The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

I have presented several interview experts and books in this podcast including Michelle Lederman's last interview book for veterans, Heroes Get Hired. Her latest book focuses on reframing the limiting beliefs preventing a confident presentation and standing out. The book also details what needs to be done after the interview process.

What are your interview challenges? I would love to hear your thoughts in one of three ways:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822
  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
  3. Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

If you are a career professional who advise job seekers and adds feedback whether it’s advice or a differing opinion, I will include a link in future show notes and read your comments on an upcoming show. Just let me know if it’s OK with you.

Cold-Calling as a Job Search Tool

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

Cold-calling sounds intimidating and most shy away from it but with the holidays coming up, it could be a passive strategy that Kimberly Robb Baker can work for you. There are few people in the office, who will have more time to open mail and actually read it (Mmmmm…)! In this day and age, you could stand out because people are still sending resumes instead of a brief letter as a tease to become interested in you.

Have you tried cold-calling before? Love to hear what you think! Here are a few ways you can provide feedback:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822
  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
  3. Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com
