Doing Job Search the DIY Method? Is it the best way?
I’m not just talking financial here, OK I will talk about the figures in a minute, but the true cost of NOT being employed is not just monetary.
I have had the great pleasure of speaking to people from all over the world and I’ve spoken to some really inspiring people, some of which have been high level Directors. The one thing I’ve learnt is that regardless of your position, level of responsibility or location; people are made redundant, you too could lose your job.
S*** happens. Life happens.
In fact, it may not come down to an involuntary push, you may just decide that you’ve had enough and want out of your current job. I know from speaking with my clients, that whether by choice or force, it can be really devastating to be out of work.
You see I believe that we equate our job with self-worth. Being either unemployed or feeling trapped in a job that you can’t escape, can make us feel trapped.
As a job seeker, people that are unemployed can find it difficult to deal with the change in routine and those still unhappily employed, can suffer with anxiety from being in a job they absolutely hate (and yes, I been in the latter situation but that’s another story for another day!)
You think getting hired will be pretty easy, but then you realise that it has more or less turned into a daily battle and that daily battle can be tough!
You update your Resume and LinkedIn profile as advised by all of those websites giving out free tips and yes, that will take you so far, but that’s the problem, you’re still not hired yet and may not have even been offered an interview.
You don’t have a crystal ball and although you thought it may only take you a couple of months to find some work, now it’s stretching further into the abyss!
The daily battle continues but by now, you’re actually doing a daily battle with yourself.
You lose confidence. Hope even.
You feel it will never happen, even it does, can you still do the job?
You question everything.
You still try though; you still keep applying.
But you feel something is amiss.
You just don’t get the results you want and if you do hit the bullseye, you feel the company is taking the mickey. “Really, you want me to reduce my salary by that much?”
Is this what you have to live with now?
What is the cost to you? It’s super easy for me to calculate the financial cost of you NOT getting hired, see my little chart below. However, the real cost is the emotional cost, it’s the cost that being on the job market too long can have on you.
It all gets a lot easier when you have someone on your side, someone to help you and something to PUSH you forward when the chips are down! Someone to get you back on track with a strategic plan, not the gung ho, ad hoc approach you have at present.
Have you had enough of the DIY approach? Is it time to get professional and claim back what you are worth?
So the first step as they say is recognising the problem, the next is doing something about it. Now I’ve added two extra bonus, it’s called the Complimentary Breakthrough session to getting YOU hired!
