  • Yo, Boomer, Retirement Lasts How Long?

    Oct 1 2019

    This is DREAM JOB DYNAMIC Episode 006, addressing a common question  I get from some of our more senior seekers. Recently I got an email from Timothy B. who said, “Hi, David. Many of my fellow Boomer friends are counting the hours to retirement and they don’t understand my reluctance to retire. How do you answer the question “Isn’t it exciting to be approaching retirement?” 

     

    I’ll tell you what Timothy, your question is common, so I thought I’d give you my two cents in this podcast episode and the blog we’re calling: Retirement lasts how long?” Stick around!

  • YOUR AGE IS AN ASSET, BOOMER, NOT AN ANCHOR!

    Sep 8 2019

    Our objective is to identify your selection of Dream Jobs, connect you with the Decision Makers, giving you  choices relative to your next and possibly best Career Boost yet. My hope is to point you in the right direction, using many of the tools and techniques that allowed me to land my own personally perfect dream job several years ago at the age of at the age of 64 ½!  

    In my recent adventure, by practicing what I teach, I was able to identify three companies with Construction Management opportunities. All three invited me to interview. All three responded immediately with offers of employment and the rest is a Dream Job Delight.  

    My point in sharing my story is to emphasize the point that there are many employers who know and appreciate the value of a Boomer who is still interested in Bringin’ it. That’s the real point of this conversation.  

    Many employers do actually realize that while being young, recently educated and IT proficient is a winning combination, it’s just not the solution for every situations and certainly not every job assignment. For many potential hiring decisions, youth and a fresh diploma, by itself, are simply not the deciding factor.

  • WHY MOST RESUMES ARE REJECTED BEFORE BEING READ BY A HUMAN

    Sep 3 2019
    This is DREAM JOB DYNAMIC, dedicated to DISCOVERING YOUR PERSONALLY PERFECT DREAM JOB in 7 SIMPLE STEPS!   Whether you’re  a BOOMER, a BEGINNER or a SOMEWHERE-IN-BETWEENER…,  Whether you’re plan is to:    RAMP UP YOUR ROUTINE EASE OFF THE GAS A BIT  OR TO TAKE  A SIDE ROAD IN A TOTALLY NEW DIRECTION…,  With a DREAM JOB DISCOVERY as your target, you’ll learn to  DEFINE IT!LOCATE IT!And LAND IT! If today’s title seems a tad bit negative, don’t be concerned. The REJECTION FACTOR is accurate, but it’s not the end of the story. The high probability that any given resume will be rejected, applies to everyone posted to any JOB SEARCH ENGINE. That’s actually rather depressing, but before you react to this reality, let’s dig a little deeper. It’s not all bad news! Before we get into the discussion of resumes, we need to consider the function of any JOB SEARCH ENGINE. They actually do their job quite nicely and provide valuable information for their clients. While you have a virtually unlimited selection of Search Engines to choose from, this point must be made very clear, right up front: AS THE JOB APPLICANT, YOU ARE NOT THEIR CUSTOMER! While your resume and personal job preferences are a key factor in this cyber-search system, the primary objective of every JOB SEARCH ENGINE is to provide acceptable candidates to fill positions for the businesses who are paying for their services. Companies pay hefty fees to gain access to the data banks of each engine and your personal details play a valuable, all be it, insignificant part in the grand scheme of things.  I promise the news gets better.   For all intents and purposes, the Search Engine is the VENDOR, a Business with a job opening is the paid CLIENT and you, my friend are the PRODUCT.  Without you (and millions like you) the system wouldn’t work. Trust me, there are many just like you, all looking for a dream connection.  We’re almost to the good part. The employers are generally happy to pay for the services, because it provides them with literally thousands of candidates for every open position. A critical challenge for any business is to maintain a full staff and to fill openings with qualified candidates ……IMMEDIATELY!   The Search Engine algorithm offers good news for the employer, BUT for the individual Job Seekers (present company included), not so much. I’m sure you can imagine, that with every open position, the odds against your profile being the chosen one is possibly a thousand to one against you. With those odds, it might as well be a million to one. Stick with me. There is a positive message in this. I promise. Standing up and stepping out of the crowd will be much easier than you might think.The critical difference between you and all the rest is that you and I will focus on attracting the attention of YOUR DREAM JOB BOSSand………you’re fellow seekers won’t. BOOM THAT! SHOTGUNS VS. LASERS In our discussion about maximizing your employment potential, we frequently refer to the difference between hunting with a shotgun (aka: SEARCH ENGINE) and zeroing in on your target DREAM JOB BOSS with a laser.  Shotgun job hunting will be the only plan for most of your fellow seekers. Many with great expectations will go wide with their search and cross their fingers, while waiting to be chosen. The first good news is that where their search ends is precisely where yours will shift into overdrive. So with that goal in mind, let’s charge up your laser and get focused. WARNING: PLAYING THE LOTTERY AND COUNTING ON IT ARE VERY DIFFERENT SCENARIOS!     MOST JOB SEEKERS BELIEVE THAT POSTING TO A JOB SEARCH ENGINE IS THEIR TICKET TO A DREAM JOB Most of the millions of job seekers will continue to assume that posting a resume is the end of the game.  You will learn as we continue, that while it’s definitely not the last step, neither is it the first step.  We’ll talk about the real starting point in an upcoming session, but I wanted to be sure that you didn’t launch into CYBER SEARCH MODE, before you made yourself DISCOVERABLE. Let’s take a moment to look at the way a search engine really works. Let’s check out the crowded and popular route and then analyze your options in more detail.   First things first, let’s look at the job search process as viewed by your competition. As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, the Standard Operating Procedure (S.O.P.) for the average, run of the mill job seeker is limited to a simple three to five  step process: 1. Dust off and update a previous resume. 2. Post said resume to a Search Engine. 3. Sit back with fingers crossed and wait for the phone to ring. 4…and WAIT 5…and WAIT! We call this the TRADITIONAL JOB SEARCH LOTTERY. Since there are a seemingly unlimited number of job seekers in the system and a smaller number of actual job opportunities, the employers are guaranteed a warm body to fill their personnel...
