A Job Seekers Letter to Santa

Dec 23 2009 in Uncategorized by Phil Rosenberg

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a good candidate this year…but you would already know that, wouldn’t you? I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but I got kind of short changed last Christmas, with a variety of bad sweaters, regifts, and Aunt Martha’s ten ton fruitcake.

Here’s what I’d like this year:

1. A killer “fishing resume”, complete with a personal branding statement, employer value statements, keywords, and a skills inventory

2. A clear concise personal brand, identifying my unique Subject Matter Expertise
3. A subscription to reCareered’s website – wait that’s free! (just sign up at http://reCareered.blogspot.com)
4. MORE INTERVIEWS!
5. A higher resume response rate
6. A great cover letter…no wait, you gave me one of those last year and employers don’t read them ! Instead, how about a great strategy for job search without cover letters .
7. A bigger, better network
8. A Resublog
9. A project plan for my job search
10. A new job!

Job seekers, please comment…What’s on your Christmas list this year?
