Instead of making a resolution to find your next career, Set a Goal! Resolutions are broken easily because, most times, people do not create a path to work with accountabilities and times to complete.

Utilize SCAMPS to Set Your Goal

In my speeches on Proper Goal Setting, I use the word SCAMPS to help my audience members properly set goals.  Setting a goal to find your next Career is important because you create the strategy and timeline to keep you on track.

S – Your goal to find your next career needs to be Specific with a Strategy to complete your goal. What skills do you want to use in your next career? List them. What companies need your skills? In many cases, it could be all companies – BUT which companies do you want to focus your search on? How do you plan to find a job with those companies (Strategy)? Note: online posts are not very effective.

C – Your goal needs to be Challenging. Our brains do not want to work on boring goals. Make your goal Challenging and…

A – Attainable. Our brains cannot be fooled into believing a goal is attainable if it is not possible. Therefore, you will not work on it.

M – Your goal needs to be Measurable. You need to know your progress on the successful completion to reach your goal. This enables you to know when you need to step up activity if you are falling behind.

P – Your goal must be Public, among the people who support you. If you tell someone your goal who does not support you, they will confidently tell you there is no way you will succeed. However, telling people who support you allows them to nicely hold you accountable for your actions to complete your goal.

S – Your goal needs a Specific End Date for completion of your goal. The two Ss are the bungee cord to hold SCAMPS together. Your Specific end date enables you to create your Strategy to Measure your progress to find your next career.

This is my 115th Television Interview where we discuss “Find a New Career With Proper Goal Setting” –

Once A Goal Is Properly Created

You simply “plug and play” your Specific Goal with your Strategy to find your new career by your Specific End Date.

What a Great Way to Kick off Your New Year! Now, it is not a matter of luck. It is a matter of Desire!  You can do it!

Networking is the best practice to find a new career!  I wrote my books to duplicate my efforts to assist you in your search. My expert experience as both a Recruiter and Career Coach gives me a perspective few professionals have. My Salary Negotiation script solves that pain point for most career seekers. To accelerate your #Jobsearch, please immediately click on this link to my recent book, Employee 5.0: Secrets Of A Successful Job Search In The New World Order  My book contains the 12 Steps to find a new career in a nice, orderly fashion that follows your sales process.  According to a newspaper review, “It is refreshing to find an author who speaks With you and not At you!” It also has the stories of people who did well – and some who did not. You may learn from both sides.

If you feel the need for professional Career Coaching, my business has 3 different packages. I work closely with Professionals in all three packages. The primary difference is the time and personal requirements.

  1. The first package is the 2 meetings Introductory Package.  The 2 meetings cover the basics of a Career Search.
  2. The second package is the 6 months Gold Package. This package provides you with Career Search guidance and Career Coaching for your first months in your new position.
  3. The third package is the Titanium package. Call me for details on this package because it is tailored specifically for the individual.

My Talent Attraction business model is to work with one company at a time and charge a flat monthly fee.  This enables me to become part of a company’s team for short or long periods.  Therefore, I know what is going on behind the curtain that candidates and authors outside of my field cannot see.

I am here to help you further each week.  Feel free to click on Follow US and Share at the bottom of our blog.
