What You Can Do to Avoid the Herd Mentality
That So Many Las Vegas Job-Seekers Continue to Follow
It's very common to observe job-seekers getting caught up in what's
known as "following the herd mentality" when looking for
They search for jobs in the same ways everyone else does, not knowing
that there are numerous other strategies that they can use to significantly
increase their chances of landing a job.
This problem becomes compounded when job-seekers are misinformed
about where to look and how
to find a job in Las Vegas, Nevada.
All, too often, they write their resumes in the same way everyone
else does; not thinking about whether another format might work
better or not.
They unknowingly apply for the same jobs everyone else does, rather
than determining what they really want, what's really out there
and penetrating job opportunities most would never think about.
(We'll come back to this subject.)
Instead, they go for whatever looks safe, secure and they follow
numerous other jobs-seekers down the same path.
The end result is that these job-seekers following the herd blend
right in, and they are sitting ducks for employers who WILL NOT
hire them, and they don't even know it.
Even if they manage to get an interview, they're indistinguishable
from the other two dozen candidates who interviewed that same day.
There is a solution! You don't have to follow the herd to accelerate
the job search process when you know the system. Our proven system
If you're flexible, set realistic goals, and do what needs to be
done to distinguish you from the herd, you'll be well on your way
to landing a job that otherwise you could only dream of in Las Vegas
and throughout Southern Nevada.
Let us show you a proven process that will immediately put you
on the employers' hiring radar with lightening fast speed and show
you how to stand out from the crowd regardless of your pervious
Creating a path that distinguishes you from the hoards of candidates
applying for the same job as you is far easier and less time consuming
over the long-haul.
Employer's we've surveyed say they want potential employees to
stand out from the crowd and bring something to the table other
than just work experience.
Being unique has its advantages if you know how to communicate
your uniqueness in print, verbally and in person when you interview.
Also, knowing what you want using a proven process consistently
is perhaps the smartest thing you'll ever do in your lifetime. Before
we talk about that, let's come back to what you can do to avoid
following the heard:
Use a proven resume format and have it critiqued
by someone who knows what works.
Too many people use a boring, fill-in-the-blanks approach to writing
a resume. Software templates may seem helpful, but more often than
not, actually help you produce a boring, trite resume that will
fail to communicate what's important to potential employers.
Many job-seekers approach to resume writing is based on second-
hand information, opinions, and (unfortunately) feedback from sincere
family and friends who don't have objective insight about what really
The template resume will stand out like a sore thumb to interviewing
managers and may very well become an obstacle that prevents you
from being considered for employment.
All-too-often, the information is communicated about what you've
done, your experience (or lack thereof) and your objective. But,
where's the value proposition? What stimulates the resume screener
to hold on to your resume and purge the other ones?
The solution is to author your resume to overtly communicate your
skills, work experience and answer the big question, "How can
this person help our company succeed based on their work experience
and skill set?"
We strongly advise you to list all of your skills and work experience
which are relevant to the position you're applying for.
If defining a job objective doesn't work for your resume, try deriving
a profile that communicates your value proposition to the potential
Apply for jobs you're qualified for to at
least get your foot in the door.
All too often job seekers find themselves looking for only one
type of job based on their skills and work experience.
They've been told that a particular job is available at a good
company and it's the right job for them, and that it will make them
the most money and give them great benefits.
Very few think about whether or not that job will make them happy
in the long run. The truth is, if you're miserable in the job you're
working (regardless of pay and benefits), you'll ultimately leave
the job and move on.
Don't repeat the cycle over again on your next job.
You certainly won't give the job search process everything you
have if you're considering doing something you don't particularly
want to do.
Obviously, there may be times when you have to take a job you don't
like, but you should be planning your career as you gain more experience
in your chosen field
Follow through on the job-search-process and
If you don't know where to begin searching for a job that you'd
like to do, conduct your own self-assessment to figure out what
kind of work you like doing.
Once you know what you like doing, conduct research locally to
figure out what you want and what companies hire for the positions
you're qualified for. Then go for it!
Conduct your job search through different
Certainly, answering ads and sending out resumes can be useful,
but those methods should never be the only activities you participate
in during the job-search process.
Many uninformed Las Vegas job-seekers assume this is THE way to
land a job. Wrong! This is only one way. These are only two activities
out of many that you can perform to find employment in this unique
job market. We have a proven process you can follow to accelerate
the process beyond expectation.
Try networking, for instance, or doing informational interviews
at places you'd like to work. Ask about openings at companies you're
interested in, even if you're not sure they're hiring.
Following through and follow-up communication
The usual herd mentality is to not bother the potential employer
after submitting a resume or getting an interview. Stop this! You
must do more.
One of the best and most important steps you can take is to follow
through on everything you do. After you've sent out a resume, make
an inquiry after a few days have passed.
After an interview, make sure you know when you can expect to hear
from the interviewer and send out a thank you note that same day.
If the timeframe you were given comes and goes without hearing
anything, contact the interviewer and make an inquiry. Keep in contact
until you have either hit a complete dead-end or you have been given
directions to take other steps.
Following these simple steps will significantly accelerate the
