The Suck Less JOB SEARCH BLOG
If job boards are the way you get hired you wouldn't be here right now.
Look, you need a great job...
Applying for jobs online doesn't work. The percentage of jobs filled through job boards has declined over the last ten years. Google "percentage of jobs filled through job boards" and you will find a massive amount of data from the Wall Street Journal to US News and World Report to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. They all say the same thing, about 3-5% of open jobs are filled through job boards. Why is this number so low?
Here's the catch.
Really good companies, the companies you want to work for, hire people they know. They don't risk trying to fill critical roles by blasting ads online. You wouldn't do it, either. You would want to hire people you know.
So, what's the real story here?
How do job seekers like you get hired? They don't apply on job boards. Instead, they identify what they do better than anyone else. They figure out which companies want this thing that they do so well. Then, they tell those specific executives all about how they can help them achieve their business mission.
Simple Math: VALUE + PAIN POINT + MESSAGING = JOB OFFER.
Your unique value targeted to the companies that need it right now...BAM! Job offer.
How do you do this?
Let's figure out who wants you, what we need to do to get you offers and how long it will take to get those job offers. Schedule a chat and let's go for it!
I am just a guy standing in front of a job seeker asking them to let me help them get hired.
