How do people really find work? Not thru standing in the “job search line” or tossing resumes into cyberspace. Job search, as all who have had to do it know, is not a rational process. The best resume simply does not win.
“Finding Work” takes a totally different approach. Instead of offering the same, tired advice; this book prompts individual action by using riveting stories and questions that will prompt the reader to start asking, “What if I did something different in my work search?
Revolving around “The Five,” five key principles for charting your own unique path, “Finding Work” delivers is attention grabbing stories that are actually fun to read.
•Tell Your Story - The greatest resume in the world can’t tell people who you are.
•Add Music - Use the elements of music-rhythm, harmony and melody to prompt new ways of thinking about how to differentiate yourself.
•Communitize – Stop networking. Start communitizing. Weave yourself into the fabric of every community you can. You’ll find out where you can fill a need from the inside, as a community member. Not as a networker.
•Solve a Mystery - What is it that you can do with such ease that others see as a mystery? Mysteries always indicate a need for a solution. What if you could fill that need, solve what appears to be a mystery to others - and get paid for it?
•Practice Stewardship- Take care of something bigger than you. Find a way to build a legacy in real time.
“Finding Work” is the missing piece in the connection between a person and work. No magic. No experts. This book is a prompt to find one’s own answer to “How do I find work when there are no jobs?”
