So you’re looking for a job?
Times are tough out there and you find yourself on the outside looking in?
What to do?
You could do like so many others are doing and just quit, give up and collect from the Federal government and be a burden to the rest of society… That’s always an option…especially from a government that seems to be encouraging that these days…
You can fight back. Take control of your own life and get yourself into the game.
If you find a recuriter out there that you trust, and I certainly hope that you trust us here at Crossroads Consulting, LLC and try and establish a relationship with your recruiter of choice and hope for the best. One thing you’ll always be assured of here is that you will get nothing but the truth from us, even if that truth isn’t what you want to necessarily hear.
The other thing that you can do is pick yourself up from the kicking to the ground that you’ve taken and get out there.
What do I mean?
Spend some time on the computer and target companies that a) you would have some interest in working for and b) that you think would have some interest in talking with you. The best choice for the latter is to call competitors of your most preficous company…especially if you spent any kind of significant time at all working there. Find out who the person is that you would be reporting to, and here’s the part that takes some courage…JUST SHOW UP and try and get an interview.
That’s bold…there’s no doubt about that, but in this marketplace you have to do whatever you have to do to make something happen for yourself. If you’re in sales, what better way to demostarte to a Sales Manager that you’re not afraid of cold-calling then to show up like a cold -call and sell yoruself.
Essentailly that’s what we as Recruiters are doing for you. We do it slightly differently in that we have contacts with many of the management teams of companies all over a particular region and when we’re impressed with a particular candidate we pick up the phone and start making calls on your behalf.
It sounds a lot simpler than it really is…the recruiting side that is. But the bottom line is that things happen when you shake things up.
It’s not easy right now. I’m not going to kid you. We’ve taken a gigantic hit over the last couple of years ourselves, but I get myself up and into the office everyday even when I don’t feel like it and get right back in there.
You can do it too. Don’t lose faith in yourself. That’s the one thing that nobody should ever be able to take away from you. I’ve had my own battles with it the last two years and it’s a process that you have to go through in order to give yourself that competitive edge to win out on jobs over so many other deserving people.
There are opportunities out there. You just have to get out there and find them.
We’re here to answer any of your questions and help you us much as possible. Feel free to call us at 203-459-9969 anytime Monday through Friday from 9-5 or you can email us anytime at email@example.com. A good recruiter who genuinelly cares about the people they work with, which we like to think that we do, are hard to find. That’s why we have the motto, “Crossroads Consulting, LLC., We’re putting the ‘Human’ back into Human Resources.”
This is your wake-up call.
It’s a brand new day.
