Find a job with ZERO effortSeptember 8th, 2014
By Sam Kunz
Catchy title. Too bad it can’t happen.
Then again, maybe it’s not.
Don’t we all want to be hired because we have worked hard building skills and accumulating relevant experiences that make us the most desirable candidate for the position?
Don’t we all want to work for an employer who values the hard work we’ve put into building our credentials, developing professionally, and honing our talents? Not to mention the effort we put into our application process, our materials, preparation for the interview, even the professional way we present ourselves.
Don’t we want to be appreciated for having drive.
Sounds pretty good. Also sounds pretty reasonable. The trick to making these things reality is twofold. First become that kind of persona that has all of these skills. Secondly, do your research and find the companies, businesses, and employers that share you values; that appreciate all that you have done.
Of course nothing is for certain. Despite all your hard work, preparation, and research, you still might not get the job. But never, ever, ever make it easy for them to say “no.”
If you are looking for a meaningful career in an environment where you are truly valued, zero effort simply is not an option.
