Introduction

Most of us have very similar desires in life:

To be wealthy.

To be healthy.

To have positive relationships.

To have more free time to do what we want.

To be more attractive.

To have more security, and freedom from fear.

To possess inner contentment and serenity.

To experience pleasure and fun.

And of course, to have all these things in our lives – we almost always need to have some money. In order to get that money, most of us need to have jobs. I say most of us, because there are those few who’ve been fortunate enough to win the lotto, or inherit millions from a distant relative, who happened to have nobody else to leave their fortune to. I’m not going to include the “self-employed” to this group of fortunate souls, because even the self-employed have jobs. They usually just work longer hours than those who work for bosses.

*Now*, there are a few different types of jobseekers, and all of them have very different needs:

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The not so urgent – “I still live with my folks” jobseeker.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The all too common – “I’ve had enough of my shitty boss” jobseeker.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The other all too common – “I hate my job” jobseeker.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The more fortunate “I just need a change” jobseeker.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. And the super urgent – “I’ve just been made redundant” jobseeker.

Most of these are totally different types of jobseekers, with totally different motivation triggers. I’m not implying in any way whatsoever that any of these jobseekers are having it easier than the next. As humans, we all feel like our own story is the most important one, and hate being told how easy we’re having it compared to others. However, I do think we could at least put them all into some perspective.

You see, during my thirty-six years of working life, I’ve been in almost all these jobseeker positions at one time or another, and I can honestly say I’m not one hundred percent certain which one stressed me out the worst. I was married, and had a child by the age of seventeen – so I never had the opportunity of experiencing the “I still live with my folks” scenario.

But I’m sure you can imagine the stress on my poor young wife and I when we had zero income, zero work-experience, and almost zero education to speak of. Strangely enough however, that wasn’t the worst jobseeker stress I’ve had in my life, because I think was just too young to realise what a bad situation I was in. I thought I was bulletproof at that stage of my life. It was fantastic, because I had no reason to believe I could fail. I just went out and asked everyone I knew if they had a job for me, until I was hired.

I had never even heard of the word procrastination, so I’m guessing that’s why it’s just something I never tried. When I wanted something, I either asked for it, or went and got it myself… immediately – not tomorrow.

Isn’t it strange how when we’re young, and have all the time in the world, we do things NOW, and as we get older, and have less time, we do things TOMORROW. What the hell’s that all about?

My baptism into the working world was – “I need a job immediately, and I’ll take anything I can get”. That got me into the air force, and I remained there for almost seven years. I can honestly say I really hated it, but fortunately I got a great education while I was hating it. When I eventually plucked up the courage to leave, I landed my first sales job. I sucked so bad at this job, that I thought my family was going to starve unless I could somehow pull off a miracle. You see, this was a commission only sales job, so no sales – no salary!

After struggling along in that stressful situation for about ten months, I actually pulled off that miracle I was hoping for, and found a sales job that earned us more money than we ever imagined. Unfortunately, it was short-lived because the company went belly up, and I was left with an expensive car, one month of salary, and a mortgage to pay… Oops!

Suddenly I was one of the – “I’ve just been made redundant” jobseekers, and I was terrified. This was 1990, and the economy was in the toilet at that stage. I needed money fast, and finding a job was taking way too long, so I did the only thing I could think of. I started my own business.

I started a home maintenance company, and became the “I’m now self-employed” guy. This is a really great idea if you know what the hell you’re doing. I did not. That’s when I found out how much more the self-employed guys have to work, and how many bosses they actually have. Holy crap – every client thought they were my boss, and unfortunately they were, because they were the ones paying me every month.

But hey! I’m rambling on about my life, and this book isn’t about me – It’s about you, and how you’re going to land that awesome job ahead of all the other competing jobseekers. So, let’s get going.

Finding a new job, kickstarting a new career, or looking for a way to boost an existing one, will always be stressful to some degree. This all depends on your current situation, either financial or personal. Some people will be so stressed that they find it difficult to think straight, while others may only be very slightly affected.

It can either be an extremely chaotic period for you, or you could take the neccesary actions to ensure a transition that’s as smooth, and as stressfree as possible. For this to happen, you’ll need some structure and order to your job search, and to achieve this, there are some essential steps which must be followed:

#
p<>{color:#000;}. The number one priority by far – Make your CV count!

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Write a kick-ass cover letter

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Take a focused approach to your job search

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Don’t let your social media trip you up at the finish-line

The rules for using this book properly

The seven rules featured within this book are not the only rules for succeeding in your quest for finding a new job. However, they have been carefully selected as the seven most important rules. When attempting to achieve anything worthwhile in life, there will always be some rules which must be considered, otherwise you’ll have no direction, and less chance of succeeding.

