My #1 Tip for Landing Your Dream Job

According to Forbes, less than 5% of jobs are found through job boards.

So if you’re looking for a new job you should only spend 5% of your time applying for jobs from job boards. So what should you do instead?

My number one tip for landing your dream job is…

Tell Everyone You Know About Your Dream Job AND Ask Them If They Know Someone in your Field

You never know what career your aunt’s best friend in high school ended up in so tell EVERYONE! Especially tell people who care about you because they’re the ones who will really make an effort!

Write an email that lays out everything you want:

– where you want to live
– what kind of company you want to work for
– what kind of position you want
– what your timeframe is, when you’d hope to start this position

And then copy and paste most of the email to all your close people.

This works on two levels, likely someone will know someone in your field AND it also helps you get really clear about what you really want.

Once you’re clear and send it out the universe, your friends and family will start to conspire to give you your dream job! 

And When Someone Says Yes…

Does your aunt’s best friend in fact work in your field? Ask the friend to go for coffee or hop on the phone with you and pick her brain about what it’s like to work in that field, what she likes best and what’s the hardest part of the job. Ask what she would recommend you do as someone who is interested in getting into the field. Also – ask her to let you know if any positions open up that you would be suitable for you. Hello… interview for your dream job ;)!

This person is doing you a big favour so make sure to thank them and pick up the bill!!

Studies estimate that 70 – 85% of jobs are found through networking. Job boards suck. Write the friend and family email instead!!

8 Steps to Land an Interview for Your Dream Job (3)

Author: Bryn Bamber

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 ;).
