We are all destined to go job-hunting
again. The only question is how soon.
The job-hunt now occurs some 5 --
9 times in most people's lives, with
two or three career-changes thrown
in, somewhere along the way, just to
keep things interesting. So the job-
hunt always awaits us (unless we are
retired or semi-retired).
There are people, of course, who
are good at job-hunting come rain
or come shine. "Why are they so
good at job-hunting?" here are three
1. Some people are just naturally
good at job-hunting.
It's no mystery why. As Howard Figler
points out in his book, The Complete
Job-Search Handbook, the job-hunt
requires four families of skills: self-
assessment skills, detective skills,
communication skills, and skills for
selling ourselves. Now, since some
people have jobs which demand those
same skills, if they are good at their
job, they will be good at job-hunting.
Same skills required, in both places.
They have a head start on the rest of
us; but of course the rest of us can
always learn those skills -- self-
assessment, detective work,
communication, and selling -- that
they already possess. (Figler's book,
or Parachute tell you how.)
2. People who are good at job-
hunting are willing to change
strategies, depending on the state
of the economy.
During good economic times, they
may stick to the strategies that require
the least work: resumes, agencies, and
ads or job postings.
But during hard times, or if the above
didn't work, people who are good at
job-hunting change their strategy and
pursue job-hunting methods that
require a lot more work. They spend
lots of time doing homework on
themselves, researching organizations
in detail, doing informational
interviewing, building their contacts,
and other methods that require work.
In other words, like species that
survive best in nature, people who are
good at job-hunting deliberately adapt
to a changing landscape. People who
are bad at job-hunting usually don't.
They tend to stay with the same
strategies during bad times and good.
Namely: resumes, agencies, and ads.
When this doesn't work, they usually
just do more of it. (Everyone's favorite
definition of insanity.) So, if 400
resumes didn't get them a job, they
send out 800. It does not occur to
them to change their strategy
altogether, in keeping with the
changing economic conditions.
3. People who are good at job-
hunting always have alternatives up
People who are not good at job-
hunting tend to fixate on just one way
of doing things.
a. In describing what they can do, they
use a job-title. Period. ("I'm an
b. In describing where they want to
work, they use a field-title. Period.
("In the computer field.")
c. In describing their target, they name large
organisations. Period. ("I want to work for
d. In describing how they choose particular
places, it's always places with known
vacancies. Period. ("I'm studying all the ads
and job postings on the Internet.")
e. In describing how they get into
organisations, they use one way only. Period.
("I'm sending them my resume.")
People who are good at job-hunting figure
out alternatives to each of the above. And
have them ready at hand. You could call it
"their fall-back position," or "Plan B."
a. Instead of just job-titles, they can name
their individual skills.
b. Instead of just field-titles, they can
describe their favorite interests.
c. Instead of just large organisations, they
target small organisations also.
d. Instead of just going after vacancies, they
go after any place that interests them.
e. Instead of just approaching organisations
through resumes, they approach them
through their personal contacts.
This is why they're good at job-hunting.
When one thing doesn't work, they just
switch over to the alternative.
Well, there you have the three secrets. If you
keep them firmly in mind, you can change
your own behaviour so that you too will be
good at job-hunting come rain or come shine.
