The Importance of “Third Party Validation” in Job Search

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

When you’re conducting a job search, you need to “sell yourself.” You need to tell everyone who will listen how fabulous you are and how qualified you are. Right? Well, sort-of. Of course you have to “sell yourself,” but there is a better way to establish your desired impression or “brand.”

Let’s face it, you can go around all day telling others how qualified you are and how wonderful your work is. But this approach, if taken to an extreme, can actually backfire on you. It can make you seem conceited and self-centered. A better strategy is to develop and leverage “third party validation” in your search. This means getting lots of OTHER PEOPLE to say how great you are and how wonderful your work is.

Employers may not believe your own boasts and claims of excellence. But when many other people “sing your praises,” the message is much more believable. Third party validation, in other words, provides credibility and confirmation of your best qualities as a candidate.

What Clients Are Saying About Career Potential

I retained Ford under the assumption that he would help me refine my professional documents and ultimately help me land a new job. What I experienced was much more than that. Ford changed my entire thought process for the better. He coached me through my preconceived notions about myself and my work. Ford provided motivational, educational and critical insight into my career and life. I am extremely pleased to say that with Ford’s assistance, I transitioned out of my old company and into a dynamic new opportunity that perfectly suits my talents. I would highly recommend hiring Ford as an Executive Career Coach if given the opportunity!J. Rosenfeld, Operations Professional
