Let them INSPIRE YOU! Take advantage of the Internet sea! We hear the numbers – unemployment rate, number applicants, number months to find a new position. It can get very discouraging, to say the least. Being one of over 1.7 billion members of a social network does not necessarily motivate me, either. But, that’s the half-empty cup perspective. Look at it this way: my potential reach is 1.7 billion people – and, one more connection will help get me there. So, thinking a bit smaller, LinkedIn has more than 225 million users, one of whom may be waiting for your call. Keep focused on the target – finding someone of influence who can make it happen. Spend 15 to 30 minutes a day and search for the right contact. It will happen. Not just one call…it takes 100 calls to ultimately obtain 1 interview. But, it will happen. Don’t let the numbers get in your way – make them work for you. It will happen!
