❝How do I get found by recruiters?❞ Starts with keywords. Works in 1 with #ONO. See #ProfilePopUp 214… 🎦
PLUS some ONO myths BUSTED…
❝Recruiters skip those Open to New Opportunities.❞ Really?!! 85% of us are open. #Recruiters know it. So they’re searching us all the time! Yet some recruiters have bias, ghost or just misunderstand… and are CLOSED to Opportunities!
❝If you’re working, you MUST be good…❞ As a consultant, I’ve replaced full-time (working) people on projects – who weren’t getting the job done.
❝If you’re ONO, you’re desperate…❞ Ever been out of a job beyond your control? I have.
❝Only use the official #LinkedIn Open to New Opportunities setting…” !Oh that’s right, turn on the HIDDEN Open to New Opportunities setting and THEN the recruiters will come… Field of DREAMS that only top-level recruiters ever play!
❝When I see a profile with ONO (Open to New Opportunities), I skip them…❞ No wonder you can’t find candidates!
Many of us start chasing the dream on the left of the big circle, focusing on an education without a clear picture of what we want to do for work. This gives us TALENTS which we then use to seek a PROFESSION.
We follow “down the right path”, looking for a job that PAYS. We have to pay the bills and all those student loans!
As we master our craft, we start up in Pursuit of a better VOCATION, as we finally get a sense of what the world really NEEDS.
Finally, we tire of the rat race and look for more of a PURPOSE (MISSION) and PASSION to address our true LOVES.
What’s Your Point?
Now, this is how most people take the path. It’s also why most of us feel like we are circling the drain, never quite hitting the mark, or missing the point. Which are YOU doing?
Are you one of the lucky few, born with a green thumb or an artist’s eye, who followed your passions and didn’t care about money?
Did this all seem obvious and silly to you, as you figured it all out without even going to school? Maybe you are one of the lucky 15% who doesn’t hate their work?
What do YOU think?
No matter who you are, your experiences or your timing, I’d LOVE to hear what you think about this topic! What do you like best about #Ikigai?
Print the picture and brainstorm each main circle TOPIC and then look for overlap!
We usually peak during the morning, drop swiftly in the afternoon and climb back up in the evening weekdays, regardless of race or nationality.
NIGHT OWLS: 20-25% peak at 9PM for thinking analytically, while the morning is for creative and insightful tasks. They prefer to get down to business late, and tend to experience their positive rebound in the morning.
EARLY BIRDS: tend to experience the peak, trough and rebound a few hours earlier than normal. They’re also usually a bit more stable, happy, agreeable and introverted than the rest.
3RD BIRDS: 60-80% (neither early birds nor owls) find the morning peak best to handle analytical tasks that require a logical, focused and disciplined mind. As for tasks that require more abstract or “outside the box” thinking, this is best handled during the rebound of the late afternoon and early evening.
ALL: schedule the mindless, busy-work tasks during the afternoon trough. And if you’re trying to get a favorable decision from someone, always try to book a morning appointment.
