“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
Working smart in a job search is important. Instead of throwing resumes into the wind, create connections and start conversations with individuals who can help you discover and explore opportunities that may never be posted on job boards.
Areas for curiosity:
- Yourself; what are your goals? Where have you been and where do you want to go in your career?
- Others; network in groups that you might not ordinarily consider, ask questions during conversations, and…listen.
- The job; during an interview, ask open-ended questions, and create rapport with everyone in the room.
- Your community; explore opportunities by attending community events, get-togethers, networking events, fundraisers, etc.
