How To Land Your DREAM JOB – Fast!
Hey, in this post we’re going to go through five steps to landing your dream job.
So, stay tuned.

If you do love reading, let’s get back to it…
The First Step, the one which cannot be ignored, is your resume and cover letter.
I tend to think this is less important but it’s still important.
Your resume and cover letter are going to be really important when you are handing them over to people, so you want to hand them over on a one-on-one basis.
Like you want to be able to send one person your resume versus sending it into a system where everybody may or may not see it. OR it might go through an automated system, or a human might not ever see it.
Step Two: Opportunities.
Opportunities that you get are only as good as the process you have for getting them.
What’s your process like right now for getting interviews?
For getting meetings with people? For having conversations with people?
How many interviews and meetings have you had since you started looking for work?
So if it’s one or two, or maybe three in the last six months, or maybe it’s not that many. That tells me that your process for getting opportunities is either not as good as it could be or you haven’t been taking the action that you’ve needed to.
We need to fill up your pipeline with continuous opportunities if you’re serious about landing your dream role.
All right, Step Three: Interviews.
When you’re getting interviews, how are they going?
Even if you didn’t get the job, how did you feel about the interview?
And what could you improve for next time?
Are you evaluating the results you’re getting from the interviews?
Because that is going to speed up your learning process when you actually have to go to another interview. You’re going to gain a lot of valuable experience.
And the way that you think about the interviews is going to dictate how you show up and the results that you get.
Step Number Four is The Salary.
Have you done your research? Are you clear on your numbers?
Do you know how to have that conversation?
And depending on what they say, or how they approach the situation, are you comfortable with responding?
So there’s a lot of information about this and it can be confusing to know how to approach the situation.
So there is a step process for that as well, and I call it more of a tool belt. You want to have the tools you need, so if they say this or if they do this, then you say this.
And, at the end of the day, you don’t want it to be a difficult process, you want it to be a collaborative process, right, where each party feels like they got a fair deal.
And then, Step Number Five is thinking about setting yourself up for success right from the beginning.
So how are you gonna add value in that role right away?
And how are you gonna add value over the next 90 days?
And then you’re setting yourself up for where you’d like to see yourself in that company, in that role for the foreseeable future.
Where your next career steps are going to be, and planning for that now, and thinking about that now, because then when you start doing that, you can start to take action towards it now instead of just going to work every day and doing whatever comes upright.
You want to have a strategic plan for actually getting you to the next step in your career and getting to that next goal.
So if you want to go more in-depth on each one of these components of your job search, maybe one is working really well for you.
So, for example, maybe you are getting interviews but you’re not able to pass them.
Maybe you are not getting interviews at all and you’d like a better process to start getting more opportunities coming your way.
Most people I talk to, most clients I work with, they normally have one or two of the pieces working for them already, but they are missing the other pieces.
And they’re missing some of the key components that really ties everything together so that they can start to see traction and be really successful.
And that’s what I help you with.
So, if you’re interested in getting an in-depth plan for all those components, click below to sign up for the free workshop.
And we go in-depth on each and every one of them with concrete examples and everything you need to know to get started right away with your system.
You’ll identify what’s working for you right now, what isn’t working for you right now, and where you need to go from there.
So, there you have it, my friends.
Do you know one person who could benefit from the information in this post? If so, do your friend a favor and share this info with him/her.
And remember, the current system isn’t perfect, but you can outsmart it. I’m here to prove to you that you do have what it takes.
I’ll see you next time and I can’t wait!
In Work & Life
I’ve got your back