Knowledge is only power when put into action”

I know someone said this, I just can’t recall who

Well, this is no different. You’re about to give up some of your valuable time reading this book. The smart thing to do once you’re done, would be to put the what you learn, into action. I’m sure you may even already know a fair amount of what’s in these rules – but that’s okay, because reading them will serve as a perfect reminder.

 

The seven rules

Study these rules – Follow them to the best of your ability – And achieve your goal…

Rule # 1 – Make your CV count

Putting your CV together in a professional manner is absolutely critical to getting your foot in the door, and not having that all important document dropped into the bin with the hundreds of other crappy ones. There is a small percentage of people who just happen to be naturally good at it, and good for them – but they’re seriously few and far between. Even some top-level executives, write cracking marketing communication material on a daily basis, yet their CV’s are hopeless.

However, most of them understand the importance of a professional, well presented CV, so they don’t hesitate to seek out professional assistance. Usually, they’ve also had to suffer through more than their fair-share of bad CV’s when sifting through potential employees. That’s why they appreciate the value of focusing on the document that’s going to represent them in the workplace. More often than not, they’re quite happy to fork out large sums of money to get it done right.

With the advent of the web, and our global assistant, Google – we all now have the ability to download just about anything our minds can conceive, and CV writing advice is just one of those things. Not to mention the hundreds of CV templates we can get for free.

I just find it so ironic. The high-flying executive, who not only has years of experience in her industry, or profession, but she’s also been on the hiring side of the table, and seen more CV’s than you or I have had hot breakfasts. Yet, she would rather pay the money to use something that not every Joe is using. That way she knows she’s getting something worthwhile having, and her chance of getting the job increases massively.

You see, it’s perfectly okay to accept free stuff from the web when it’s not something that determines the success or failure of your future. And believe me when I tell you, the quality of your CV will determine the success or failure of your future employment prospects. So, don’t skimp on the most important document in your briefcase, and the one that’s going to represent you in the marketplace. Spend a few bucks and get a great looking document that’s going to give you the edge over the poor suckers who don’t know this stuff. I guarantee it’s going to improve your chances of being the one sitting in the interview.

Last, but certainly not least – Most people tend to only update their CV when they begin looking for a new job. This can often put you at a disadvantage, because it’s really easy to forget important points, and end up omitting information that could have sealed the deal for you. Remember to update your CV on a regular basis, thus keeping it current and up-to-date.

If you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready – and that’s how I run my life”

Will Smith

The best way of ensuring that your CV remains current, is by using tools that make it quick and easy to manage. ASAP CV is one such tool that gives you the ability to build a professional CV with ease, and then keep it updated with minimal hassle.

Rule # 2 – Write a kick-ass cover letter

I’m going to use writing and marketing a book as an example here again, because I think it will make my point clear to you. Before writers publish their books, they take great care in ensuring that the covers make the right statements to potential readers. The cover is what’s going to hook the readers in initially, which encourages them to move on to reading the synopsis. It’s kind of like a news article. The headline hooks you in, and then the opening few lines of the article make you either read it through, or move to the next headline.

A kick-ass cover letter has a few important points you absolutely must adhere to, otherwise you may as well just leave it out, and send the CV without it:

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Don’t just rehash the same stuff that’s written in your CV. Nobody wants to feel like they’re having Déjà vu when they read your CV. These are two separate document, with very different purposes, and should be treated as such.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Remember – You’re applying for a specific position, so make certain, your opening paragraph tells the reader that.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Most, if not all job ads will be clear about what the most critical elements of the job are. i.e. What the employer believes to be the desired and essential skills for the job. Be sure to address those in the next few paragraphs, letting the reader know why you’re the best fit for the position.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. As any half-decent sales-person will tell you. When you write a sales e-mail, try to match the language of the potential buyer if you can. So, if you have a document from the customer, detailing their requirements, take careful note of how they express themselves, and do what you can to match the tone without being too obvious. Remember, when you’re looking for a job, you’re also selling, and you’re selling the most important thing you’ll ever sell – Yourself.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. If the job add says they’re looking for someone who can negotiate at C-level, then describe how, in your previous job, you were able to expand into an organisation, thus giving you direct access to their executive team, which resulted in driving sales revenue up by 15% within six months (Or something to that effect).

The technology factor (A very important point to consider)

There’s another critical component we should address, when responding to a job add. In today’s world of ever advancing technology, we have an additional player in the game, and it’s one we should all begin to take as seriously as all the others. The player I’m referring to is recruiting software technology.

