So you may have noticed whilst online honing on your job search today it has been the day everyone jumps on the Trump bandwagon and everyone has been thinking of what relevant content they can put out there that includes Trump-isms, Trump observations and learns from his rise from rich joke to Leader of the Free world.
Being a recruiter, the theme seems to be around, “Trump becoming President of the USA is the reason why you should go for that job, even if you don’t have the relevant experience”, or “Set your sights high, as you never know how far you can get”. As well intentioned as they are, (and I do agree to an extent, more so with the second point), its just feels like content crow-barred in to take advantage of the exposure.
So I won’t resort you to any of that………..
Who am I kidding?? But I want to use his example to make some more accurate, insightful and potentially life-changing observations that may just help you along your job search to secure that next role!
If we are to take any learns from the last 18 long, arduous (but sometimes funny) months, then it’s the following:
I think its safe to say that everyone will probably take something from that little list, and we’ll see the unemployment rate across the whole world drop by 237% within 3 minutes. It helps that I know all the best words, I suppose.
The next blog will be equally appropriately themed- I’ll publish it in about a month and will be covering the topic of, “What to do when you realise you have made a hideous hire!”
*N.B. Please take no heed of any of these points- I feel it necessary to state this, as there are people out there who voted for Trump to be POTUS, so it is feasible that some people may follow my advice and (in this case at least), would be very very bad! 😉
