The job market is tough and you know it. You’ve been successful in past jobs and you are eager to start a new job. You know there is something good out there for you. If you can’t figure out why your job search is not generating interviews and job offers, learn from those who have done a successful job search.
9 times out of 10 the problem isn’t you, it’s your strategy.
“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
Have you ever felt liked you were doing everything right in your job search but success eludes you? There are at least 10 different steps to a successful job search — and if you miss any of them it could sabotage your chances for success. Everyone immediately focuses on updating their resume but did you know there are 3 critical steps before that? If you forget even one of them your search could be doomed.
You’re not alone. Many qualified job seekers make simple common mistakes sabotaging their hard work.
You send your resume to hundreds of companies sometimes in answer to posted job ads, sometimes blindly to a company you’d love to work for. It’s time consuming and tedious but you’re really motivated. Then, adding insult to injury, you get no response! Not even a thank you for your interest. It feels like no one wants you. Your confidence is waning. Your energy is depleting.
You’ve told all your friends and colleagues you’re looking for work. They’ve tried to be helpful but still you come up empty handed.
You’ve heard the statistic — over 80% of jobs are found through networking and by going to networking events. You go to several events. Everyone you meet at these networking events is looking for work too. It seems like they are the competition. How can they help you find work?
You’ve read the required, suggested job search books. They were helpful but you can’t remember all the details covered. Of the books you own, or borrowed, several were published a few years ago. You know they’re out of date since the latest technology, social networking tools and online resources are missing. One book is over 400 pages long. While you notice some good job search tips, the thought of reading the whole book is overwhelming. Besides — you’ve got to move forward quickly!
How do you do a successful job search that gets results?
One way is hiring a career coach or counselor. It takes time to find the right coach however. Coaching is highly personal and finding the right one is a job in itself. If you already have a relationship with a career coach then you’re on the right road. Even then they don’t do the work for you. You need to help them, help you. How do you take the lead when you’re unclear about how or what to do next?
Others leave their job search to a recruiter. That’s great if you have superb skills and your field is growing. Recruiters get paid to make a match between the prospective employee (you) and the employer. They will do their best for you but they haven’t got time to do the research to find a good fit for you. That is your job.
While you know the value of networking, you feel stuck. You don’t know how to get out of your “comfort zone”, or present yourself with impact. You avoid networking events.

Fast Track is a remarkably quick and thorough catalyst that will fortify your efforts and energy to find right-fit work again and again. I’ll recommend this ebook to my clients.
I thought the eBook was terrific. It has a good focus on the basics, which those of us who are rusty on job-hunting need to be reminded of, while it also provides good tips on additional tools that can be used. I liked how it is also broken into manageable steps that you can do in chunks. This keeps the job searching task from seeming like something that is insurmountable. I also think the templates will very useful tools. They not only cover the “must haves” but the things that can differentiate you as a candidate.
The Fast Track Job Search Guide is a fabulous resource for career counseling professionals as well as anyone who is making a career transition. It is practical, concise and informative, yet covers everything that is important to job search process. I highly recommend it.

The Fast Track Job Search Guide fills an essential, thus far unmet need: a concise set of expert instructions to the professional looking for a new position. Must-haves such as Achievement Focused resume, Career Commercial, Marketing Plan, and Problem Solution Result Templates are presented as sets of next actions lists that will rapidly set one on a new career path. These “Fast Track” actions are artfully combined with an introduction to the path of self-assessment and self-reliance. Active hyperlinks are placed where they are of immediate use and, like the e-book pages, are action web pages, not verbal general references. Having myself profited from Lenore Mewton’s teaching, I am impressed with this terse book that is both a robust, positive get-going manual for those actively looking, and a guide to the lifelong progress towards a fulfilling work life. I cannot recommend it enough.

I believe this is exactly the type of tool that job seekers can use to quickly get up to speed on a job search. In fact, when I was reviewing the draft, I had a copy on my desk and some of my colleagues asked for a copy…I hope that doesn’t mean they want to look for a new job!

I think the eBook delivers a concise, but very thorough overview of the job search process. I particularly like that you started with the career fitness checklist, which is an effective way to engage the reader, and included exercises and samples throughout the guide that are useful to job seekers at any professional level.

I have been out looking since January 31st and it has been extremely challenging. This is the longest stretch that I have ever gone without employment so your pithy eBook helped remind me to stick to the basics and use your logical and methodical process. (I loved that it was simple and to the point.) You are right! The part of the search that I omitted is the self assessment piece. You suggested getting three others to give you their evaluation of your strengths and weaknesses to get a 360 view which was quite helpful. It’s something I never thought to do. Thanks!
This guide is a gem. For those of us who intended to read “What Color is Your Parachute,” but never did, this guide is for us. Remember the expression “let your fingers do the walking”? Well, Alvah and Lenore have done that for today’s job seekers. This slim guide is well-organized, easy to read, and well balanced with a combination of exercises and templates to get you started and to help you find a rewarding position. Whether you are a first-time, mid-career, or changing-career job seeker, this guide has terrific value. (It’s also a good resource to use when you are in a hiring position.) The best part? Using the guide makes that dreaded getting started a lot easier, and fun! It also provides a good push that you’ll end up appreciating — and you’ll enjoy the process. The tools are targeted and flexible: use any one of them and you’ll immediately feel that you’re working toward your goal.
