You have done everything right. Tweaked the resume. Bought the new suit. Got a new hair cut. Networked with everyone …twice.
And your getting no call backs..why is that?? Buddy it’s not you..
It’s a time where you need to resource your network, a well groomed resume and a realistic outlook on the career you are seeking. At Benchmark we see countless candidates seeking pre recession salary levels when there are others equally qualified – willing to take less.
This is a time where ‘less is more’ – some money is better than no money. It’s also a great time to reassess your career path and consider upping your credentials by taking a class or online course related to your field. These types of certificates alone distinguish one candidate from another – it proves that you are willing to go the extra mile to ‘make it happen’.
Benchmark can talk to you about your options and suggest a path that may be best for you and your long range goals.
