I thought it might be a good idea to point out what I have in mind for this blog.
This is my audience: Anyone seeking an employment opportunity that needs education on the process. That would include Entry-Level job seekers as well as new & recent college graduates.
Professional/Skilled-Trade workers who have tons of experience but no college degree. Too often these professionals are held back for lack of a piece of paper but in reality have more ability, experience and real-world sense that the graduate. Anyone who has ever served in the military knows the Master Sergeant/Second Lieutenant paradox. Enough said.
And then there is the Mature job seeker who hasn’t thought about job search in years–mostly because they have been doing their jobs!
This is my audience. But let me point out–I’m not a career coach. I’m not looking for clients. I’m am preaching to those 14 million people (actually about 28 million when you include the under-employed and those who have quit looking) who need help and need it now. My books and soon, an audio CD set I have just recorded, provide the best one-on-one coaching I can offer.
Regarding the ‘new and improved’ RG.com my intention is to add very little content to the website and instead to do all my ‘talking’ here. If you are interested in following what I think, see, read, feel about job search and employment in general across the country…this is the forum.
I have asked a couple of job search professionals who I admire if they would like to add their “2 cents” to the dialog and they have both agreed. Expect guest bloggers to join me here as their time allows. I’ll make introductions as they come on board.
Lastly I would like to welcome any Park University alumni who might drop by. I write a monthly column for my alma mater which I will post on their site and then add to my blog a week or so later. (You can see the first 3 columns I have written for Park below.)
Please drop by with comments and thoughts. We have a lot to talk about. The job situation is NOT going to get better for some time–regardless of who is in office. 95% of all jobs are created by small business. Until political leadership on all sides come together to make job creation viable, well…
