Considering a Different Target Market for your Job Search

Have you ever felt that you don’t know what you want to be when you grow up and you’re in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or 60’s?  Technology has eliminated many positions that were prevalent in the past, but technology has also been responsible for creating thousands of new jobs.  If you have been in your job search for over 90 days with little or no results, you may want to consider a different target market.  Now the question becomes – what field do you want to pursue?  Where would you be the happiest?   Many of your skills are transferrable to other professions i.e. communication skills, computer skills, work ethic, problem solving abilities etc.

It may be time for you to utilize assessment tools.  We have two entry level assessment tools in our Career Portal and two more advanced tools – the Color Assessment System.  We reviewed hundreds of assessment tools and were shocked at the accuracy of these Color Assessments.  In fact, the results were also verified by Career Builder, who used them for hundreds of thousands of their job seekers with tremendous accuracy.

Even if you plan to stay in your current profession or industry, these assessment tests provide information that will assist your search process.   Often the results help put new energy and enthusiasm in to your job search.  Many employers will hire before the end of this year so continue to put as much effort and energy into your job search as possible from now until the end of the year.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I would like to personally thank Ken for all his help in helping me to find a job. On June 1st I was released from my job of 11 years. I was unsure of what my next steps would be. I haven't been through an interview in years and I felt like I was unprepared. Ken took the time to help me step by step. He first gathered all my personal information and work history. He built a resume from all of that information and articulated my accomplishments in a way I never could have. He sent me tips on what to wear, questions to ask, and called after my interviews to see how it went. He gave me support and encouragement when I was at my absolute lowest. I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Thank you again Ken! Thanks, Again, KenGeneral Manager, Logan's Road House, Chattanooga TN
