Introducing the “un-resume”
So there you are, sitting in front of a key networking contact. They have a fat Rolodex, (OK, so 500+ contacts on Linked-In) they are well respected, and you need their help.
Of course you know networking is the key to finding a great job in the Hidden Job Market. If you are like 98% of most job seekers, your go-to document in a networking meeting is your resume.
This can be a big mistake. You are looking for ideas, contacts and job leads, but give someone your resume in a networking meeting what you will get is lots of resume advice. “Make it two pages, make it one page, use a bigger font, have more white space, have more numbers, list more skills”. The advice is endless and contradictory.
In our book, “Unlock the Hidden Job Market: 6 Steps to a Successful Job Search When Times Are Tough”, we introduce a new “power tool” to energize your networking meetings and your job search. Chapter 18 describes this powerful and effective job search tool.
