What do you think are the 4 ways to make really smart career choices? Steve Tobak’s got the answer and I think he’s on the track. You need to take a look.
His main points are:
- Look at it as a business opportunity, not a job
- Evaluate the company like a Wall Street Anaylst or a VC
- Are they setting you up for success or failure?
- Is this what you really want to do?
He quotes: Steve Jobs
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown out your own inner voice.
This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. The only way to do great wok is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
And if you haven’t checked out this nice little slideshow over at AOL, then it’s time you did.
A job search can get quite frustrating these days, with so many people competing for too few openings. To ease the burden, AOL Jobs tracked down the 10 top companies that are hiring this week. From sales jobs to finance positions, full-time to part-time, these employers have a plethora of openings they’re looking to fill. Good luck job hunting!
Once you know where you want to work, check out this advice from Fins.com:
If you haven’t had an interview lately, it’s time to take a good look at your resume.
In tough economic times employers have to be selective about their hires and you have to stand out in the crowd.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression and, to employers, your resume is the first impression. Your resume must tell a compelling story about your career progression, highlight your accomplishments, focus on your strengths and reflect your personal brand. If it doesn’t do all these things, you won’t get a second chance.
Now that’s the intro to FINS Resume service. Now I love Fins.com for all the great articles and job leads – as a resource, you need to be all over that website.
