Well welcome back we all know the job market is less than looming out there so if you've suffered and suffered a job loss or career crisis of any kind.
My next guest has the answers.
Now I can't tell you Tory Johnson are kindred spirits she'd been on the show once and we've already connected she does Good Morning America like god are quite often she's on fox you see your everywhere.
Fabulous -- she did was her first New York Times -- -- will work from home this book is called -- -- higher.
And this is an absolutely incredible.
Lady she's got great information a lot of my Twitter followers follow her.
At -- joined Twitter at Torrey Johnson.
And -- so we know we've got a lot of you out there that are follow me there have -- -- -- -- you figured out why she and I became.
Kindred spirit she joins us now from our fox studios in New York -- -- welcome back to the.
You sound that is -- generous introduction.
Well it's truthful as truthful you're putting on good info and -- help from people and that that connects with our -- all the time and -- me and and the mission of the of the show are radio program and other stuff so let's get right to and I don't want -- run out of time here.
Fired or hired so if I'm out there and I got laid off last week.
I got fired.
I've worked for the company is seventeen years some kind of tick down for just particularly to the curb like what yesterday's potatoes or some but what's the first thing I got to do.
So the first thing is you have that bagel pity party and you get that out of your system.
Because it's really hard to job -- effectively when you're still -- we are still wondering why me it wasn't there are losing your jobs not about fair or unfair it's just about what is and so you've got to accept that this is your new reality.
And once you're comfortable with that you're able to except that it's a whole lot easier to move on -- a whole lot easier to get that resonate together to start networking into really.
To put yourself out there and I think that's the most critical part about.
Job searching it's putting yourself out there.
You know I've got three -- tell folks we're gonna -- and over the years I'm not a very good interviewer but one thing I have experienced as it on the -- -- that they were doing the interview.
Is that number time someone comes in and honestly what you said they haven't gotten the system.
They're still better they're still pissed off and it just you know other players all the dispersants had taught -- about the other guy.
Then you're falsely -- over here -- bringing us some resolution.
How would you bring him anything but bitterness at the door next cabinet -- you really got a big clans -- that stuff to do -- -- interview I guess.
Absolutely do and so once you can kind of get that here minding your ready to -- I think most important -- from that point forward is focusing on engaging with his many people as possible so.
Most times we spent all of our effort applying for jobs and most people sit in front of the computer and they a wild day by the end of the week.
They're patting themselves on the back saying wow I applied for forty jobs as -- -- -- for 400 jobs this week.
And then they pray that the phone's gonna ring and it doesn't and so just sitting in front of the computer -- gives -- -- false sense of accomplishment that it's just about a numbers game.
And instead I rather people shift their time -- indeed -- with other people and that's because.
People hire people and the more people that you can connect to it when you're doing it online or in person.
What you're doing it because you join a job -- you're doing strategic networking or you just getting out there connecting with people who are interested in your industry.
The faster your success is going to come.
You know in a sense the -- -- toward Johnson who put us the cookies on a show for I can reach him.
And everybody can.
But he has since -- I'm I'm hearing you come through my old salesman's Leon's.
You snowball says that no one has ever passed a check to you through the phone.
You gotta get face to face -- he -- to kneecap with human beings computers don't hire people telephones on our people.
And so that you know that's a big thing because -- -- talked to people they say that governor out of her job for.
A year and a half and I've applied 7000 times -- nobody's hiring you must be discrimination.
Knowledge -- she didn't talk to him.
You're not getting out there what -- -- is also the people.
We sought a six month streak where -- positions have been.
Added to payrolls consistently.
Over the last six months and so many times people say we you know what I really don't want attempt to have -- a full time job with benefits and yet what they're really not realizing is that perhaps the way to get to that full time job with benefits -- the way to get that paycheck in the meantime.
Is potentially through temporary work right now.
The American staffing association's one of my favorite -- is because they have an online database of 141000.
Across the country that anybody can search by both location as well as specialty of those temporary firms that just because you've submitted your resume to one or two -- firm's web -- doesn't mean that you're doing an adequate job you -- a cold call get on the -- ask them.
Do except walking candidates how can I come in and sit down with you -- talk about.
All the skills and experience that I have to offer to your potential clients.
You know how can you get mean your door first and I could potentially go work for your client so it's really about working the phones in getting out there.
You know is where does it sounds house in a step -- is 64% of that.
Employees small businesses -- right secure portion of people in America work for small business.
And with a small business guy I'm once you've got to really explained to him if even if he doesn't have a position posted.
That if you come in with this idea and apply yourself you can make him more money than you're gonna cost him.
And a way to do that is almost -- that -- basis or even just some kind of weird thing where you.
Volunteers sort -- all right let me come in there and show you that I can kick -- What am I what interestingly one of my favorite small business coaches refers to this -- -- as the reds -- approach which is.
Approaching employer because you have an idea for them and instead of saying listen I'm not gonna give you my ideas I'm gonna really guard my ideas until you hire me you give freely of your time and talent to share those ideas up -- you think about it very much like going into an ice cream shop the first thing the clerk says -- isn't.
What do you -- -- I would want to buy what size home you want they say what you wanna try and they let you try something before you have to bias and when you aren't working with small business owners or you're thinking.
Of pursuing small business as a potential opportunity or even a big company frankly.
To be able to go in -- -- here are three specific ideas going for a sales position you're three qualified lead that I -- -- call on day one -- -- hired in this role.
-- here's a really great marketing idea that I thought of that I think might.
-- -- really well -- so giving of your timing your talent as part of the interview process as opposed to keeping your best ammunition in the back pocket can often get somebody to say you know what maybe don't have -- full time job but we've got -- consulting opportunity your freelance opportunity and we're gonna bring you on board.
Now put out there -- -- on an unsafe you can make it now.
