Prepare Before You Ask

I was working with someone recently who was anxious about finding a job. While it is important to take action toward your goals, it’s critical that you are prepared. My acquaintance got off the phone with me and jumped in and asked a friend of his for a connection into a specific company. Unfortunately, even though my acquaintance received the referral into the company – he missed the mark.

While he is capable, qualified, and talented – he didn’t land the job because he failed to find out what the company needed and “sold” what they didn’t want or find relevant.

So the next time you have an opportunity, pause long enough to do your research, find the problem where you are the solution, and share the value you can provide accordingly.

Best regards,
Anita
