In this tight economy you may be
thinking to yourself, "I ll take any-
Don t. That s no way to get started.
When people use that line with me, I say:
you could be a nurse, an engineer, a bank
teller, a rocket scientist, a street sweeper,
or a professional clown? Of course not.
When you tell people "anything," you are
showing how desperate and unfocused
you are, and you are giving them no hints
in how they may be able to help you -
a person or an employer they might know
who needs someone with your skills. So
you are making your job search more dif-
ficult than it needs to be.
Perhaps total reinvention is in order?
Or, perhaps only a slight change of
industry or focus?
• The same job, but for a different
company in the same industry
• The same job, but for a company in
a different industry
• A similar job in the same industry
• A similar job in a different industry
• Or could you apply your best skills
to an entirely fresh field?
For example, book editors can jump
from one publisher to another. They can
shift to a position editing a magazine or
blog, or take their skills in a new direction,
such as speech writing for a corporation
or grant writing for a nonprofit. Maybe
teach English at a community college.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING?
I met a man who spent 30 years as
a copywriter in advertising, working at
just two agencies. This was the only
industry he knew until he was laid off.
Unemployed for six months, he realized
another full- time position in his field
was highly unlikely.
When we talked about the specific
tasks he liked best, without hesitation
he said he thrived on writing client
pitches to land new business, which
was just one of his many roles.
That s just what a local nonprofit organ-
isation needed: someone to head its fund-
raising communications efforts, which
included grant writing and solicitations of
donations from high--net worth individuals.
Same skill set, totally different industry.
Ask yourself if you re willing to put
your skills to use in another industry.
Would you be able to do marketing for
a wine company after having worked in
the marketing department of a children s
software manufacturer? Your answer
might very well be: quite possibly.
