Job change even in the crisis possible most people are currently uncertain. Will I lose my job? Can I develop myself even in this company? How goes it on with my career? These and similar questions are almost daily the economic experts and coach Ralf Overbeck made. Of course, there is a high demand for well-trained and flexible employees even in the current economic situation, so Overbeck. What’s wrong with most people, is the necessary self-confidence and knowledge of the strengths and potential, says the application coach. Many workers do not know their market value. They were interested in recent years hardly for new jobs and do not know where they stand today on the labour market. This fact is not surprising as Overbeck, since in most companies lack a corresponding feedback culture.
Lack of communication between supervisors and employees, little feedback on the services provided and little courage on the part of the employees, to demand these things, identify the Image in the job. Therefore, everyone should test its market value at least every 2 to 3 years, the coach recommends. I.e., intensive engagement with all relevant media such as newspapers, journals, corporate portals and job boards. These channels, you should know and periodically examine the developments looming – regardless of the economic situation. An adequate application document today not only consists of the photo, cover letter, curriculum vitae and certificates.
Today is primarily about the subject of PR in their own right. What benefits or benefit arises for the new company if the applicant on board? Especially in times of crisis even more emphasis on effectiveness and efficiency. The candidate knows its added value and its potential, it is always an interesting conversation partner and a candidate. Therefore, a candidate should know exactly what his qualifications, previous projects or technical and managerial responsibilities at his future employer of benefits are. People, the its Market, as well as their strengths, know, can always find the right job. Job search and self marketing must be as well trained and developed as other competencies, clarifies Overbeck. People who take heed of this fact, are long term employment enabled as other applicants. Practice – they can only win.
