When you don’t know you are holding your job search back, it is hard to recognize what you could do different. Are you one of those people who has scoffed at hiring a career professional? I want to ask you to think deeply about why you would think that way.
- Is it because you learned how to write resumes in school and you figure it can’t be that hard?
- Is it because you don’t think it will be that hard to get new position?
- Is it because you think resumes are just a piece of paper?
- Is it because you never think about career but just the next job?
- Is it because you don’t see career marketing as necessary?
Could you be holding your job search back?
We often fail to hire professionals because we think our do-it-yourself options will work out just fine. Unfortunately, we don’t recognize that hiring those professionals will often avoid costly mistakes. Most people now hire someone to change their oil because it is more affordable and less messy to do so. I hire Becky, my hair stylist to cut and style my hair because when I even try to cut my bangs I end up with a less than presentable hair style. I’ve hired an accountant for the past few years instead of using Turbotax because with my business growth and the changes in the tax law, I feel more confident letting a professional make sure that everything is correct.
Hiring a career professional can mean that your job search will be shorter, your compensation plan will be higher, and your new role will be a better fit for you and bring you more joy. Is it worth your time and money to invest to secure the rebranding and professional advice that could change the rest of your life?
