Show Notes

If you believe you need a new resume right away to turn your job search around, you might be right. You might need a new resume to start getting interviews, but will your resume get you the right interviews? If you’ve never explored your deep motivations for seeking a particular job function, job level, industry, company size, and more, you might get interviews, but they’ll be wrong for you. Thus, taking the longer, more exploratory, path to job search strategy might actually improve your chances for getting the right job, as opposed to just any job.

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 ...
