It’s Not About The Job; It’s About Your Life!

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

When it comes to job search and career development, I think 99% of the population has it wrong and “does it backwards.” This realization comes from my more than 25 years of experience as a Career Coach, and after working with literally thousands of clients.

Looking back, I believe that this opinion has been developing in my mind for many years. But it was only recently that my thoughts crystallized into a form that I could express in a succinct message.

New clients often feel anxious about their career situations, and express a great sense of urgency or even panic about finding a new job quickly. Their focus is almost always on the JOB – “I need a new job; I have to get a job fast; Please help me land a better job now,” etc. While I understand this experience, I always try to shift the focus of the conversation to other, more important questions. You might ask, “For a person in career transition or out of work, what could be more important than quickly finding a new job?”

A carpenter would never show-up at a construction site with only a hammer. A graphic artist would never interview for a design position without showing a complete portfolio. So why is it that most job seekers use only their resume as the cornerstone of their search?

Job seekers over-emphasize the resume because their other “tools” are weak or nonexistent. But the resume should actually be one of your least used job-seeking tools! Unfortunately, most people don’t know what these other tools are or how to use them effectively.

By integrating these other elements into your job search – and not relying solely on the resume – you can add power, professionalism and flexibility to your efforts. Finding the right job and building a satisfying career is much easier when you have the right tools!

Through you, I learned a lot about the fundamentals of job/career searching, especially the art of networking.
