Pandemic Job Searching and Courageous Career Change

I wanted to pop in for a minute to tell you what has been going on since I last posted an episode of The Job Search Podcast. Actually, it’s been a busy, crazy time. We’ve all learned the modern definition of “quarantine,” and despite the havoc COVID has wrought on every single one of our lives, I hope that everyone listening is doing well and thriving. The truth from the careers space is that we’ve all seen the impacts of COVID on our job markets. We saw unemployment numbers surge, and it seems like we will never see equilibrium again. The biggest thing I did over the last year was to publish a book, now available on Amazon. It’s called Courageous Career Change: Fearlessly Earn the Executive Role You Deserve. The feedback I have received since it published in early November 2020 has been phenomenal. To my delight, the book took off and hit #1 in Kindle’s Job Hunting category in its first week, and remained in the top 10 for a while, too. You can check out Courageous Career Change: Fearlessly Earn the Executive Role You Deserve on Kindle and in print on Amazon now: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P29DBDT ...

A Simple Research Plan for Executive Job Search Success, Part 2 | The Job Search Podcast

Your job function might have correlates across multiple industries, so you might believe you can fit almost anywhere. This might be true, but that is a hard sell and nearly impossible to convey in a properly constructed resume or during an interview. Your resume needs to target your assets relative to a particular industry. Your interview needs to convey your experience so that a hiring executive sees the solution to his or her problems in your experience. Thus, you need to determine which industry, or which sub-industry, into which you will best fit and in which you will feel most rewarded.
