Three Job Search Questions to Ask Yourself (VIDEO)

It is a lot easier to drive from Dallas to Montreal with a map, design a system with with written specifications, or play a game knowing its rules, right?

NOTE: instead of visiting the site. I mentioned in the podcast, visit


I'm going to ask you a series of questions that I believe will be helpful to you in framing your job search. I'm sure you'll have an answer to the 1st one. Most people I speak with don't have a clue about the 2nd or 3rd ones.

"What do you want to achieve in your career? What are your goals? Where are you trying to get to professionally? At the end of all this work that you are going to be doing, what's the outcome that you want to get you?"

Most people I talk to will give me a plausible answer, but when I test them a little bit further with the next question…

"Do you know what you need to know, like, what the steps are, to move from where you are now, to get there," they start to fumble a little bit. They start to wing it because they haven't really stopped to think about it.

Here's the 3rd one . . . "What's the plan? How are you going to get there from here? What are you going to do? What kind of work are you going to do? What kind of training are you going to need? Who is your mentor? What kind of departments will you need to work for? What kind of training/objectives Reagan need to have in order to accomplish it?" . That's where everything breaks down for almost everyone. That's because their objective is really to get a promotion at a place and work their way up the ladder and change jobs every once in a while and lead a relatively mundane existence.
