We often hear from job seekers, “I’m so tired of hearing that I’m ‘not a fit’. What does that even mean? This feedback does not help me know what to change on my resume, during my interview or even during my follow up process!”

This is a very common complaint from individuals conducting a search in today’s very competitive job market. Employers have learned if they tell you that you are not a fit, that is not something you can attempt to overcome.

They have shared that they are tired of arguing with people they don’t hire. When they give them a specific reason why they were screened out, most job seekers become very defensive, disagree with the hiring authority and basically tell them that they are wrong.

As a result, hiring authorities are simply saying “You’re not a fit.” The best thing you could do is ask how you could improve your interviewing, in the future. “I’m disappointed that I did not get your job but would really appreciate your advice. What could I do differently in the way I’m presenting myself or during my job interview?” When you ask someone for advice, they are not put on the defensive and will often give you great advice.

Re-THINK! The Brand Called YOU: Your Personal Branding Session

Wednesday, April 10th @ 2:00 pm EST (11:00 am PST, 12:00 pm MST, am 1:00 pm CST)

What is your brand? You have a brand whether you’re aware of it or not. The brand is called “YOU” and it’s one of the most important parts of the whole job search process. It’s crucial to be able to distinguish yourself from every other candidate but how do you do that? You must discover your natural ability to communicate and articulate why the company would benefit from hiring you.

What is your character, track record, and reputation?

What can they count on if they hire you?

Who is this YOU they are interviewing?

Why is this so difficult? Bottom line, through a series of questions during the interview, the hiring manager hopes to get to know the confidence in you. They actually HOPE you are the one. Yet many people struggle to talk positively about themselves. It’s strange to think we have to learn how to relate to ourselves in a positive way, yet this is the case with so many. We all have inner conflicts. When you have difficulty talking about yourself, you’re less likely to openly share about yourself during the interview or while networking. The confidence isn’t there and so often the job offer doesn’t happen. 

However, this can all change instantly. When you change your inner message, the outer message becomes natural. We are going to address all of this. In this webinar, you will learn:

To recognize polish the diamond. (That diamond is you)

To instantly change the way you think about YOU

To boost your self-confidence so you can know your full value

To compile all of your good habits, accomplishments, strengths, and what others value in you.

When you learn to effectively deal with all the negative thoughts that show up you’ll agree that the “mental-ego- chatter” is the only thing clouding our ability to see our full value. 

Come join us for this very uplifting conversation and Re-THINK the Brand called YOU. You’ll walk away with the edge to win!
