October 3, 2018

The upward trend continues – though slightly. All indications point to continuing improvement in the economy as the 3:12 once again trended up over the 12:12 in August. Unemployment is down, job openings are up, although the continued pressure on companies to produce more with fewer employees continues.

As the result, the challenges remain for job seekers as they continue to look for new opportunities. As always, successful searches are all about the numbers. The more people you contact, the better chance you have of obtaining a new job. There are new opportunities – but, finding them remains difficult, putting the pressure on your ability to stay aggressive and reach out. This quarter focus on the word track. Track the number of contacts you make today (and every day!). Track the results of each call – no answer means call again tomorrow; left a message means call back in 2-3 weeks; no help means call in 6 months. Track the number of callbacks, your interviews, and offers. Review the gaps and look for opportunities to improve.

Perhaps your 30-second intro needs adjustment – keep it crisp and to the point, and make certain you ask for action. Maybe you need to contact people at a different time of the day. Study your track! Doing so will help determine your successes and your challenges, making adjustments as you go forward. Then execute the follow-up contact, maintaining a “borderline pesty” attitude. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain when you keep track of your activities and adjust to improve responses as you identify the need.
