On LinkedIn I got this question from Hugi:
“Can we use it to find consulting gigs?”
I’m guessing Hugi is asking if he can use the Job Search Program to find consulting gigs. My answer, of course, is:
Yes, absolutely yes!
Not that I think this program is the answer to every question, but what is a consulting gig? It is a mini-job.
How do you get a consulting gig? Well, you might find out about it through a posting. Or through a network contact.
How can you proactively find out about consulting gigs? By having the right conversations with the right people.
Which is exactly what the Job Search Program is designed to do. I help you:
Have the right conversations with the right people.
The job search program uses the time-tested and proven tactic that every job seeker should use: the informational interview. Instead of just teaching you what an informational interview is, and then leaving you on your own, I walk with you for at least six weeks as you invite people, have the informational interviews, follow-up with them, and get more informational interviews (or, more of the right conversations with more of the right people) through referrals.
Networking. Accountability. Follow-up. All the normal high impact job search stuff. With my Job Search Program I help you, day-by-day, make progress in the right direction.
Whether you are just out of school, or looking for a mid-level job, or looking for an executive role, this program can help you have the right conversations with the right people. Not by giving you hours of instruction and a pat on the back… but with a systematic program that YOU CAN DO.
Is this for a contractor looking for gigs? Yes, it definitely is.
