Finding a Job IS a Job!

It is important to have an agenda for each day of your job search so you can focus on the priorities most important to you.  You don’t want your email inbox to determine the level of results you will achieve each day.

Beware of your inbox!  It is often a simple organizing system for other people’s agendas.  It is easy to wake up and spend the first couple of hours each day answering or screening emails – but is that really allowing you to focus on priorities most important to you?

Before you even open your computer, take time to identify your priorities for the day and what you need to do to be the most productive in your job search.  I’m not advising you to avoid your email, I’m just suggesting that you identify your top priorities first and answer your incoming mail no more than two to three times each day.

Sitting behind a computer is easier than attending a job fair           – but not as effective
Sitting behind a computer is easier than networking calls               – but not as effective
Sitting behind a computer is easier than informational interviews   – but not as effective
Sitting behind a computer is easier than direct marketing yourself  – but not as effective
Sitting behind a computer is easier than following up by phone      – but not as effective

There are many incredible resources within our Career Portal that we want you to utilize, but these activities must be in line with your top priorities.  You can work very hard on your job search without results.  It’s time to get selfish with your time and only complete actions that give you the best chance of scheduling interviews that could lead to a job offer.  Don’t allow your job search agenda to be controlled by anyone else but YOU!

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Thanks Again!

    Bartol starts on Wednesday! Thanks for again turning over all the rocks for us. - FH Client  Thanks Again!
  • Amy is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does.

    Amy contacted me in a time where I was unhappy where I was but wasn’t doing anything to change it. She was very informative and if she didn’t have the information at hand, she got it. She revamped an old resume making it more about achievements than responsibilities. She coached me on interview tactics before multiple interviews and was there to talk about them afterwards. Every conversation we had felt more like a friendship than business. She is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does. She also helped boost my confidence through the entire interview progress. Whatever she is doing, she must be doing it right because I got the job! Thanks Amy for a life changing experience.
    Sincerely,
    Shawn Ware

  • I really appreciate Tim for all his handwork and consistency.

    He saw a lot of potential in me which allowed me to apply for a higher position than I had first intended. Although the process wasn't easy he was still very honest and trustworthy. I am very grateful to have received his guidance. I really appreciate Tim for all his handwork and consistency.
  • I want to thank Tim...

    ...for all the time he spent helping me acquire my new career. He has helped by assisting me with redesigning my resume and keeping in contact with me throughout the entire process.  His actions showed that he really cared and wanted the best for me. Thanks again, Dominic Almanza I want to thank Tim
  • I would 100% recommend Ross

    I cannot begin to thank Ross and Karen enough! without the two of them I wouldn't have even known about the position! The interview process was quick, easy and simple. After only a short week I was in a position I knew I was going to love forever and it was all thanks to them! Ross has been so good about following up with me even after being hired, asking how my experience has been, what hours I'm working etc. and to top it all off Ross even sent me a gift card thanking me for working with him. I would 100% recommend Ross to anyone looking for a career in the industry!
    Cheers,