These days, HR departments in companies with more than two hundred staff members, just do not have the time to read each and every job application that lands on their desks. Up to 80% of them are now using advanced recruiting packages that possess the algorithms to drill down, using incredibly accurate filters, and eliminating wishful candidates within seconds.

These filters work very similar to search engine optimisation tools (SEO), and are able to pinpoint the ideal candidates for a specific role, using customised algorithms. If you want to place your name at the top of the pile, you’ll have to begin playing the game the way it’s now been designed, otherwise you’ll find yourself at the bottom of the pile with all the others who aren’t aware of these tools.

Reading job ads, and applying for jobs has become somewhat of a science these days, and if you can get your head around that science, you’ll stand a far better chance of winning. Therefore, rather than simply referring to the job title in an add – you should analyse it closely, picking out key words and sentences.

Then utilise those words when you write both cover letter and CV. Now, when your application is pushed through any recruiting software being used, you’ll have a far better chance of yours making it all the way to the HR manager’s desk. For example – desired and essential skills listed within the specific job advert must be reflected in your cover letter and CV. That is, of course assuming you actually do have those skills!

Rule # 3 – Take a focused approach to your job search

Too many people end up casting such a wide net that they find themselves touching everywhere, but grabbing nowhere. Remember, I said looking for a job is much the same as selling a product. One of the first things I learned in the marketing module of my MBA, was to select a niche market, and narrow it down using a process called segmentation.

Instead of going with the Ready Fire Aim method, and just blasting your CV all over the show – you should really consider the consequences of doing something so un-focused.

That’s fine if you’re still young, living with your folks, and looking for a part time job until you can decide what you want to do with your life. But if you’re serious about your future, and looking for something that’s going to get you fired up, and push your career in the right direction, then Ready Aim Fire is not the smart thing to do.

Take some time, and think about what you really want to do with your life. I don’t care if you’re twenty-three, or fifty-three (which is my age) – you should do everything in your power to come to terms with what it is you want out of your next job. You may only be there for six months, or you could stay for six years. Who knows, you may just love it so much that you stay until you retire. No matter which one it is, you’re going to be spending more time at work than anywhere else, so why not try find something that’s going to suit you best.

Thirty-five years ago, we never had Google, and researching potential companies or industries took forever. Today, you can research in one hour, what took me one week back then. Use this to your advantage, and do as much research as time permits, because it’s going to serve you well.

If you’ve already chosen a particular industry to work in, or you’ve been working in your industry for some time already, then I guess you only need to research organisations within that industry. That is of course, unless you’re tired of your industry, and wanting to move to another. There are several pros and cons to moving from one industry to another, and you can find many articles about this on the web. Unfortunately, this book doesn’t cover that area.

Once you’ve completed your research, and landed on where you would like to take your career next, then it’s time to begin crafting that all important CV to match your selection perfectly. Remember – and I cannot stress this strongly enough. Your CV is by far the number one priority on your list of things to do, and you simply cannot take any part of it too lightly. Spend enough time on it, and do not be shy to spend a few bucks on something that looks professional, because you’ll want to stand out in the crowd.

Another very important thing is to keep a record of where you send your CV off to. You really don’t want to forget where all the copies of that critical important document are. I know this may sound obvious to most people, but trust me when I say that it’s really easy to get a little lost in a maze of e-mails, and job applications – especially during a time when you may be a little stressed about finding a job.

So, make an Excel spreadsheet, or use whatever method suits your talents best – but please take a little time to at least devise something that’s going to help ensure you don’t find yourself either not sending your CV to a company, because you thought you already sent it, or sending it to the same place twice.

Make this your new mantra:

Follow

One

Course

Until

Successful

Rule # 4 – Don’t let your social media trip you up at the finish-line

I’ve only recently begun using social media to promote my books, website, and blog. In fact, even blogging is really new to me, but I’m loving it. I see so many people utilising their Facebook and Twitter like whizz-kids all day long, and it can really be a fantastic tool for keeping in contact, and connecting to the rest of the world. However, it can also be your Achilles heel when a prospective employer follows you on Twitter, and judges by the nasty comment you just posted about their favourite politician.

It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation

and only one bad one to lose it”

Benjamin Franklin

Or perhaps they checkout that awesome Facebook page you made two years ago, when you were really into the Goth scene, and feel it might be inappropriate to have a guy in their Law firm who looks more like the Ozzy Osborne show, than LA Law. It doesn’t matter that you haven’t updated that particular page for two years, and have long since discarded the black lipstick, and studded collar. First impressions last, and no matter what you’d like to believe, people judge books by their covers.

