Common Misconceptions About Career Management

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

You get your clothes cleaned when they’re dirty. You pay your bills each month. You see your doctor once or twice a year. You send cards to family-members at each birthday. So, why is it that most people (maybe even you!) don’t integrate career management into their regular routine?

Most individuals have a reactive – not a “proactive” – approach to their careers. Thinking that you only need to “fix your career when it’s broken” (i.e., when you’re laid off, downsized or just plain miserable) is a very unfortunate misconception that will seriously limit your career success!

Read this article to learn 10 other common misconceptions about career management.

You’re Invited – Career Success Seminar – October 25, 2018

The Power of “Pull Marketing” in Your Job Search

Date: Thursday, October 25, 2018

When searching for a new job, would you rather “chase after employers,” or have employers “chasing after you?” The choice is YOURS, and you CAN conduct your job search in such a way that employers will take the first step by reaching out to you.

Traditional job search methods include sending-out resumes, applying for jobs online, attending job fairs, contacting employers and recruiters, and of course – networking. All of these tasks, collectively, fall under the heading “Push Marketing.” This is because you’re “pushing” your message, hoping that someone will take notice. Even if you do make contact, however, you’ll still have to “convince” the employer of your worthiness. This is the downside of “Push Marketing.”

But when employers perceive you as an expert and discover your credibility “on their own,” they’ll tend to feel “pulled” toward you and even pursue you. This is the primary benefit of “Pull Marketing.”

Career Coaching via Video Conferencing

Career Coaching Video ConferencingFor many years, we have worked via video conference with “long distance” clients (or local clients whose circumstances have made it difficult to visit our offices). Our coaching model allows us to work remotely and still provide exceptional levels of connection, quality and impact. We are happy to serve clients from anywhere in the United States and Canada via video conference.

Here are just some of the benefits of doing career coaching via video chat:

Time – clients save time by not having to travel to our offices for coaching sessions
Comfort – clients are often more comfortable working from their own homes or offices
Flexibility – clients experience fewer planning conflicts and more flexibility with scheduling
Convenience – clients who travel for work are still able to attend their coaching appointments by using mobile devices from anywhere

Career coaching via video conference is easy and effective. For more information, please visit: https://careerpotential.com/career-coaching-video-conferencing/.
