Dear Friends:
Andrew Hudson


One of the top New Year's resolutions for many professionals is to find a new job. 

Consider this: About 70% of my 35,000 subscribers are currently employed. In other words, 7 out of 10 employees are either passively looking for new opportunities or are aggressively beginning their search. And considering the average length of tenure for an employee is 3.5 years, there's always a lot of job hopping going on.

There are many reasons folks want to switch jobs: they might be burnt out, they have lost respect for their boss, they are not making enough money, they simply don't like what they are doing or the company they are doing it for. 

If you're considering looking for a new job, here are some basic tips to think about.

1)  Move from thinking about it to committing to it.  The moment you commit to looking for a new job is also the moment you start seriously dedicating your valuable time to the job-seeking process.  Job seeking requires a commitment of time, energy and dedication.
 
2) If you haven't looked for a job in a long time, it is very different than the way it used to be; and, there are specific strategies dealing with online job boards, LinkedIn, etc., that will help get you noticed and a job offer. Don't become easily frustrated. Instead, recognize that what seems unfamiliar might require assistance from someone who understands these new strategies... and don't be afraid to seek help.

3) Many job seekers immediately think, "I'm looking for a job! I need a resume!"  Don't start working on your resume until you've spent some time identifying: a) What you want to do.  b) the strengths, skills, talents, experiences, accomplishments that prove you offer value to a new employer c) what kinds of companies/industries you will targeting.

To me, starting to write your resume before you do some of this leg work is kind of like packing for a vacation before you've decided where you want to go.

This advance work will be helpful in every touch point of the job search - from the resume, the cover letter, interviews, LinkedIn profiles, cold calling companies, etc.  In my practice working with job seekers, the most successful ones are the ones who are focused, confident and can easily talk about themselves and demonstrate true authenticity when meeting with future employers.

4) More than 70% of all new hires are from networking. Companies are looking for new employees through the networks of their current employees and job seekers are scratching on the doors of their networks and identifying new opportunities. It is the most important job-seeking tactic. Making lists of networks you can reach out to: friends, colleagues, industry contacts, former bosses, clients, vendors - anyone you can start letting know that you are thinking about looking for a new job.

5) Come up with a plan with established goals and routines that helps keep you motivated and seeing forward progress in you job search. It's easy to fall in the 'job seeking quicksand.'  There's a lot of rejection that occurs - you don't hear back from employers, you don't get the job offer after the interview, etc., etc.,  and it can be extremely hard on your self esteem. However, a plan and established goals and routines in your job search will make you a better job seeker (you'll be spending more time on things that work), you can celebrate reaching your goals and you'll feel as if you are making progress.

Nonprofit of the Week

Food Bank of the Rockies
 
One in seven Coloradans worry where their next meal will come from. These are people you meet every day - those with low wage jobs, children, seniors on fixed incomes, and those with health issues. Surprisingly, the homeless represent only 10% of our food recipients. Nearly half of the food we distribute feeds children.

Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Colorado. Founded in 1978, FBR was known as the Colorado Food Clearing House. Operating from a 900-square-foot schoolroom in Northwest Denver, the fledgling organization collected bread from a nearby Safeway store, our first food donor, and distributed it to Little Sisters of the Poor, our first partner agency.

Today, FBR has extended its reach across Northern Colorado, providing food and supplies to more than 800 hunger-relief programs. Since 1978, FBR has provided nearly 571 million pounds of food to our member agencies, which translates to nearly 476 million meals for people in need. Last year, we distributed 53.2 million pounds of food, enough to provide more than 121,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families in need. FBR is a member of Feeding America.

FBR has a staff of 112 employees at warehouses in Denver, Wyoming and the Western Slope. Additionally FBR has a pool of more than 12,000 volunteers, who last year donated 131,900 hours of time – the equivalent of 63 full-time employees!

We run an efficient organization, using less than 4 cents of every dollar for administration. 96 cents of every dollar contributed goes towards food distribution. And every dollar we receive provides four meals for our hungry neighbors.
