The Cold Reality About Job Searches
By Marty Nemko
For most job seekers, you know that job search is on track if and only if:
Stage 1: You've identified 200 specific positions that you would accept (including positions already held by others). 100 if it's a growing field, 300 if it's retrenching.
Stage 2: You've contacted the incumbent and/or supervisor of each of those positions.
Stage 3: You've spoken with 6-10 people who work for a target employer whom you plan to contact again.
Stage 4: You're in ongoing dialogue with 6-10 potential employers.From Kate Wendleton, Founder, 5 O'Clock Club Career Centers.
