How Do I Increase My Chances of Finding a Job? | Job Search Radio

I will answer this and a sister question about how to increase your chances of finding a job.



I'm back today with another question someone has asked. The question is, "how do I increase my odds of finding a job?"

The word, "finding," is an interesting word. After all, it is different than, "getting a job.".

The way you increase your odds by talking to more people, reaching out to more folks that you know who can introduce you to others. Statistics say that 70% of all positions are filled by networking. 70% of those 70% or 49%, a result of connections you make during your job search to people that you don't know at the beginning of your job search.

You have to be talking to people that you know. People who are friends, people who may not be the obvious people for finding a job or getting a referral. But individuals who may be one step removed.

So the other question is increasing your odds of getting a job Which is different than finding a job.

The way you increase your odds is practicing all those different things that go into interviewing and working with someone who knows the job search process. Well, so that you don't make a mistake. Along the way. It's why coaching for job hunters is so valuable because most of you can advise from the wrong people. and online help you in your job search because there was great content there to help you with all the minutia of job hunting. Plus, if you have questions you can reach out to me and get advice all for a very low price.

So, again, Visit the site. Take a look around at what is publicly available, and, from there, join. I would be very happy to help you.

Again, to find a job, talk to lots of people. To get a job, practice all those different steps in the job search that seem so wild, but it's all part of the game.

Do you think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday. The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter has been a career coach and recruiter for what seems like one hundred years. is there to change that with great advice for job hunters—videos, my books and guides to job hunting, podcasts, articles, PLUS a community for you to ask questions of PLUS the ability to ask me questions where I function as your ally with no conflict of interest answering your questions.
