Talking Points:

Kevin DonlinKevin Donlin

Kevin:

  • Listen with an open mind. If you hear something you think you already know, don't get smug and say, "I know that," instead, ask yourself: "How well am I doing that?"... and if you hear something completely new, don't think, "That won't work for me," instead, ask yourself: "How could I make that work for me?"
  • Listen for just one idea you can use today.

Kevin: Overview of Topics:

  • The 3 Secrets of Guerrilla Job Hunters
  • The 4 essential elements of a Guerrilla Résumé
  • How to make job leads multiply like weeds by really networking
  • How to meet anybody on LinkedIn.com, even if you're "not connected"

David: The number one reason job seekers fail. The kiss of death with recruiters.

Peter: How do you go about repositioning yourself for job opportunities that exist?

Kevin: The 3 Secrets For Job Search Success:

  1. you need a definite job title or skill set in mind
  2. you need a shopping list of 10-20 employers ...
  3. need to follow a plan... the best plans are written and they imitate success... you need dates, specific tasks planned for each week, with heavy emphasis on meeting people each day... you need to find a job-search blueprint that has worked before, and model it, so that you can get working again faster

David: describes the 4 essential elements of a Guerrilla Résumé that can work for six-figure executives, entry-level grads, and everyone in between

Kevin: How to make job leads multiply like weeds by REALLY networking;

  • Instant networking (give the script to use when calling the most successful, most-connected person you know)
  • Schedule a meeting with 5 of the most successful, most-connected people you know; ask them, "what 3 things would help you do your job really well in the next 90 days?" bring something to help them with 1 of those 3 things, bring your Top 20 list, ask "What would you do if you were in my shoes?

David: Describes how to meet anyone on LinkedIn.com, even if you're "not connected"

Kevin: The #1 success trait of Guerrilla Job Hunters who get hired fast. It is speed to implement. When successful job hunters learn of a new job lead or tactic to use, they take action and get it done fast.

By contrast, the #1 trait of all UNsuccessful job hunters is that they are "but-heads" -- the first word out of their mouths when they learn of a new lead or tactic is But. (But I've already tried that … But that won't work for me … But I have to wait for my new business cards.)

Kevin: As we wrap up, I want to restate for emphasis the need for you to follow a written plan...

Kevin: if you'd like to make a change for the better and follow a proven roadmap that leads you to your next job, we invite you to give our Guerrilla Job Search Home Study Course a try.

Kevin: Stop thinking about how tough the job market is, and start thinking about what a tough job market demands. There has never been a worse time for business as usual. Business as usual is sure to fail, sure to disappoint, sure to choke off your dreams. That's why there has never been a better time to try something new. Your competitors in the job market right now are too afraid to invest money in new blueprints and tools.

But you get to make a choice. And it's never too late to choose optimism, to choose action, to choose excellence. The best thing is that it takes only a moment -— just one second -— to decide.
