How To Answer The ‘Million Dollar’ Question: “I Want To Have A Career. What Should I Do?”
Lets face it – In today’s economy, you are up against a HUGE uphill battle when it comes to starting your career. Even if you figured out what you want your career to be, chances are you wouldn’t have a fighting chance at securing it because you don’t know how to promote yourself to employers.
It comes down to simply not having a lot of options to choose from in this job market. Sure there might be lots of job openings out there…but if that’s the case, why aren’t you hear anything from employers?
Well what I’m about to tell you might shock you…so put on your tough suit of armor because I’m not going to try to “save your feelings” about this. What I’m about to tell you is the TRUTH and if anyone tells you differently BITCH SLAP THEM AND RUN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!
Ok not really, but seriously…Here’s what most they aren’t telling you…
IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO PROMOTE YOURSELF TO EMPLOYERS…
YOU WONT HAVE A CAREER. PERIOD.
(Yeah I said it…)
I mean think about it… If you want to kick off your career after college you need to know how to PROMOTE yourself to hiring managers. If you want to get a raise and move up the career ladder, you need to know how to PROMOTE yourself to your supervisors. Even the dude who got a job from one of his daddy’s golf buddies had someone “promoting him” even if he didn’t do it himself. For most of us regular peeps who don’t have all the high-level connections, we rely on our own street smarts and for some it comes easier than it does others.
So why don’t employers just hire us? Why do we have to learn how to promote ourselves to employers?
Well there’s a long list of reasons…and most of them come from the misconceived perception that college grads these days (or “Millenials” as they call us) are:
- Too entitled
- Too lazy or unmotivated
- Too social
- Hard to manage
- Not enough experience
- Not open to feedback
- Not open to self-improvement
(Just check out my Free Report, “The 10 Most Dangerous Mistakes YOU Probably Make With Employers And What To Do About It…” and I’ll break it down for you…)
And all of these reasons are rooted from the same source:
Not knowing how to promote yourself as a candidate who ISN’T one of these types of Millenials.
Are you following me?
And this is the problem that has been plaguing millions of other college grads who are struggling to find something in this crippled job market.
So here’s what I’d do if you want to have a career that others would KILL for:
Learn how to PROMOTE yourself as an A-player.
Not only that but learn how to become an A-player as well. Period.
Why? Because A-player’s have something that many of us unemployed college grads can only dream about.
They have unlimited career OPTIONS.
They are sought-after by companies in EVERY industry. And they are among the top 5% of candidates out there. They can move between industries without any problems because they know how to network, and they ARE highly networked. They know how to MARKET themselves to employers and they know how to make their PERCEIVED value higher than 95% of the population.
Bottom line, if you want a great career, learn how to become an A-Player first! Then you’ll be able to select ANY career you want from a buffet of possibilities. Choose not to become one, and you’ll be forced to “settle” for all the “scraps” that no one else wants.
Don’t let life pass you by for another second. Building yourself to be an A-player is probably one of the most important things you can do for your career and life if you want to have the freedom to experience life instead of being forced into a situation that just “pays the bills”.
