Interesting post! Have been in the same job for 12 yrs now & am looking for a change. These tips will come in handy. I like that you put having social Media smarts as one of your criteria & Hoping the people I want to apply to think the same.I think it’s V imp in this day & age to to Soc media smart & employers need to see it as a plus & not the opp. I tailored my blog which am passionate about to suit the needs of my clients & hopefully new employers will see it as that. It’s amazing how much stress you can get from employers who do not get social media. Thanks Ted, will check out some other posts when I get time. Busy Saturday with kids today 🙂 Nice weekend!
Another great tip is always bring thank you cards with you to an interview, with the envelopes already addressed, stamped and ready to go. Right after you are done sit down outside and write a quick note to each person you met. Include a specific highlight from your interview, something business related and something personal. Reinforce your positioning, exude enthusiasm, persistence and honesty… and mail from right there. They will receive the very next day, while you are still fresh in their minds, and it will set you apart form the rest.
Fabulous short video Ted! I am going to fw it to my 7 business school mentees. I am always stressing to them to learn how to nurture relationships (when they meet other professionals) and proper interview follow up and techniques.
You are right, while young people “get” the platforms they need experience in relationship building… their expectations are much more “instant”
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the feedback Laura. So much they can be doing now with the tools available… if they recognize that they are facilitators, not the relationship itself.
