Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters

"Time isn't money. Time is everything." - Dr. Bernie Siegel

Want to find a job faster?

You can, if you use your time better.

You and I  each get 24 hours in a day.

How you use this precious resource largely determines your success in finding a job ... and anything else you do.

If you're unhappy with how you manage your time, why not try a different approach and manage your energy instead?

Let me explain ...

While we all get an equal amount of hours in a day, not all hours have equal value.

Some of us are morning people and perform at our peak before noon. Others are afternoon or evening people, and have more energy at those times of day.

Why not take advantage of your natural tendencies and schedule your important tasks for when you'll have the most energy?

This is like riding a horse in the direction it wants to go.

If you don't know when your hours of peak performance are, find out. Carry a small notebook or voice recorder (a smart phone has both) and record those times when you feel energized, as well as times when you feel sluggish.

Then, schedule next week's job search activities during your peak-performance times.

You will likely find that when you manage your energy effectively, the hours will take care of themselves -- you'll get more done and find work faster as a result.

Learn Tony's methodology for defining success for yourself

I am a big fan of Tony Robbins. His programs "Personal Power", "Get the Edge", and his books "Unlimited Power" and "Awaken The Giant Within" are always close to my heart. I've learned so much about myself and I will recommend to anyone who wants to achieve his dreams and be happy.

In this film, Tony is sharing a step-by-step process for:

  • clarifying your values
  • prioritizing what matter most
  • making sure that your actions are driven by a greater purpose.
Do the exercises and enjoy! Be happy!

"We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish." - Anthony Robbins

Career Guide for Newcomers

The second edition of No Canadian Experience, Eh? A Career Success Guide for New Immigrants is now available. Career Coach and Author, Daisy Wright, whose work has been published in several career books, first published the book in 2007. At the time, it was the first-of-its-kind career guide that addressed the job search plight of internationally educated professionals and new immigrants. One publisher remarked that he was “pleasantly surprised to see so much valuable information for a segment of the population that was largely ignored in regards to the job search.”

While the book addresses job search basics such as résumé and cover letter design, and how to prepare and master the interview, how to build professional networks, access the hidden job market, and engage in small talk, Wright invited 16 top career experts, (13 from Canada and 3 from the United States) to contribute their individual expertise to enhance the value of this edition. New topic areas include personal branding, social media, on-boarding, green careers, leadership, practice firms, stress management, career assessments, self-employment as a career option, consulting and time management.
