Job Hunting Quiz

By: pmegan
Maybe you haven't heard of the revolutionary non-traditional job hunt system. We pioneered it when we discovered that the old-fashioned methods didn't work any more.

We found out that writing a resume, distributing it to some job websites, mailing it to a bunch of companies, agencies and recruiters, answering some ads and then waiting for the phone to ring . . . well, they just don't get the job done anymore.

We also discovered that the job market follows the same principles as the business market. And that running a successful job campaign is like running a small entrepreneurial business.

Te see if you're right for this amazing non-traditional job hunt system, take this simple test by answering "true" or "false" to the following questions:

1. I depend on my resume to get me a job.

2. I understand that the more broadly I distribute my resume, the better the response.

3. An employer is most interested in my work history.

4. There's no way to avoid competition for a job opening.

5. If there's no job opening, there's no opportunity for me.

If you answered "true" to any of these questions, you better try something new because you don't understand the basics of the 21st Century job market. And you can expect to spend weeks or months looking for a job. A non-traditional job hunt is right for you.

1. Resumes don't get jobs. No one will hire you until they've met you face-to-face and can see for themselves that you can be a welcome addition to the team. This goes way beyond a resume.

2. The more broadly you distribute you resume, the more competition you create for yourself. Just as in an entrepreneurial business, you must target very specific decision-makers in very specific organizations. And then arrange to meet face-to-face.

3. Employers could care less about what you used to do for someone else. They expect you to know something about them and their organization and goals. And then come to the table with specific ways you can make a contribution.

4. When you target a specific decision-maker instead of a job opening, you avoid all the competition.

5. The facts are that some of the best job offers are made in situations where a traditional job opening doesn't exist.

Now, the good news is that there is a proven system that can walk you through the non-traditional job hunt process step-by-step. And if you follow it, you can be meeting face-to-face with a prospective employer in a matter of days. You can be entertaining a good job offer in as little as two weeks!
