One of the most common complaints I have heard from most job seekers is many of them think they can’t land a great job because they don’t have enough experience. They focus so much or get scared of some job descriptions.

So many have avoided going for the good or better jobs because of their “lack of experience” or “lack of certification” excuse.

Are you one of such job seekers?

The truth is, with the right job search tactics you can beat their job descriptions and “shortcut” your way to a perfect job – even if you’re not so qualified for the job. And it’s one of the many job search tactics I teach my students in my Job Search Blueprint course. I have used the tactics in the past and know exactly how exactly it works. Some of my students are also currently using it and I will be sharing their success stories once it becomes available....   Read the Full Article>>>

I stumbled across an article written by J.T. O’Donnell titled, “Meet the ‘Sophisticated Job Seeker’ Who’s Disrupting Recruiting.” I loved the article because most of what she said about “sophisticated” job seekers resonated with me and what I am teaching students and job seekers around the world through my online course.

In the article, here’s what J.T said about “sophisticated” job seekers: Often referred to as “passive candidates,” these individuals are currently employed and don’t visit job boards. Instead, they mimic the behavior of sophisticated consumers and approach their search for their next employer with extreme focus. The way they see it, they don’t want to work for you, they want to work with you. They believe they’re a business-of-one who has the right to find the right partner (a.k.a. ideal employer)....   Read the Full Article>>>

John: Hello Sir, I’m seriously searching for a job. I’m a graduate with some project management skills and experiences. I’d also like to know if your company is currently employing or when they would be employing?

Hiring Manager: We’re currently not employing but there might be job openings soon. Please drop your CV in the CV box over there.

Most recruiters and hiring managers in countries like Nigeria are getting smarter and smarter because of the recession. They are now looking for candidates with creative ideas and mind sets who would hit the ground running. And creativity is not for the lazy-minded!...   Read the Full Article>>>

If you’re one of those Corps members who just passed out in Nigeria or if you’re a job seeker in any of the countries around the world, let me ask you, “What has been your job search strategy or what job search strategy are you planning to adopt?”

If you ask most job seekers what their job search strategy is, you will hear something like this: I will create a very good CV and submit it manually and online to various companies and recruiting agencies in the country. I will also upload it on some job seaload it on some job search networks. And some might add, I will tell my friends and family members that I’m now seeking for a job....   Read the Full Article>>>

Job Search Strategy

You graduated from the university, created a powerful CV, submitted it to various companies using both the online and traditional methods, waited for any of the companies to contact you or invite you for a job interview, and kept waiting, AND….nothing.

Then you created another powerful CV, submitted it to recruiters and hiring managers in different companies, they promised they would help you push your CV once there’s any vacancy or job opportunity, you called them once in a while to remind them, you waited patiently for any of them to contact you back, and you kept waiting, AND….nothing....   Read the Full Article>>>

There are several career paths that can lead to success.
There are several career paths that can lead to success.

Most professions, such as the medical, legal or engineering profession, have a normal career path. This career path is termed “normal,” not because it is the only right or successful career path to follow, but because it is the most popular career path for practitioners in those professions. Most of the young and aspiring practitioners in those professions are also looking forward to following that same “normal” career path.

In the project management profession, there is also a normal, popular or recognised career path. Most practitioners who are currently in the profession have followed that career path and it is the dominating career path....   Read the Full Article>>>

How often have you heard job seekers or persons who want to change career say, “I will accept any job that comes my way as long as the pay is good?”

It is no longer a sound advice to tell job seekers or persons who want to change career to “accept any job that comes their way.” It’s like you are indirectly telling them that having a job search strategy or career plan is irrelevant.

However, I am also not in support of you sitting at home and waiting for your dream job or dream company when there are some job or career opportunities knocking on your door....   Read the Full Article>>>