I’m sure you get this, because it’s seriously not rocket science. So, as a matter of priority, go check out all your social media, and imagine you’re that prospective hiring manager, who’s trying to get a feel for the character and personality of this potential candidate for the job. If you honestly feel it’s all fine, and there’s nothing to be worried about, then all is well, and you can move on.

If you don’t have a LinkedIn page yet, go sign up for one right now. This is the Facebook of the business world folks, and you cannot afford to be without it. This is where you can do so much of your company research, and it’s an incredible source of information. Another really fantastic thing about LinkedIn, is how simple it is to get information about your potential new boss, or colleagues.

You will never get a second chance to make a first impression”

Will Rogers

It also serves as a really important medium for advertising yourself to the world of business. With that in mind, do yourself a big favour and get some good advice on how to set up a good LinkedIn profile. That’s almost as important as your CV, because potential employers will almost certainly check it out.

If you do happen to use Twitter, and you’re good at it, then by all means start using it as a job search tool. Perhaps you may want to start a new account that’s more professional than the one you use to follow the football, or Brittany Spears’ career. You can use your new Twitter account to begin following the organisations you’d like to work in, and the key people in those organisations.

Rule # 5 – Smash that interview out of the park

I always smile to myself when I hear hiring managers, and HR types criticise potential candidates who’ve sat across the desk from them like a deer caught in the headlights. How quickly they forget what it felt like for them, before they became such “experts” at it. Only a very small percentage of people in the world are cut out for impromptu discussions – especially when they know they’re being evaluated.

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been in sales for a very long time. I’ve had to stand up in front of more people than I care to remember, and deliver a sales pitch. It took me quite some time to become confident at it, and at one point I thought I’d never be able to stop my hands from shaking, or getting such a dry mouth that I thought I’d need a crowbar to remove my tongue from my pallet.

Eventually I got it right, and was just as comfortable standing up in a boardroom with just a few people listening, as I was in an auditorium with over two hundred people. However, the moment one of my superiors was among the audience, and I felt like I was being evaluated – I fell apart, and became a dry-mouthed babbling idiot for the first minute or so.

If I wasn’t well prepared for the sales pitch I was delivering, and my boss was in the room, I would fail dismally. However, just as long as I was totally prepared for whatever I had to say, and ready for any questions that may come my way – it was only that first shaky minute I had to overcome. Once I got into my groove, I was on fire.

Before you go into any interview – whether it’s the initial telephone chat, or the final day with the CEO of a multi-billion-dollar giant, you absolutely have to be fully loaded, and ready to fire. Of course, there will be the odd question that throws you a little, but they know that, and will very quickly pick up that you’re well prepared during the interview process.

Failing to prepare – Is preparing to fail”

Benjamin Franklin

I’m going to repeat myself here, and I don’t care if I sound like a stuck record. It’s taken a whole lot of sweat blood and tears to get you invited to the interview. Your incredible CV, and brilliant social media skills have paid off, and you now have that big fish on the end of your line. Now you need to reel that fish in, and preparation is key. Do not underestimate the power of being well prepared, and never think you can be over-prepared. That is just not possible.

Learn as much as you possibly can about the organisation and the position you’re aiming to get before you arrive for the interview. Always prepare a few intelligent questions ahead of time. When you’re eventually sitting across from the interviewer, don’t be shy to seem a little eager. Acting too nonchalant about it all, really doesn’t work.

You’re allowed to look enthusiastic, and convince the hiring manager that you really want the job. Why wouldn’t you be excited – You made it this far, when so many other did not. Be mindful not to boast, but rather just confidently state your achievements, and tell stories that highlight your greatest qualities. One thing you must never do, is badmouth your previous boss, colleagues, or company. Try not to overwhelm the interviewer with too much enthusiasm, especially if he/she is obviously a very low-reacting type of individual.

Some interview questions are really standard issue, and anyone who’s been in a couple will most definitely have heard them. One of my personal favourites is “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” Seriously – I can’t believe they still ask this one so often, but they do, so it’s best to be ready for it.

The part I hate the most, is the weaknesses part. The key to answering the weakness part of the question –is to do whatever you can to spin it in a positive light. You might try saying, “I’m not the best at developing sexy PowerPoint slides, but I’ve been working on that, and when I put them together, I always have someone proofread it.” The interviewer wants to know that you’re self-aware and mature enough to talk about your weaknesses.

