It's Not about You, It's about Them

Job Search Today

There is no real "silver bullet" to find a job. If there were, all you would need would be an order blank, and not a handbook. The job search is about you, but the application of the job search is about them. Throughout this book, you will see the phrase "It is not about you, it is about them." You are a worthy person and should be doing a job that is your passion. However, that is not why companies and organizations hire people. People are hired because they have the skills that companies can use to either make a profit or complete their mission. Whether profit, nonprofit, or government position, the skill the company needs and that you offer must match to be assured consideration for the job. A job search is the hardest work for the poorest pay of any job you will ever do. If you are not spending as many hours in your job search as you spent doing your previous job, you will probably not find a job you will enjoy on the same level that you were accustomed to. C. Bruce Flanagan is the lead consultant for LEJ Unlimited. After a career as a nation-leading salesman of custom media, he launched a consulting career for job seekers. He has11 years of job search experience. He was president of Business and Profession Exchange (BPE), Central Indiana's leading networking group. With Bruce's leadership, BPE received publicity on multiple television stations, including a personal appearance by Bruce on Gerry Dick's television program, Inside INdiana Business. BPE was also the subject of a lead story in The Indianapolis Business Journal.

Avoiding vague tips like “leverage your contacts,” Dalton tells job-hunters exactly what to do and how to do it.

Edited by Ute-Christine Klehe and Edwin A.J. van Hooft, The Oxford Handbook of Job Loss and Job Search provides readers with one of the first comprehensive overviews of the latest research and empirical knowledge in the areas of job loss and job search. Multidisciplinary in nature, Klehe, van Hooft, and their contributing authors offer fascinating insight into the diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives from which job loss and job search have been studied, such as psychology, sociology, labor studies, and economics. Discussing the antecedents and consequences of job loss, as well as outside circumstances that may necessitate a more rigorous job hunt, this Handbook presents in-depth and up-to-date knowledge on the methods and processes of this important time in one's life. Further, it examines the unique circumstances faced by different populations during their job search, such as those working job-to-job, the unemployed, mature job seekers, international job seekers, and temporary employed workers. Job loss and unemployment are among the worst stressors individuals can encounter during their lifetimes. As a result, this Handbook concludes with a discussion of the various types of interventions developed to aid the unemployed. Further, it offers readers important insights and identifies best practices for both scholars and practitioners working in the areas of job loss, unemployment, career transitions, outplacement, and job search.
