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.

Social Media Doesn’t Work

by Justin Lukasavige on May 31, 2010

Believe it or not, I keep hearing that social media doesn’t work. This isn’t a long post; I’ll just make two points.

First, here’s a list of the top referring websites to Coach Radio.

  1. Direct
  2. Twitter
  3. 48days.net (social website)
  4. Google
  5. Free Agent Academy (social website)
  6. Stumbleupon
  7. LinkedIn
  8. Facebook

To be fair, I spend a lot of time on these websites.  Did you really think it was going to be easy though?

Second, this is an interactive map of people who are reading my book, Become a Coach.

Add your zip code to this list

The point is, this map wouldn’t be possible without social media.

If you’d like to see more of a strategy, I’ve put together a bunch of social media tutorials.  They’re all free to watch.

Grow Your Business with Social Media

by Justin Lukasavige on May 29, 2010

I hosted a class with Andy Traub the other night that I thought you’d be interested in.

It’s extremely important to have a presence online and to use social media. This goes far beyond having your own website to send people to.

We spent nearly 60 minutes helping you figure out why you need to be online, where you need to be, and what you need to be doing.
