Proven Keys To Getting A Better Job

Key#1: An optimist, Determined Attitude. Take the positive factors to heart. Ignore the negative news about the “tough” economy or tough job market. Instead, focus on the factors that there are always opportunities for top-quality people--- and that’s you!

Key#2: Organize Your ‘Sales Story.” Few people think of it this way, but you are actually selling yourself and your services to an employer. Before even attempting to arrange job interviews or going in to fill out any applications, make notes of your best qualities, past accomplishments, reasons why a company should hire you, and references. Carry these notes with you, if you are filling out job applications, or use them in preparing a resume. And get this information firmly fixed in your mind, so you can use it in conversations and interviews.

Key#3: Don’t Limit Yourself to Advertised Openings. Sure, you should check the newspapers and magazines in your particular field, depending on how far along you are in your career. But don’t stop there! Most people further their careers through the “hidden job market,” not through advertised openings.

The Secret of “Hidden” Job Market:

Some of the largest employment agencies and outplacement firms did research and estimated that less than 25% of all the jobs paying good wages are filled by employment agencies or applicants responding to wanted ads. In fact, many of these jobs are never advertised at all! About 75% of these jobs are filled by recommendation and referral; someone already working at that company refers a friend…by “tips”—“I hear XYZX is hiring…”---or by prospective employees presenting themselves to companies without regard to whether they are known to be hiring or filling a position at that moment.

This “75% factor” tells you that you need to DIVERSIFY your job search. For example, you’ll want to let everybody you know who is employed anywhere, as well as “center of influence” type people like your, or your family’s, accountant, lawyer, banker, know that you are interested in finding a particular type of position. Put the word out! Build a “target list” of employers you think you’d like to work for and contact them, even if they are not advertising any openings or known to be hiring.

Key#4: Always Be Preparing For Your Next Move Up The Career Ladder.   
Through employer offered training, other formal or informal training and informal self-study with books, other publications, classes and seminars, you will benefit greatly by being in the “getting ready for my next, better position” mode all the time.

Three Proven Keys To Job Security, Wage Increases and Promotions
 
Key#1: Out-Perform Your Job. It may take a bit longer than you would like, but no one doing truly excellent, outstanding work can go unnoticed or unrewarded very long. Excellence at small things inevitably leads to big opportunities.   

Key#2: Create Opportunity In or On Your Job. There’s an interesting word: “Intrapreneurship.” Sort of “an inside entrepreneur.” *A fancy way of talking about creating new opportunities within the corporate structure and environment and expanding the scope and value of a job. The intrapreneur not only does his/her assigned, described job well, but is alert for opportunities to expand that job, and is prone to bring new, carefully thought out ideas for improving some aspect of his/her job or moving his/her employer’s business forward. 

Key#3: Become Over-Qualified. Sometimes people are turned down for certain jobs because they are “over-qualified.” But a sure way to move up form one job to a better one is to develop the education, thinking, habits, behavior and image of someone who has that better job.

You can also consider “Entrepreneurship”. “Entrepreneur refers to someone who takes on a certain amount of risk to start his/her own business enterprise, is his/her own boss.
