The 80/20 Guide to Finding a Job You Love
September 20th, 2011 - 19 Comments
Did you ever listen to that radio show Loveline? Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew would be fielding questions from teenagers about their sex lives, and invariably there would be some 16-year-old girl who would call up with her question:
“Uh…hi…my boyfriend is unemployed, bald, fat, and 24 years older than me. And he beats me. What do you think I should I do?”
Cue 1 million people simultaneously screaming “LEAVE HIM!!!” into their radios. It’s so obvious to us.
But to her, her question is unique.
Now, when I go on TV, 90% of the time, I get the same 7 questions:
“I’m in debt. What should I do?” … “No matter what I try, I can’t seem to save. What should I do?” …. “What should I do with my money to grow it?”
SAME QUESTIONS, OVER AND OVER!
But to them, their questions are unique.
But you’ll also notice that most of them were HIGHLY UNSPECIFIC. If you ask a dumb question like “How do I improve my resume?” expect a vague response back.
One of my goals is to show you how to ask the right questions. Asking the right questions is not sexy — I’ll never create a course about it or get written up in a newspaper for it. But if you still think that “How do I write a cover letter?” is your major barrier to finding a dream job, you’re missing the entire game that’s being played around you.
I have a presentation I put together called the “80/20 Guide to Finding a Job You Love.” I wasn’t going to release it yet, but I decided to open it up to you today.
You’ll find an hour of material you won’t find anywhere else, including:
- Where most of us waste our time on the job search
- The psychology of why we spend time on pointless job-hunt tasks
- Invisible Scripts that affect our behavior…without us even knowing
- The 3 most effective job hunting activities that will get 80% of the results in 20% of the time (and that most people don’t do at all).
When it comes to finding a dream job, most of us ask all the wrong questions. You could have the perfect resume, but if you’re submitting it through Monster.com, you’re still competing with thousands of other people with outstanding resumes.
- How can you shortcut the entire job hunt?
- How can you find out what you love — and then find jobs that let you do just that?
- And how do you get paid what you deserve?
300,000+ people read my blog and emails every month, looking for a richer life. Finding a job you love is a huge piece of any “rich” life. I want to help.
So instead of writing some vapid “Top 10″ blog post, I decided to go in-depth and share detailed strategies, mindsets, and stories about how to short-circuit the process that so many people waste time on. And like the rest of the material on IWT, it’s been tested, refined, and optimized before it ever saw the light of day.
Though this is premium material that I could charge for, I’m making it available to you free because I want you to start thinking about how to apply IWT principles to your search for a dream job. And I know you can find one — even in this economy — in the next few months. It’s eminently possible.
First, here’s a 5-minute sample, which I think will surprise you when you analyze what works vs. what doesn’t work:
Now, get the full 46-minute video…I think you’ll enjoy it.
One of my students asked this amazing question, and I loved it so much that I want to share it ...Read More
