Dear Friends:

Welcome back to another edition of Andrew Hudson's Jobs List with another great list of jobs for the week. 

Frustration, anxiety, anger, lack of motivation, rejection, fear of failure... these are just a few of the emotions you go through when you are looking for a job.  While it might seem sometimes that you are isolated and alone, these emotions are actually the normal part of the job seeking process; most job seekers reach this point some time during the job search.  Think about it, with something that is this important and personal, you are bound to face these types of emotional obstacles.

But always remember, these emotions don't define your strengths, your experiences, your backgrounds, skills and expertise. Keep your eye on the prize and never sway from the focus of who you truly are and the things that define what you have to offer to an employer.

You WILL get a job!
 

May and June Career Bootcamps Scheduled

Are you unemployed and feeling stuck in your job search?  Are you are recent college graduate who is trying to put your best foot forward as you start your new career?  Are you currently employed, but want to find a new job and simply need to brush up on your job seeking skills?  Or maybe you've been a stay-at-home parent for a few years and are worried about how to position yourself after being out of the active workforce.

No matter what your situation, if you are looking for help in your job search, I encourage you to attend an AH Jobs List Career Bootcamp.

Let's face it: job seeking has changed dramatically in the past 10 years; employers are using new technology to both screen and to proactively discover new talent.

I've just scheduled seven new AH Jobs List boot camps for May and June.  These 4-hour intensive job-seeking seminars are designed to give you the skills (and the confidence) in your job search. 

At an AH Jobs List Career Bootcamp, I cover the nuts and bolts of job seeking—from creating a personal brand, to drafting resumes and cover letters, to navigating social media, to job interviews to salary negotiations, and more.  You also learn new strategies from your fellow boot campers!

To find out more and to register, visit www.ahjlbootcamp.com.  We limit the number of participants for each boot camp and they tend to sell out quickly, so register soon!

Looking to increase your odds of finding a new job?
Volunteer for Junior Achievement.


Throughout my professional career, one of my most meaningful volunteer experiences was giving a few hours a week through the Junior Achievement program to teach a classroom of Montbello elementary school children about business, financial readiness, the economy and the variety of professions they can aspire to.

For job seekers, volunteering can help to keep your skills fresh, make new connections and provide you with a much needed break from the day-to-day anxiety of looking for a job.  Most importantly, studies show a direct correlation between volunteering and increasing your odds in finding a new job.

By bringing the real world into the classroom, Junior Achievement’s volunteer role models open students’ minds to their potential and give them the confidence to dream big.  They need your help. The current demand for Junior Achievement programs from Colorado educators far outweighs their existing supply of volunteers.

As a Junior Achievement volunteer, you will be part of a network of more than 5,000 volunteers from hundreds of local companies who are dedicated to helping young people make the connection between what they are learning in school and life after graduation.  Junior Achievement’s engaging hands-on activities make the concepts of financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship relevant and meaningful to students.

Junior Achievement volunteers inspire students to prepare for success; however, Junior Achievement also helps its volunteers be successful. The Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that promotes volunteerism, tracked more than 70,000 jobless people over a 10-year period and found that volunteering is associated with a 27% higher odds of employment.  The relationship between volunteering and employment holds true for all genders, races, ethnic categories, ages, locations, and unemployment rates.  Even if you are not unemployed, but are considering a move to a new job or career, volunteering for Junior Achievement can open new doors for you.

Employers particularly value skilled volunteer experiences that provide volunteers the opportunity to learn additional business concepts and develop professional skills. Junior Achievement volunteers have the opportunity to increase their proficiency in the following areas.

·         Public speaking
·         Motivational techniques
·         Managing a culturally diverse group of individuals
·         Problem solving
·         Providing directions
·         Setting goals and objectives
·         Giving constructive feedback and positive reinforcement

Many of today’s young people lack the tools and skills needed to tap their unlimited potential and achieve a bright future. That’s the bad news. The good news is you can help change this by volunteering with Junior Achievement. You can make a connection with a student that is rewarding for you and motivating for them by simply sharing your life lessons and showing that you care about their future.

