to do!
