Jason Stewart, Senior Vice President of CgxJobs Announces The Five Key Principles That Successful Job Hunting Require
CgxJobs is Chicago’s leading career firm, which assists executives and professional job seekers. They announce a powerful job hunting approach requires five basic principles.
Identify your most marketable attributes and build a compelling communication strategy around them, with consistent basic themes.
Use professionally written resumes, biographies and letters that highlight your ability to contribute.
Pick your shots carefully, focusing on high-value tactics such as targeted mailings to CEO's or other senior decision makers.
Have a strategy for maximizing personal chemistry with information, and for using questions artfully in interviews.
Be prepared to negotiate a suitable offer while avoiding the common pitfalls inherent in the process.
"Remember, when interviewing," says Jason Stewart, Senior Vice President for CgxJobs,”your proposed contributions need to be substantial, and your communications need to focus on the employer's future and how specifically you might contribute. That requires the right information, something CGX provides its client.”
“What distinguishes you from your competition,” asks Stewart? “Why should an employer select you over the many other applicants for the same position?” “What added value do you bring?” According to CgxJobs, job seekers need to have credible and compelling answers to these questions, if they expect to prevail in today's highly competitive job market.
CgxJobs maintains that executive or professional job seekers today typically are unable to identify 50% of their own assets and skills, simply because they are too close to their own situation. That is why new clients are asked to complete a career history and marketability profile prior to launching their job search campaigns.
This tool enables CGX professional career advisors to identify 10 to 15 additional skills or distinguishing characteristics which, if properly communicated to employers, can often result in more offers in far less time than might otherwise be possible. Assets that job seekers frequently overlook include common things such as leadership skills or the ability to build, manage and motivate a team, as well as many more specific strengths, such as being able to shift priorities in rapidly changing situations.
