I’ve seen this every January for 30 years – new company budgets, and new job seeker enthusiasm. “Let’s put last year behind us and make this year a great year!”  Sounds like a good idea, right? But it takes preparation for that attitude to become an effective plan of action.

At the first of the year lots of people will line up at the job search starting line. The gun will be pointed (hopefully up), the starter will shout those magic words “Ready, Set, GOOO!!!”………  And a few people will shoot out of the starting blocks, down the road and over the horizon on the way to their new career. They had a plan.

However from my experience, the minute the gun goes off, the vast majority of job seekers are going nowhere fast. They’ll stand up, look around in confusion and say “Hmmm, I’m not really sure where I’m going. And even if I did know where I was going, I don’t know how to get there.”

Meanwhile, the prepared folk are far ahead of the pack. They know who they are, and why they should be hired over anyone else.  They have a plan and they’re out executing it right now. How far behind are you? If this sounds like you, I can help. Call or email me for a free introductory appointment. And meanwhile, get your sneakers ready. You’re going to be using them soon.

Be you unapologetically!
