  Recommendations from Bob Clayton and The Career Warranty Plan:  
  • One of the biggest secrets in hiring for the best paying careers is that the one who gets the job is not necessarily the best, most qualified candidate.

  • Proactively manage your career. This can mean moving from a very mature industry, where the potential for big pay and benefits expired long ago when the company's products and services became a commodity, to a new industry where profits are strong and there truly are opportunities for employment advancement.

  • Changing companies is sometimes the only way to get a promotion, earn more money, and make all the skeletons in your closet magically disappear! Employment agencies and career coaches can help.

  • Professional football players just don't show up ten minutes early for the big game. They have practiced, been professionally coached, practiced some more, and have the confidence to make a winning performance. So take every opportunity to interview. Be prepared for any tough job interview questions.

  • Continuously develop the skill sets that will position you for the next opportunity. Any employer would love to have such a motivated person on their staff. Remember, it's not where you start, but where you finish that counts! Master job interview questions and answers.

  • Develop productive relationships with executive recruiters and employment agencies. They need your connections and occasional recommendations. Get yourself into their Rolodex as a good referral contact and they will remember you.

  • Coach your references. You know what you want the potential employer to hear about you, and you want your references to support this during your job search. They are your secret career link.

  • "I like him" are usually the words the hiring manager says to justify the decision.  It's not just the resume and career aptitude test.

  • Trade shows are another great networking opportunity. Everyone all in one place just waiting to meet you! But even if you can't make it to the convention floor in person, you can still use them as a career builder.

  • It's not what you have done, specifically, that really matters. It's what you have done that's relevant to a potential employer that counts.

  • Learn how to properly write a resume for specific employment opportunity. Make a resume appropriate for the opportunity.

  • Always remember, your career must contribute to your life, not the other way around.
