Today I would like to share with you the steps to take in Outer Marketing.
First...Your Professional Promotion - Burn Your Resume!
"Don't rewrite that resume! I hate "the" resume. One size does not fit all, not in a bathing suit and not in a resume. Long before an employer meets you (if you can get that far) they will see your career profile. Burn your resume. My friend Nicole Spicer instructs those looking for a job to write a "Professional Promotional Profile." Take it seriously, take in your entire professional career and invest some time in writing it.
The Professional Promotional Profile is your work bible.
Create a timeline of your entire professional history. Go back to your very first job. Write down everything you have done since then.
Organize Your Professional Promotional Profile into action statements with the results whenever appropriate.
When you see or hear about a position you would like to apply for, you will pull (cut and paste) all your relevant experience off your PPP into specific document(s) for that position.
I will discuss the PPP in a later post! For more information about marketing yourself in your job search visit me on the Huffington Post.
