    Ep. 25 How To Get Job Opportunities Knocking On Your Door

    Ep. 25 How To Get Job Opportunities Knocking On Your Door

    *Knock, Knock!*

    Who's there?

    A job opportunity!
    How fun would that be right to just know that job opportunities are here just right in front of you. Trust me they are, you just need a bit of that magical guidance to get you there.

    I talk a lot about getting in front of the decision-makers, you know networking. That's honestly so important. Job searching, growing, getting promotions it's not like how it was back then. It's so different now.

    I was looking back 8 years ago where I was job searching like crazy and got so many responses from employers. Now... hah it REALLY does take the strategy and time and of course patience.
    But hey, that's what I'm here for.


    In this episode we go over:

    1) Networking on LinkedIn
    2) Building Relationships
    3) What can recruiters do for you?

    Ep. 24 Which Job is Right for Me?

    Ever has yourself, 'which job is right for me'

    I think this is something that comes to our minds not just at the beginning of our careers but anytime at all. We can be 5 years into our career and have this thought come to mind.

    I think though, COVID19 has brought a lot of this thought. It's the clarity and realization of what's important.

    I've told myself quite a few times that I won't do certain things. Haven't you before? And maybe those nos in your life or the thoughts come into your life as the most positive thing.

    In this episode we go over:

    1) Your life/career purpose
    2) The work culture and your boss
    3) Is location important to job happiness?

    Ep. 22 Performance Plans and the Right Way to Handle them as a Manager

    I know as an employee a lot of us face the fear of being on a PIP or even the thought of having a manager handle behavior a specific way.

    Like we need more of the anxiety, it's been rough going through so much within the world that the experience of facing something like this can just cause more to us.

    Also as a manager, there is a misconception regarding performance reviews.

    It's given a bad name and used in a negative way.

    It's important to understand and create awareness about the importance of performance reviews and how it can shape and benefit employees.

    This should be a positive experience for an employee to make them aware of what needs to be adjusted so they can work together with you and grow. 
    In this podcast episode we discuss:

    1) Avoiding the big misunderstandings
    2) How to organize management and employee success
    3) Developing plans & Goals

    Ep. 21 Why You Shouldn't Rush Your Job Search

    Ep. 21 Why You Shouldn't Rush Your Job Search

    I get the feeling of being tired of where you are right now.  How long you even spend on your job search is just as important. The time you spend shows value in your documents, and what you do.

    There's also more than the quick apply, there's the strategy, the networking, the follow-up.

    In this episode, we cover the side effects of rushing and getting out of your comfort zone.  The structure on what that also looks like.
