Plug Into the Competition and Win

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

One important way that you can improve your odds in the job search is to research and be aware of the competition. There are two kinds of competition in this context: other companies in your field and other professionals in roles similar to yours. Always know who they are and what they’re doing. Endeavor to “know the competition better than they know themselves.” This will greatly enhance your competitiveness on many levels, and it will also allow you to jump on opportunities that others might not yet be aware of!

Here’s an example of how important it is to be “plugged into” your competitors. One of my clients is the President of a small advertising agency. Her client base is solid, her creative work is excellent, and she makes a very good living in this role. But the thing that my client is most proud of is the fact that her firm is the envy of every small-to-medium sized agency in town. Not because of the creative awards my client has won, and not because of how impressive her offices are – although these are certainly noteworthy achievements.

The reason my client is so envied is that she always seems to land the most prestigious accounts and the most interesting assignments. My client also has a real knack for getting the best designers in the region to work for her. The other agency owners in the region just stand around, shaking their heads in disbelief and frustration. “How does she do it?” they ask themselves, repeatedly.

Career Success Webinar – July 2022

Negotiating Your Compensation: The Rules of the Game

Program: Encore presentation/previously recorded video
Available: July 18-28, 2022 Only
Speaker: Ford R. Myers, President of Career Potential, LLC
Access: Virtual on YouTube. Watch from anywhere on any connected device.
Investment: Free

Why is it that people have such a difficult time successfully negotiating their compensation? The reason we can’t or won’t negotiate is not because we’re incapable of doing so, but rather because we just don’t know how. No one ever taught us “the rules of the game.”

What Clients Are Saying About Career Potential

[quote cite=”B. Rivera, Medical Nutrition Therapist” class=”cite-long”]When we met, I was right in the middle of interviewing for a new job. I was literally panicking because I had no idea how to negotiate salary and benefits. Lucky for me, you agreed to coach me through the process. I am very excited to tell you that not only was I offered the position, but I was able to negotiate a 60% increase in my salary from my present position! I never could have done this without your help. Thank you again for being there for me![/quote]
