Marketing yourself is the same as advertising and selling a product. You are promoting and selling yourself to a potential employer. You need to ask these questions and Opportunity Knocks can help:
  • Who are the companies that want to hire people who do what you do?
  • What are the needs/trends with these companies?
  • What do you have to offer the company that will help it along in business?
  • What should your promotional package look like?
  • Do I need to change my approach? Review your marketing approach and make changes as required based on feedback.

Opportunity Knocks will demonstrate to you how to promote your knowledge, skills and experience to potential employers by using a variety of sources.

Job seekers who package their marketable knowledge and skills in such a way as to address or solve an employer's problem have a greater chance of landing a job than a job seeker who provides an unfocused application.

Here's a short list of things we will teach you to do:

  • Research the company
  • Study the job advertisement or the job requirements
  • Write focused job application documents
  • Create a web presence
  • Distribute your business card or job hunt notice
  • Join professional associations
  • Send letters of introduction
  • Increase your interest in your current job
  • Using internet resources to promote yourself

Here's the cruncher! You have very little time to make a first impression. A first impression is usually made even before you say your first word. People are making judgment calls on you the moment they lay eyes on you.

Are they accurate? The truth is ... it doesn't matter if they are or not and although it's not always the case, an entire meeting can be tainted by that first impression. It's part of our human nature; we all do it.

Have you ever gained an impression of someone by the sound of their voice, (perhaps a radio personality) and then were shocked when you saw them in person? Not at all what you expected? Yea! We do all make those first impression judgment calls.

Opportunity Knocks has developed some good solid strategies for Marketing You. We can help you put a strong foot forward with tools to create a good first impression.
