Today's job search requires you to keep both hands on the wheel. Any passive approach to finding opportunities fails. It doesn't work. You must remain engaged throughout your career or face significant challenges shifting gears.

My friend Hannah Morgan, is back to talk what is not working in your job search. We discuss her article from last fall and recently on her blog and solutions to help your job search efforts.

I would love to hear your thoughts in one of three ways:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
  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

Try different strategies to achieve different results. The same old strategies yield the same results. Most job seekers would rather do what is easy than what is challenging. It's easier to applying to 100 job board announcements in a month.  It's harder to have 15-20 meaningful person-to-person conversations in a month's time.

Facing Unconscious Bias in Your Career and Life

For a long time, I have wanted Tony Chatman to come on my show. We have talked about many ideas over the last two years, but finally, a topic both of us are passionate about made it easy to start finalizing. 

This was recorded live in front of an audience of three as well as a Facebook Live stream (more people engaged the conversation via Facebook). I would like to thank the First Christian Church of Chicago along with the Greater Ashburn Community Development Corporation for hosting us. Hundreds saw the event during and after the video was posted on Facebook. I also published it on my YouTube page.

 We would love your input. Here's how you can contribute to the conversation:

  • Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
  • Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen
  • Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

Unconscious Bias:  Your Career and Workplace

Last week, I traveled to the University of North Georgia to present a talk about "Unconscious Bias."  I recorded it so I can share it with you at least a part of it. I talk about how it affects everyone in their career, life, and workplace. 

This is an important topic to me as it affects the job search. In the end, I hope we can create amicable and responsive dialogue to take out bias in the job search process. 

As always, I invite you to join the conversation. Here are three ways you can do so:

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