How do you get the edge over the other job applicants? Do what the other 99% of job applicants have never thought of. Do your research. The average person looking for a job knows little to nothing about the company. Fortunately, you are not average.
Think about what you’ll need to research. What skills are going to be the most valuable to your employer and how do you attain the skills you do not yet have?
Do you know who the president of the company is? Who were the founders, what their declared mission is and where are they going in the future? Does their mission statement even align with your life direction or beliefs for that matter? By doing your homework you will separate yourself from the crowd.
But, some of your competition will have done the same research and planning as you have. They may even have more experience than you; and may possibly be better looking that you (hard to believe I know). So what can you do? The one thing that you haven’t done is what my friend Charlie Hoehn has done so successfully.
Charley’s wisdom far surpasses his 24 years. He recently wrote a book that I highly recommend reading titled, “Recession-Proof Graduate – Charlie Hoehn’s Guide to Getting Any Job Within A Year of Finishing College.” Charlie has graciously made it available for you to download for free at www.recessionproofgraduate.com. I highly suggest that you take the next 20 minutes and read his Recession-Proof Graduate today. His insight into how to recession-proof your career can give you enormous power to shape the lifestyle you desire.
In his book, Charlie shows readers how to start working for an organization, entrepreneur or industry expert without going through the interview process like everyone else. Readers quickly learn how to start working near the top of an organization within days of reading and applying the tactics.
The other option that average people take is for you to go through interview after interview that may land you at a dull (and possibly unfulfilling) desk job. Better yet you can have your BA degree and start in the preverbal mail-room. Follow what Charlie says. If you are thinking of going back to school, FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE READ HIS BOOK!
