Career Coach ENERGY?

Do you really need a career coach? Have you ever thought to yourself? “I know I’d be great at that job if only someone would give me a chance” or “I would love that job, but I could never make any money doing that.” Do you struggle with the concept of networking and/or feel that you have fewer valuable contacts than others Do you ever find yourself apologizing for your age, level of experience, or education? Have you sent out résumés for jobs you know you’d be perfect for and have not received a response? Do you have trouble getting interviews or turning interviews into job offers? Are interviews uncomfortable because you find it difficult to talk about yourself without feeling like you’re bragging? Given the economy, do you worry that you may have to settle for a job or salary below what you know you deserve? Do you worry that your unemployment compensation and/or severance will run out before you find another job? Have you been out of work longer than you ever expected? Do you feel stuck in your current job or no longer find it satisfying? Do you feel your job, and the jobs of your co-workers, are in jeopardy? If you answered “Yes” to even one question above, working with a career coach could help you streamline your efforts.  If you answered “Yes” to more than 3 questions, the right career coach could help you shave weeks or months off your search. When you think about what you expect to earn in a typical week, the opportunity cost of NOT working with a coach is probably a lot higher than the investment you’d make with even the most expensive coach. Get the support you need, you are worth it.

My Best Regards!

Job fair ENERGY?

What an interesting week I have had representing Resume Energy. I started the week attending a job fair, and I ended the week, giving out business cards to people walking the streets in the Kensington section of Philadelphia. Both instances helped give me even more clarity, focus, and purpose. They each made me see firsthand, how people need help, our communities need help, and if we would each just stop and find out what our true gift and purpose in life is, we can each do something to make a difference.

The job fair was a fantastic day, spent helping, encouraging, motivating, and inspiring others. That was the benefits of providing the “one- on-one” resume reviews and career coaching services at the job fair. The event was outstanding and well attended. There were an estimated 600 job seekers in attendance and forty four (44) companies from New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The host, Washington Crossing’s Methodist Church, provided as per scripture, James 2:14-26, “Faith without works is dead”. The shortcoming of attending the job fair is the reality that many job seekers during this recession have it really tough. The job seekers are so diversified today, from many backgrounds and diverse life styles. For many of them, they were once gainfully employed and then the next day, due to their company’s “reorganization and restructuring” they weren’t. There is also no doubt they are stressed. Between optimizing their resumes for positions they think they are qualified for, to dropping off educational accomplishments and dates for fear of being seen as overly qualified. Worn down by frustration and stress, many find themselves spiraling into sleepless nights and lack of motivation, worry, and fear.

Please we must change our conversations. Computing and/or talking about the “unemployment” rate is like computing and/or talking about the wind chill factor, why look for more ways to make you miserable.

I’ve also noticed that many job seekers could not name at least one or two companies they would consider working for. This troubled me, as a career coach, a job search must be “focused”. A job seeker should not be wishing for a job to hire them, they should know where they want to be hired. This is intention. I have a simple homework assignment for all job seekers or anyone desiring a career change. Find as much as you can about 10 companies that you want to work for. From the top to bottom, visit the web page, learn about the employees, I also noticed from the great folks I worked with that their resumes did not highlight the skills that made them memorable employees. That’s what a prospective employer wants to hear, what made you the best person for the job. Please this message is to all of them, Resume Energy’s resume writing service is my gift from my heart and spirit. I strongly believe that if each person has a God given talent and gift; and that this gift is intended to serve our community, and when that is done, we service the whole. Even though there is a fee for the resume writing service, the resumes are written from my heart and intended to energize the job search because it is co created for success. They are created based on the laws of energy and principles of faith, confidence and certainty, translated which means, “Our faith, our confidence, our certainty, and our courage, will help get you back employed”.

My best regards!

Faith is ENERGY?

Hi my wonderful friends. I know that your life has been filled with love, joy, and peace, since our last meeting. If it wasn’t, that was YOUR choice. Having love, having joy, and having peace in your life are a choice!

What a week it has been for me. It is OFFICIAL tomorrow, Thursday, June 14, 2012; at 7:00 p.m., I will be presenting a mini pre-job fair workshop, entitled, “Resume Tips & Tricks”, thanks to the generous hospitality of Washington Crossing’s United Methodist Church, located at 1895 Wrightstown Road in Washington Crossing, PA 18977, and a man with vision, their Mr. Pierre Ede. Much gratitude and thanks!

