Happy New Year…What Are Your Plans for the Next 364 Days?

 

Did I catch you off guard with this cartoon? Well, it’s adding some humor to the first day of a brand new year!

Anyway, I want you to make the most of the remaining 364 days, so I have gathered some links, quotes and some of my own musings that I hope you will find helpful.

  • After setting your goals, plan to evaluate your progress each day. “If you believe that you need to improve your self-discipline – hire a coach”, says Glenn Llopis of Forbes Blog. Related article here: Top 5 Career Investments for 2012.
  • Start the New Year on the “Wright” foot. Reserve your spot today to join me on a FREE teleconference on January 3, @ 8 pm Eastern.  Register here.
  • Networking is still one of the most successful job search techniques, so nurture your network. Don’t wait until you are in a rut to connect with them.
  • Understand how to use the ‘Vacuum Theory’  to advance your career: do the jobs others won’t do, make a visible difference with your presence, and become known as the ‘go to’ expert.
  • Find a job you like and you add five days to every week. ~H. Jackson Brown
  • Don’t allow anyone to discourage you from dreaming lofty dreams. “People too weak to follow their own dreams will always find a way to discourage yours.” @WomenofHistory.

Hope you find them helpful. Happy New Year to you and much success in 2012.

The 3 V’s to Job Search Success

The 3 V’s to job search success are:

1. Your Voice – You never know who will be calling on the phone. Make sure you’re not yawning, sound sleepy or have food in your mouth.

2. Your Vocabulary (Verbal) – Learn the language of your industry and make sure to have professionally-thought out phrases that will roll of your tongue naturally.

3. Your look – Visual – You might not be able to afford the most expensive clothes, so work with what you’ve got. Wear professional-looking clothes that fit well and get a proper haircut / hairstyle. If you’re not sure of the dress code, call and find out or visit the company and see what employees are wearing. That should give you ideas.
