This post is about sharing job search objectives, yours and those of your network.
If you are not familiar with my Watchlyst, you may want to read the original blog post that introduced it. It’s all about the importance of sharing job leads. And I called it your #1 networking tool during job search. But basically it’s a tool to help you and me keep track of those in our network who are looking for their next great role. And if you go to the career downloads page, you can see how simple the idea is. And easy to use.
Sharing Job Search Objectives
It’s also a highly effective way of sharing job search objectives in a way that lets you align them with jobs you are seeing or hearing about via recruiters.
But today is a new day.
I’d like to formally invite you to join my personal Watchlyst.
When I see jobs (and I see a lot of them), I will be able to search my Watchlyst to see if you might be a fit. If so, I will send you a note. With a lead that might help.
In order for this to work, though, you need to tell me a few things about yourself and about your career goals. And I will ask you to be very specific. Whether you are a passive or an active job seeker, I think I can help.
By creating a personal version of the Watchlyst, you are forced through a process to define tight job search objectives. Once created, I will have them. And hopefully you can begin sharing this very specific and tangible data with your network. Better input delivers better leads.
So, what do you say? Would you like someone to keep an eye out for you? Are you ready to start sharing job search objectives?
If you’ve never focused on sharing job search objectives, you may want to print out the form first, practice and then come back when you feel good about your work. It will take some time to do it right!