Have you ever, really wondered what FAITH really is? I intellectually believe, by a preponderance of the evidence, that God exists, that the Bible is true, and that Jesus is his Son…and I do believe that faith aligns with our deepest beliefs.

Remember my personal mission is to help my community get back to work, so I really need you to understand that I am not blaming anyone for creating their current situation (unemployment). I am just asking us to dig a little deeper, and do some deep, deep inner work to see if perhaps, just maybe we are or were putting some of our faith in the WRONG place (I didn’t say all of it).

I think that instead of putting our faith in ourselves, our divinity, or in our inherent ability to create what we want, we easily, and often without realizing it, put faith in what we do not want.

Let me say that again, a little slower: I- think- that –instead- of- putting- our –faith- in -ourselves,- our divinity-, or –in- our –inherent- ability- to- create –what- we- want-, we-easily-, and- often- times- without- realizing- it-, put- faith- in- what- we- do- not- want.

That’s the faith is energy, that I really want to talk about. Maybe a short description will help make my point. You are at work, you love your job. Each and every day, you go to work smiling and happy. Your job supports your vision of life. It feeds your family, and allows you to enjoy some of life’s luxuries. Then comes this recession, and how things have changed.

Many of your friends, friends, of a friend have lost their jobs, or have been downsized, but not you, you still have your job. Today you feel “blessed” some call themselves “lucky”. But then a rumor starts to circulate about your department, that it is planning on reducing one hundred jobs. Instead of having faith that you are not on that layoff list, each day, you wake up, drive to work, wondering if today is going to be the day you get a pink slip. Or if you didn’t get it, you will end your day, saying thank God, they didn’t give out pink slips today.

My question for this scenario, was, “Where was your faith?” All day you sat at your desk, worrying about getting that pink slip. Where was your faith? Stop and really think about it, where was it?

It was in getting a pink slip! All day, your body cringed, reacted, and felt, as if you were given a pink slip. Each time your boss walked by, you knew he was going to call you into his office and hand it over to you.

I know I am making light of a very serious situation that may have happened to you, but I need to do this to make a point. You didn’t have faith that your needs would be met (Philippians 4:19: And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus). You didn’t even put your faith in the truth statement, “that if one door closes, a new one opens”.

Sorry, there is no way around it; you put your faith in your belief that you were getting the boot. You Felt As If The T hing Had Happened. Notice what the beginning of each letter spells out: F A I T H!

Make a committment to yourself today, that you will never ever do that again!

Fast forward to your divine job or employment opportunity that is coming your way. In order to create that new job, expand your career opportunities, you must have FAITH. You must feel as if the thing is happened or happening and you must then stand in that energy and in that awareness. When you have faith, you allow things to unfold, get this without WORRY, UPSET, or DISTRESS.

Here is a homework assignment for all my job seekers. We must stop worrying about not having a job and start believing that we can have one. The assignment is simple and will give you at least a break, three times per day, from that annoying, worrying, or anxiousness you may be feeling about not having a job.

I want you to commit to taking three (3) five minute breaks throughout your day. During each break, I want you to spend those minutes believing that you have the job of your dreams. Feel as if it has happened. If you are employed and want a promotion, feel as if you are promoted. You get the drift. This level of belief, even for five minutes, changes the thoughts (energy) in your mind, and raises your vibration (energy). A higher vibration attracts higher things. Please let me know how this homework assignment worked for you.

My homework assignment: Helping put Americans back to work, and effecting change, one person at a time. I see myself traveling around the country, inspiring and motivating people to remake their old resumes, with fantastic resume tips and tricks, and of course given the job of writing most of them.

I will keep you updated! By the way, two short months ago, I was “thinking” (changing the energy in my brain) of thoughts and of ways to share my resume writing gift with the community, and the next minute, I am on a schedule to do exactly that.

I believe and know for a fact, that we manifest in our lives what we believe true. I accept as true, we have this gift, and I know that it takes faith (energy) to propel it forward. Faith is energy!

My best regards!
