I know I should do more of this, especially when there is great news to share…
A good friend to ExploreYourCareer.com (and work/life fusion) has just found and started a new job
Art was one of the first people to sit our Job-Seeker’s Interview last year (you might find it interesting to take a look at his answers, particularly now he has landed this new role)
In the end it all happened in a flash (there were less than 2-weeks between first-contact and his start-date) but a quick turn-around like this hides a great deal of hard work and effort
Today I wanted to celebrate Art’s great result (and rightly so!) but I also wanted to celebrate every single one of those hard-won yards that played a part in this well deserved outcome
If you’re looking for a job right now a story like Art’s might catch your eye
Sure it has the happy ending we might all like to hear (at least every now and then) but I reckon there’s even more to take away from a personal job search story like this...
Art might not have known how it would come (or even where it would come from) but something in his interview answers tells us he knew a result was getting closer
Even when the going got tough (and when is it anything but tough on a job search today?), Art stayed positive, stuck to his task, remembered his value to employers and shared experiences (back and forth) in a small group he trusted
Art’s too modest - unlike me, I'm a blogger ;) - but he might forgive me for saying this in public one more time…
Good on you Art, you’ve earned this. Congratulations once again!
And all the very best for the future in your new job.