Rule # 6 – Keep your head in the game

This one relates specifically to those people who are currently unemployed. You may have been made redundant, or perhaps you took the big leap of faith and resigned before having another job lined up. You may even be retired, but realised it’s not for you, and you’d rather get back on the horse.

It doesn’t matter which category you fall into – right now you’re between jobs, so this information is for you. Use this valuable free time to upskill yourself, or at the very least remain current with the skills you already have. You can read books, attend seminars and industry expos, or you could even take a class or two.

You’re not going to sound too sharp when the interviewer asks what you’ve been doing for the past few months, when you just stare at him all wide eyed while you search for something worth saying. Quite often, doing some volunteer work can be extremely rewarding, and it doesn’t hurt your CV either.

Do not – and I say again – Do not let yourself get sucked into doing projects around the house, or helping others complete their own personal projects. Looking for a job, is a job in itself, and keeping yourself occupied with the important stuff is critical. So, leave the chores, and DIY projects for the weekend and evenings, the way you normally would if you were at work from Monday to Friday.

Rule # 7 – Network wherever, and whenever you can

If you’ve developed a strong network while you were working, then make sure you maintain that network. Do not let it slip, because humans have a tendency to forget each other very quickly. Keep your LinkedIn profile current, and let all your contacts know you’re in the market. Don’t be afraid of making people aware of your situation. You don’t have a contagious disease. You’re simply looking for a new opportunity.

When a man is out of sight, it’s not too long before he is out of mind”

Thomas Kempis

Give your message a positive edge, so your contacts can see you’re not sitting in a dark room, eating tubs of ice-cream, and plunging headlong into depression. When people can see that you’re doing okay, they want to stay in contact with you. These are your business connections, not staff at a crisis help line.

Remember in the “Keep your head in the game” section above. I said you should try attend seminars and industry expos. Well that applies here too. Those can often be ideal places to bump into old colleagues, former clients, potential employees, and even friends you haven’t seen for a while. All of these can be great resources, and often they’ll introduce you to completely new people, who then become new contacts, and very possibly one of your next bosses.

Before you go face-to-face networking it’s important to be prepared, and there are a few key things you can do. Firstly, make sure you’re groomed according to the occasion. i.e. If the industry expo you’re attending calls for a suit & tie – then suit & tie it is. Do not arrive in your beach or golf attire. Nobody cares if you explain that you were on you way too or from the country club or beach. To them, you’re just being disrespectful, and that very important first impression has just been blown.

If you have the cash to spare, and it’s not expensive to do – then have a few business cards printed. I know you don’t have a company name or job title yet, but so what. The card is just something for you to hand to the people you network with so they have your telephone number, and name in their pockets when they leave. It looks professional, and it works a treat.

Procrastination is something every single person suffers from at some stage in their lives. Albeit to different degrees, and I’m sure there are those who procrastinate less than others. However, we all do it, and we should all find ways to resist procrastination whenever it rears its nasty little head.

Procrastination kills dreams. Fortunately, it only kills them later”

DC. West

Before doing anything else, please watch Tim Urban’s talk about procrastination on TED Talks at: [+ http://www.ted.com/talks/tim_urban_inside_the_mind_of_a_master_procrastinator+]. He conveys his message extremely well, and I believe we can all afford to spend the fifteen minutes watching it.

I don’t know why, but that short little talk by Tim’s really got me to look at myself, and work harder on my own procrastination. I had no idea I was using some of the most ridiculous excuses to put the important stuff off. I can honestly say it’s easily given me an extra 20% of my productivity back.

A quick recap:

Rule # 1 Make your CV count

Jobseeker's Rule Book - Fast track your job search using 7 simple rulws

there are several different types of jobseekers, and all of them have very unique needs: • The not so urgent - “I still live with my folks” jobseeker. • The all too common - “I’ve had enough of my shitty boss” jobseeker. • The other all too common - “I hate my job” jobseeker. • The more fortunate “I just need a change” jobseeker. • And the super urgent - “I’ve just been made redundant” jobseeker. Although we’re in a market that doesn’t really support the dreams and aspirations of those who just need a change – there are still many who have their eyes peeled 24/7 for better job opportunities out there. However, the most common jobseekers I come across lately are the super urgent “I’ve just been made redundant” one, and the all too common “I’ve had enough of my shitty boss” jobseeker. For most of these people, this is a seriously chaotic time in their lives, and what they need is something that’s going to bring just a little order to that chaos. Saying things to them like: “This could be a blessing in disguise”. Or “This may just be the best thing that ever happened to you” often makes them want to take a blow torch and burn your tongue off so you never say anything so ridiculous again. Of course, you may very well be 100% spot on in your analysis of their situation.
