On the other hand, the inspired job seekers … make connections. They reach out and connect with the companies they admire even if there is no job posting. They make connections between their past work and the role they want to fill. They connect the dots of their past experience and how relates to their passions. Most of all they connect with people, not just to get the job but because they want to form real relationships.
Most of us have tried both methods. I did in my recent job search as well.
In today’s world, it’s easier than ever to go online and apply, but it’s more important than ever to truly reach out and connect.
In most cases, people try to pull a rabbit out of the hat. That’s a problem that is very difficult to solve, and has the allure of being magical. On the other hand, have you ever heard of anyone try to pull a hat out of a rabbit.
Sounds impossible I know. I haven’t tried doing it either.
But maybe sometimes, it’s worth working on a problem that hasn’t been solved before. Sure it’s risky, but the reward is also exponentially bigger if it actually works.
The safest thing you can do is pick a path that everyone would choose But maybe greatness starts, by choosing a path that is the scariest. Changing up the problem. Turning the reality backwards. Trying something that nobody else would.
Just a thought.
