Storms To Sunny Skies

This week I want to share with you the storms of a career search.  Many times we don’t get what we want when we want it.  There are many career changers out there that go through storms before there are sunny skies.  It’s worth it to do the work in order to move towards work you love.

Hey Buddy! I Need Some Help

by Jory Butler on September 10, 2010

Networking

Working with clients, reading many books, and simply living life, one thing is for sure about careers.  In order to find a career that you love, you must “Network.”  That means building relationships and asking for help.  The term network, can instantly cause our minds to go blank and bring fear. Some clients say, “I don’t know anyone who could help me in my job search.”  I feel confident they really do know people, but don’t utilize the relationships they have.

Do you remember the movie, “Cast Away?”  This is the movie that Tom Hanks is stranded on a deserted island for years. Tom Hanks was truly alone and had to figure out how to survive. Many job seekers can relate to the feeling of being on a deserted island called the “Job Search”.  People, who tend to find work they love, find it because of relationships.  Sometimes people need to be reminded to connect with others, in order to find a career they love.

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about people you may know to help land your next job or career.

  • Social Media/Networks
  • Job Search Networks and Clubs
  • Community Leaders and Local Business Contacts
  • Friends & Family
  • Past & Present Coworkers, Classmates, and Teachers.
  • People that work within your target company
  • Authors for Newspapers, Magazines, and Blogs.
  • People in your church

I know there are many more ideas out there, but start with a few and get to connecting.  Start “Networking” and you might be surprised how close you really are to finding work you love.
