The First And Most Important Step To Landing Your Dream Role
You say you’re ready to move into a leadership role. What are you doing about it?
Scrolling job ads on your lunch break. Tweaking your resume in between calls.
There’s always an excuse for not applying.
Too much of the same. Not enough of a challenge. Excessive commute required.
There’s one reason nothing seems right for you.
You’re chasing more than change.
You want a superior life. Total career satisfaction. Financial stability. Work/life balance.
You want to live to your full potential.
But you missed the first crucial step. Until you can approach your search from a place of clarity, you’ll just keep going around in circles. Wasting your time.
You need to get clear on what you really want in order to shape your authentic personal brand and job search strategy.
The first step is to sit back and reflect on the following points.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Be honest with yourself. Look at what you’re actually brilliant at, not at what you wish you were. Are you able to improve on your weaknesses?
What you really like and dislike?
You might be great at writing proposals but if you hate doing it don’t apply for those jobs.
Maybe research is your passion but you haven’t been given the scope to develop your skills.
You tend to apply for jobs you’re qualified for but often fail to consider whether you’ll actually like doing them
You spend approximately five days a week, fifty weeks a year at work. Do something you enjoy.
What motivates you?
It’s easy to think a pay increase will make you feel better about getting out of bed in the morning.
Fact is, if your job makes you miserable you’ll still face that daily battle.
Take some time to evaluate your entire working history.
What was happening on those days you wished the bubonic plague would strike you down so you didn’t have to show up?
Or the days you walked into the office enthusiastic and confident?
When we skim over our past experiences we do ourselves a disservice.
Clearly define what it is you want and opportunities will appear.
I’ve helped hundreds of senior managers land the roles they’ve been striving toward.
Every single one started by getting clear on what is that really made them satisfied in their job.
Stop stagnating. It’s time to move onwards and upwards.
I can help you find the clarity you need.