Learn more about Junior Achievement by visiting www.JAColorado.org.  If you are ready to volunteer, contact Michelle Johnson at MJohnson@JAColorado.org.
 

So You've Lost Your Job.  What do you do now?
First thing:  STOP!  Don’t look for a new job… yet.


Losing a job is a traumatic experience under any circumstance.  Losing a job creates immediate fear, anxiety and worry.  Not only because of the loss of a paycheck, but because our identities are so closely tied to what we do for a living; it's WHO we are and WHAT we do!

And when a person loses a job, conventional wisdom says to immediately start looking for a new job. The resume gets dusted off, the job board power surfing begins, cover letters are being written and before you know it a full-blown ‘shot-gun’ job search is underway.  

Three months later after dozens of resumes have been sent out, hopes have been dashed, confidence is blown, and self esteem is lowered as the job search trudges on, with no interviews or job in sight.

What happened?

Often, professionals who have just lost a job rush into the job search way too quickly without giving themselves some time to take a deep breath, consider their options and better yet, look at the situation as an opportunity to do some soul searching and some self introspection about their careers and their lives.

Yes, I know… there are bills to be paid!  Mortgages, car payments, credit cards…this is not a time to dilly-dally! You need a job quickly!

But in my research, successful job seekers improve their chances of finding a new job when, even before they begin writing their resume, they invest a short amount of time in asking themselves some important questions:

1.    What do I want to do?  Not what SHOULD I be doing, but what do I WANT to do?  It is the most basic of questions, and if you are honest with yourself, your answer may even surprise you. Have your passions and your values guided your career choices in the past or have you got stuck in a hamster-wheel mentality of working in jobs where others have told you your skills best fit?  By answering this question honestly at the very beginning, you will start to eliminate a ton of frustration and begin a focused job search that is based on the the type of career and life you envision for yourself.

2.    What are the most important criteria for my next job?  Make a list of things ranging from things like salary, daily commute time, amount of travel, benefits, size of the company/team, etc. There are a lot of different things different people place importance on and it's critical for you to start developing your list of what’s important.

3.    What kind of company or organization do I want to work for?  Is it important for your future employer’s values to match your own?  Are there specific work environments you’ve experienced in the past that have allowed you to thrive?  What does that look like?  Is the company culture reflected in the things that are important to you?  Does the company provide you with opportunities that reflect your skills, your ambitions and opportunities to move ahead?

4.    What is the proudest moment of my career to date?  Was it a project or an assignment?  An accomplishment that resulted in a raise or a promotion?  It’s important to think of these moments because your proudest moments are usually full of examples of your tangible skills, talents and expertise working at full-throttle. Not only are they reminders of the types of situations you LIKE to be in, but they are also good anecdotes to explain how your background is of value to a future employer.

5.    What is my salary threshold?  In other words, let’s cut through the what I’m worth dilemma and answer the question head on: What’s the LEAST amount of money you will accept for a new position?  It’s important to think of it this way.  Let’s say you have a salary range that you believe is reflective of your education, your experience, and, of course, what you have been used to making. That’s good to know, but, what if the job you really want is going to offer you $5,000 less than the range you’ve come up with?  This situation comes up quite often and it is up to YOU to know when it is time to walk.

6.  Am I the right person to write my own resume?  According to a recent survey, 65% of candidates selected for interviews had professionally written resumes over self-written resumes.  Why?  Often, we are our own worst cheerleaders. We have a natural tendency to want be modest about our accomplishments, but a professional resume writer will demand that you take ownership for your accomplishments. We often don't recognize our skills, expertise, accomplishments that are important to highlight or that are valuable to future employers.  Professional resume writers know what recruiters are looking for and how best to present you in a resume format that will get a recruiter's attention and YOU a job!

BOTTOM LINE - By taking the time at the beginning of your job search to answer some important questions, you will immediately approach your job search with more determination and focus.
