Job Search Focus for Success: Know What You Do NOT Want in a Job Amy L. Adler CEO
There is No Be-All, Know-All, Do-All Executive • While you need to be flexible about the work you will take on, you will not be interviewed if your unique selling proposition is that you can do anything. • Learn how to create effective parameters that efficiently focus your job search.

The Venn Diagram • The Venn diagram has three or four overlapping circles that identify sets of elements. • Some elements are in all sets, and some are in just one. • Think about your potential future jobs like these overlapping circles.

Think About Your Potential Future Positions • Are the positions you have chosen very much alike? • If so, your circles overlap significantly. • If they do not overlap, then you have a complex process of elimination before you. – You need to identify exactly what you do not want in a position. – These roles are ones you can eliminate.

Your Potential Future Positions • Are all of these ideal for you? • Do they overlap? • By how much? • The less they overlap, the more pruning you have to do to home in on your perfect role. Image courtesy of Stuart Miles / FreeDigitalPhotos.net http://www.fivestrengths.com
Pruning Roles • Determine which of the remaining job characteristics, perhaps the ones that fall into two job types, you can cut from will become your short list. • You should have a tightly nested or overlapping set of circles representing a very sharply focused set of job titles.

With Your Renewed Focus • You can now write an executive resume and craft an executive job search that positions you 100% to one target. • The benefits of this approach are many – You will be able to market yourself so compellingly for specific job functions in specific industries/company types/geographies, and so on. – A future hiring leader cannot help but recognize the solution to his problems in your candidacy.
