This 2005 article highlights important information consistent with EEI's recommendations. It's a reality check and a wake-up call for anyone serious about getting ahead.
* In a tough job market, those looking for work need to set themselves apart. Nothing does this as well as a face-to-face meeting.
* ‘Many people have a hard time getting out of the starting gate in their search, ’ says John A. Challenger, chief executive officer of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, a top outplacement consulting organization.
* ‘There's an illusion that there has to be some agent, some source out there that has a pool of the best job opportunities, ’ he says. ‘And this agent will go to employers and market my candidacy for me. '
* But the hard truth is that job hunters must be their own advocates.
* ‘Even the most self-assured CEO doesn't like to go out and ask for a job and get rejected, ’ Challenger says. He suggests using ‘some aggressive or unconventional techniques . . . '
* ‘The goal is to contact an action person who will see candidates and extend the offer. Human resources personnel seldom make hiring decisions. '
This article confirms the 21st Century changes in employment marketplace expectations. They require “aggressive and unconventional" alternatives instead of old-fashioned methods.
