Episode 029: The 7 Keys to Job Search Sanity – just in time for the New Year!


Have you been spinning your wheels during your job search, feeling like you’re not making any progress? 


Do you feel like you’ve got the skills to get a new job, but something is not quite right with your approach? 


Do you want a few simple tweaks to breathe new life into your job search? 


As I wrote the above, I was like, “WHOA this sounds like one of those cheesy TV ads to “CALL NOW” for a Chia Pet or something. But I swear it’s not. 


I noticed a lot of my clients and friends were struggling with the job search. Forget the fact that it’s not a basket of spring flowers even on the best day, but on top of that, they just weren’t getting the results they wanted.  


They were looking for momentum, call backs, people responding to their applications, being in the know for various opportunities and yes, eventually a job.  


But it was all so elusive. So, I dug deep into their processes, attitudes, and methodologies and I found some gaping holes.
