The #1 Job Hunt Mistake You’re Making

Studies estimate that 70 – 85% of jobs are found through networking while according to Forbes less than 5% of jobs are found through job boards.

Most people spend tons of time on the job boards which is a big waste of time. So you NEED to network but don’t worry, it doesn’t have to mean going to millions of networking events and giving your elevator speech 100s of times.

You already have a network you’ve been building for years, but to get their help you have to let them know you need it.

Send an email to:

  • your family
  • high school friends
  • old teachers
  • or anyone that you have or have had a genuine relationship

The email needs to outlines what kind of job you’re looking for, where you want to live and ask if they know anyone in that field that they would be willing to connect your with. Your aunt’s best friend from high school might work at the company you want to get hired at.

Warm referrals are much more effective than cold calls and after sending the email out you’ll have a few people to hop on the phone with or meet for coffee! And soon you’ll be hearing about opportunities long before they make it to the job board!

Your dream job is coming!

I work with big hearted people who want to make a positive impact in the world. The only problem is: -Your career isn’t working -You wake up some days and don’t want to get out of bed -You’re stressed about paying the bills Career Coaching in the Forest teaches you how to make small shifts that will free up tons of energy for the things you really love. A life where you wake up to feeling a sense of purpose and easily pay the bills. I teach you how to approach making a career change in a way that is fun, easy and gets results :). I have over a decade of experience in the field of education and during my four years at an educational non-profit I hired enough contract staff to know what employers want and DON’T WANT in the job application process. So why did I start this? When I was 24, I was overwhelmed by my job working with vulnerable youth and fell apart. I moved to a yoga centre for 2 years to put myself back together. There I figured out what I was messing up at work and became a yoga and meditation teacher. Career Coaching in the Forest will help you to see the mistakes you’re making without having to move to a yoga centre! And use meditative practices to help you see where you need to go. I know exactly what it feels when something’s not right in your career and now I love helping others to make changes so their lives can become full of meaning and purpose again and so that you can make lots money too ;).
