The Résumé Is the Starting Engine, but Your Car Needs to Be Complete to Win the Race

Would you buy a car with only a start engine and nothing else? That’s similar to what many job seekers are doing, and the consequences can be daring!

In the Career Coaching space, it’s not uncommon to encounter clients who solely focus on having a résumé, either due to lack of knowledge or financial constraints. However, unless they are seasoned professionals well-versed in the modern job searching process, they may unknowingly be setting themselves up for failure.

By neglecting to understand their own values and not taking the time to analyze which jobs would be the best fit for them, they risk heading in the wrong direction, possibly leading to pain, unhappiness, and burnout in their careers.

Moreover, by not having a LinkedIn profile and neglecting to network within the platform, they are missing out on up to 85% of hidden job opportunities in the market. Additionally, they deprive themselves of the long-lasting benefits of building a supportive network and establishing professional relationships, which can have a significant impact on their careers for years to come.

Furthermore, by not implementing other strategic job search strategies such as preparing speeches, crafting compelling messages and elevator pitches, and leveraging opportunities within virtual and in-person events, they are inadvertently slowing down a process that could be much more dynamic and effective.

Let’s not forget the technical issues often observed on LinkedIn profiles:

  • Typos
  • Lack of clarity
  • Absence of branding or, even worse, branding in the wrong direction
  • Poor structure
  • Incompleteness
  • Lack of emphasis on results

  1. Knowledge
  2. Mindset
  3. Strategy
