‘IF TODAY WERE THE LAST DAY OF MY LIFE, WOULD I WANT TO DO WHAT I AM ABOUT TO DO TODAY?’
This simple quote from Steve Jobs says it all. Work is such a large part of our lives we ought to enjoy it. Not just suffer it to get the pay cheque and support our families, but really get a buzz, a kick from the actual work. It this isn't the case, you really have to ask yourself a question.
What would I really love to do?
Then you have a choice: stay where you are an die a little each day or make a change. I recommend the change option. Sure it's going to be difficult but I can assure you it will be worth it in the end.
A few years ago I made this tough choice and left corporate life to start my own business. It will admit it was tough and those following my blog would have read all about it. However, through all the trials and tribulations, I have not once regretted my decision. The fulfilment I receive everyday by helping people and doing the work that I love makes up for the long hours and inevitable challenges.
So how do you go about making this change? Glad you asked as that's what I do! Social Star is all about helping you understand your mission in life, building a digital brand to attract what you desire and leveraging your profile to get the job you really want. But we don't have all the answers, which is why we partner with others to give you the best information possible.
Next Thursday 30th April I am running a free webinar to help you get your dream job. I will provide the advice from the digital branding side and Chris Khor, Managing Director of Chorus Executive, will join me live to educate us all on the recruitment side. This is both sides of the coin for job search. How to build your brand to attract recruiters and companies to you and then how to ace the job process.
I want to lift the lid on the process of getting a job and reveal what really goes on once you leave the interview. There are 8 things I really want to explore:
1) How do you find out what job would fulfil me?
2) How do I build a profile that recruiters will resonate with?
3) Is it best to approach companies directly and how to do that?
4) How much does your resume matter in the process and how to make it stand out
5) Do recruiters really look at your LinkedIn profile and what do they want most
6) What else do recruiters look at online, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, my blog?
7) What should you do in job interviews to build engagement and report
8) How to follow up on the job and close the deal without seeming push or needy
Join Chris and myself for an hour which could literally change your life.
