My good friend and probably the greatest bloggers within the job search and profession area, Nick Corcodilos, at Ask the Headhunter, wrote yesterday in regards to the job search fallacy. His put up, The Job Provide Fallacy: A Lethal Assumption, is great (and well timed).
Per week or two in the past I used to be on a name with a good friend who had a job provide, turned in his discover at his present job, and the identical day the job provide was rescinded for budgetary causes. It was devastating, to say the least. As a result of they served a discover that they weren’t certified for unemployment. All as a result of they trusted the written provide. You assume it is actual, official, and one way or the other binding if it is written down, proper?
That is the place actual life, actual expectations, and actual penalties met the job provide fallacy.
Critically, learn Nick’s put up, The Job Provide Fallacy: A Lethal Assumption. Be sure you learn the feedback… there are some sensible concepts there, in addition to some warnings.
What’s the very first thing to do to keep away from the job provide fallacy?
CONTINUE LOOKING FOR JOBS. Preserve networking, preserve interviewing, contemplate a number of presents. Preserve going.
Nick talks in regards to the “Ask the Headhunter” recordsdata. Here is one of many JibberJobber recordsdata… somebody despatched me an e mail thanking me for creating JibberJobber after which mentioned they discovered their dream job: “May you delete my account?” I requested them in the event that they have been positive and did not they need to preserve all that info there for his or her subsequent job search, which statistically could be within the subsequent 2-5 years? “No thanks, that is my dream job and I am shut sufficient to retirement to make certain I will retire from this job.”
I used to be glad this individual discovered his dream job. I did as they requested and deleted his account. All of your contacts, log entries, contact info, context, and so forth. They disappeared. I hated doing it as a result of I usually preach about saving this info for “your subsequent job search.”
