Career Advisor: Start Today with New Energy for your Job Search!

Put new energy behind your job search starting today. The success or lack thereof that you have experienced in your job search is 100% based on the decisions you have made up until this very moment in time. If you want to improve the results you t continue to make the same decisions going forward. For the next ten days, conduct a time study of your job search activities.

Write down how many hours you dedicate daily to your search, how many resumes you submit, how much time you spend researching, how many
interviews or informational interviews you schedule, etc. Tally how much of your time was spent building your network or directly marketing yourself to hiring authorities in companies you have targeted – since these are the two
most effective ways to secure employment in this job market. Track the number
of people you added to your network daily. Also track the number of resumes you
submitted directly to hiring authorities in companies you have targeted. These
are two of the most important numbers to track in addition to the numbers of
interviews.

At the end of the ten day time study, compile the averages for each activity
per day. For instance, if you send out 8 resumes one day and 4 the next day
your two day average is 6 resumes. When you look at your daily averages for
each area of activity, you will know where you have to place more of your
attention in order to put new energy in our job search.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Francisco Chevez is one in a million!

    I would like to formally thank Francisco Chevez for helping me get this great District Manager position. Francisco was very professional from the beginning. He was persistent in his search for the perfect opportunity. He presented me with multiple job opportunities, all great. He made me feel as if I was his only client and his top priority. Even after starting the new job, he called back to check on me. Francisco is great at what he does and I’m glad I was paired with him.      

    Sincerely,

    Enzo Mera

  • Matt Lopez nailed it!

    I am thankful for the service that Matt Lopez provided on behalf of Patrice and Associates in finding me and matching me to an excellent job with an energy company in northern Virginia. Matt Lopez discussed the position and the company and advised me on the hiring process. Matt has the intuition to assess me the job candidate, and the employer regarding my personality and the corporate culture to make the match. Matt found a Company that has all the attributes that I have struggled over the past few years to find. I intend to do an excellent job for the Company that I am joining in October 2022. I plan to achieve my immediate objectives, the company’s goals and show that Patrice and Associated backed the right person for the job.                    

    Sincerely,

    Robert Chew

  • I can't thank Karl Busch enough!

    I recently relocated to South Carolina from New York.  At first I tried the usual big company name job search engines, I even reached out to a couple of recruiters but, Karl Busch at Patrice and Associates was the guy who got it done!  His guidance and advice along the way was invaluable.  I was able to secure an Executive Chef position at a high profile restaurant thanks to him.          

    Thank you!
