How to Revive a Stalled CIO Job Search
The holidays are over, the Christmas decorations have been put away and it's time to to get back to looking for work. According to CIO magazine, it's time you changed up your game plan.
CIO writer Rich Hein shares some smart and focused tips for the CIO job search that will help you form a new career strategy:
Tip #1: Step Back and Reevaluate
Step 1, says Doug Schade, principal consultant with WinterWyman, is to step back and reevaluate. "What's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results," quotes Schade. If you aren't getting any call backs, then maybe you aren't applying for the right positions.
When Schade works with clients he asks them how they go about their search and many times he finds that they are too focused on one position. "It's time to reevaluate. Are you applying to the right type of position and how else can you be going about your search?" asks Schade.
Another Tip: Develop Your Online Brand
Take this opportunity to sharpen your personal brand. Make sure that your brand is geared towards the positions you are applying for. This can include LinkedIn pages, Facebook's BranchOut or personal websites.
