1000 Resumes, One Job – Video 2: The Pareto Principle

The Pareto Principle–also known at the 80-20 Rule, the Vital Few or the Principle of Factor Sparsity–states that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

In your job search, you want to be one of the amazingly great . . . the vital few. You want to demonstrate that you are one of the 20% who will achieve the 80%.

Everything you do–your approach, your resume, your conversations, your manner of speech, and the way you dress for the interview–has to be top-notch. You have to demonstrate that you are the best candidate for the company. If you are not, you will not get hired.

Your transferable skills can be much more important that job-related skills. When you are changing jobs, careers or making the move from school to your first job, it’s important to focus more on your overall transferable skills.

Transferable skills are those skills that can be used in many different occupations, regardless of the type of job. They are universal skills and are the common denominator between your experiences and your future job. You can transfer them from one job to another with little or no effort on your part and without any additional training from your employer.

1000 Resumes, One Job – Video 7: SMART GOALS

Keep Goals Simple and SMART.

Specific:          Well defined – clear to understand.

Measurable:    Know if the goal is obtainable and know when it has been achieved

Agreed Upon:   Agreement with all people involved. You have to believe that you can do it – if you have a spouse/partner/children, they need to give you the space and support to do this.

Realistic:         Within the availability of resources, knowledge and time

Time Based:     Enough time to achieve the goal but not so much time that you will cool off from achieving this goal.

To quote renowned American philanthropist Elbert Hubbard:

“Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.”

While you are in the job-searching process, it’s important to think of goal setting in terms of activity goals and broad-based goals.

The internet has made the world a very small place.
Go to Google, Yahoo or Bing, type in your full name and see what comes up.
When search for myself, there are links to posts that I made all the way back in the early 90s, there are links to my MySpace page that I haven’t used in several years, links to Facebook, LinkedIn, businesses that I own or owned, businesses that I have managed or worked for. Frankly, it’s frightening.
Your on-line life and internet history is right there for people to see.
Interviewers and prospective employers can and will see a lot of your history in a matter on minutes.
They can learn how you talk, act, think, who you associate with and whether the information on your resume matches your internet history.
