Career Planning Advice: Avoid the 10 Success Killers!

By: pmegan
Sticking to fundamental business principles is the basis for successful career planning. To us this means that our customers are able to lock up job high-paying offers in as little as 14 days or less.

Old-fashioned methods that require seemingly unending mailings and postings of resumes just don't get it anymore. It can take weeks or months to achieve mediocre results.

I recently had the good fortune to read an article about career success by Larry Thompson, a Hollywood producer.
It struck me as a fabulous piece of career planning advice.

Thompson reports that, in his experience, there are 10 success killers. As I read about them it occurred to me that they apply to job search success, as well. That's because one of the key insights into alternative and non-traditional strategies is that employment success follows the same rules as business success.

Here are the success killers you should avoid:

1. Comparing yourself to someone else.

2. Not facing your fears.

3. Leaving a job undone.

4. Feeling sorry for yourself.

5. Failing to speak assertively.

6. Dressing inappropriately.

7. Saying you hate computers.

8. Not taking advantage of advice from family, friends and mentors.

9. Saying "I can't."

10. Having more regrets than dreams.

No one said finding a job is easy. However, most job hunters suffer from lack of results. It's usually because they've taken the wrong approach. They can't achieve fast and lucrative results by using last century methods.

However, 21st Century strategies are exciting career planning alternatives to the old fashioned ways. Reviewing (and avoiding ) the 10 success killers is a terrific place to start to insure your job search success.
