The NonResume Plan How To Be A Job Search Winner

If you're busy looking for a new job, you've probably spent a lot of time preparing your resume. So, what's a "non-resume" plan? Wouldn't it be great if you could count on getting a good job without messing around with writing and re-writing your resume? Or making lists of employers and agencies to mail or email them to. Or posting it on job websites like Monster and HotJobs. Making your resume the focus of your job campaign condemns you to some serious disadvantages. For example, you're putting yourself right in the middle of enormous competition. Do you have idea how many hundreds of thousands of resumes are floating around in the job marketplace on any given day? Realistically, what chance do you have that yours is going to end up as a job offer? Slim to none.

Furthermore, if by some stroke of luck you should get invited for an interview, it's not going to be with the person who could be your next boss. You'll be screened by an HR staffer or a low-level management assistant. Not really the person you need to impress. So, what's a better way? Instead of focusing on your resume and what you used to do for someone else, you concentrate on identifying only those employers where there's a match between your interests and their needs. Then you follow an amazing procedure for meeting directly with those decision-makers called "career partners." When you employ this remarkable strategy you can be talking face-to-face with qualified managers in a matter of days.

This idea is so successful is because it's based on common sense. It follows the same basic rules as the business marketplace where you present yourself just like a desirable product. You learn how to run your job campaign like a small business. When you do, all sorts of exciting things start to happen. For instance you'll see action within hours.

And you could be entertaining a job offer in as little as two weeks. Running your job campaign like a small business is the answer to the frustration of trying to squeeze last century tactics into a whole new set of 21st Century expectations. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying you can't get a job the old-fashioned way .

. . but only at the risk of taking a long, long time. And then winding up settling for your next job rather than selecting it. Following the new 21st Century rules gives you complete control and puts you at the head of the pack.

You virtually eliminate the competition.
