When searching for a new job, would you rather “chase after employers,” or have employers “chase after you?” The choice is YOURS, and you CAN conduct your job search in such a way that employers will take the first step by reaching out to you.

Traditional job search methods include sending out resumes, applying for jobs online, attending job fairs, contacting employers and recruiters, and of course – networking. All of these tasks, collectively, fall under the heading “Push Marketing.” This is because you’re “pushing” your message, hoping that someone will take notice. Even if you do make contact, however, you’ll still have to “convince” the employer of your worthiness. This is the downside of “Push Marketing.”

But when employers perceive you as an expert and discover your credibility “on their own,” they’ll tend to feel “pulled” toward you and even pursue you. This is the primary benefit of “Pull Marketing.”

YOU can be known as an expert, regardless of your professional background or level. The process begins with a fundamental shift in attitude, assumptions, and behavior. To succeed with “Pull Marketing,” you’ll need to:

  • Stop acting like an applicant, and start acting like an expert
  • Stop behaving like a candidate, and start behaving like a consultant
  • Stop being a job seeker, and start being a problem solver
  • Stop making it all about you/your needs, and start making it all about them/their needs

Don’t miss our unique seminar, where you’ll learn how to make this critical shift. You’ll discover the specific tactics, strategies, and tools to master “Pull Marketing” in your job search and long-term career management.

Your shift to “Pull Marketing” may require some extra time and effort “up front,” but the results will be worth it. This innovative approach offers you greater control over the entire hiring process. Best of all, you may never have to search for another job in your life!

My Career Transitions presents:

Topic: Taking Small Actions That Lead to Big Results

Speaker:  Marian Janes

Time: 9:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Location:  Virtual Event 

Sponsor: Penn State Great Valley Alumni Society

Registration for this FREE event will open soon. Registration will end November 11 at noon.

Another year has almost passed, and we find ourselves thinking once again, "What have I actually accomplished?" Although we all have a vision of what we hope to achieve, and a plan, as the year unfolds, we remain in relentless pursuit of our goals. What happens when the result we envision falls short of reality? Today’s volatile, uncertain, and complex world requires new ways of thinking and planning.

There is much power behind consistent small actions that lead to new habits that, in turn, cultivate big results. While thinking and dreaming big gives us something to strive for it causes overwhelm and stress as we relentlessly pursue our best intentions. 

Creating positive incremental change is easier than you think. The key is to fostering positive incremental growth is all in the approach.

In this webinar attendees will learn to:

  • Create sustainable momentum
  • Break through procrastination
  • Turn daunting tasks into manageable chunks that lead to significant progress.

Together we will explore the neuroscience of habit formation and the power behind micro-tasking.

Topics discussed include the following.

  • The catalyst of intention in setting realistic goals
  • Creating small tasks that fuel big goals
  • Pivoting around failure to ignite momentum
  • Taking action that fuels passion and purpose
  • Unlocking the door to sustainable behavior change
  • Tracking habits that lead to transformation
