Career Hunting?

Job hunting without a criteria is madness.

Pocket Coach suggests some thoughts to minimize frustration:

Create a table in Word.
List your criteria that are deal breakers
List questions you may have regardless of industry.
What do you need to know about them?

Several quick questions:
• How do you determine “growth oriented companies”? They’re the likely ones to hire.
• Do you pre-select companies then go “fishing” on the social media sites? Caution here. Don’t publish anything that can come back to haunt you. Use strategic introductions to get noticed.
• What sources do you use for the base for your research? Business Journal, contacts, family?
• You’re doing well to contact people directly to introduce yourself.
• Do they invite you to call? What’s your sense of engagement—arms length?
• What curiosity factors have you set up about yourself? Any intrigue or just like the “others?” Consider how you self-describe. Use active and vibrant language.

Next time we’ll discuss what to look for on websites.
Happy hunting!



As a credentialed business coach and analyst, one of my primary functions is to work with individuals and company managers to clarify where they are presently, where they would like to advance, and what tools they have and need to achieve their desired outcome.

I use a variety of tools to assess perceptions including Platinum Rule instruments, my experience and training in assessing behavior. My preferred tool is the EQ-i®, emotional intelligence inventory. I have specialized training on the EQ-i® and DISC Inventories and access to multiple other sources including a company culture index. I prefer the EQ-i® because it is the least judgmental instrument I have found. It focuses on strengths and areas of development related to the goals set by the individual. For example, people are more likely to apply the EQ-i®’s information rather than label themselves by the Myers-Briggs categories.
