Revealing The 5 Self-Restricting Job Search Approaches
Tuesday, July 10, 2012 | 5:30pm - 7:30pm | Atlanta Journal Constitution

When it comes to your approach in searching for a job, you want to restrict yourself as little as possible. However, most people end up (unknowingly) restricting themselves and put themselves into an ever tightening loop of activity that chokes the life out of their search. This is why so many people have given up in their job search and resigned themselves to the “reality that there are just no jobs out there”!

Nothing could be further from the truth – there are jobs out there, and people who are able to keep themselves from restricting their search, find them. It’s a matter of becoming aware of what these self-restricting approaches are and avoiding them. Unfortunately much of what the “common wisdom” is about how to approach a job search has self-restricting elements built right into it.

Come and learn from Greg Dillon what the 5 approaches are that may be restricting you from finding your next career position and get empowered to avoid them!
