The average unemployment rate here in the United States currently stands at 9.7%. In some states, it's as high as 14.1%. However, those are just the "official" numbers. Some say the "real" numbers are far more than that. The exact number of people who are unemployed probably doesn't really matter to you much, unless you're among them...
Here are three powerful tips for getting a job fast, regardless of what the "economy" is or isn't doing at any given point in time:
Powerful Tip #1 - Get Your Head Screwed on Straight
If you think the economy is "bad", it is. If you think there aren't any jobs, there aren't. If you think you won't get a job, you won't... it's that simple!
Here's the deal...
Regardless of what the apparent state of the "economy" is at any given point in time - good, bad, or indifferent - for those who are willing to work and give their employer far *more* in "use value" than they receive in "cash value", there are *always* jobs available.
Thus, if you're willing to *work* and provide your employer *value* far in excess of that for which you'd be paid, there *is* a job out there, right now, right this very moment, just sitting there with your name on it waiting for you to show up...
*Know* that there is and go find it!
Powerful Tip #2 - Treat Getting a Job as Your Full-Time Job
Not very long ago, a casual acquaintance of mine was complaining to me how he couldn't find a job no matter how hard he looked. Just out of curiosity, I asked him how many jobs he'd applied for in the last week...
Believe it or not...
No wonder he's unemployed. He was probably working one hour a week and getting paid for forty, when his employer finally smartened up.
Don't let that be you!
Powerful Tip #3 - Ask Not What Your Potential Employer Can Do for You, Ask What You Can Do for Your Potential Employer
Now, this may come as an absolute shock to you, but, though there may be an occasional exception here, your potential employer doesn't really give a rat's behind about you and/or your family. Sad, but true.
What they care a lot about is what you can do for *them*!
Therefore, rather than inquiring about what the pay and benefits are, you'd be far better served by finding out *exactly* what they need and/or want and *selling* them on how you can *more* than fill their need and/or want.
Well, there you have them. Three powerful tips for getting a job fast in any economy. Get your head screwed on straight, treat getting a job as your full-time job, find out what your potential employer needs and/or wants and *sell* them on how *you* can *more* than fill that need and/or want, and you won't be among the unemployed for long!
