Why you shouldn’t go onto Indeed.com looking for your dream job
TravisCPatterson.com – If you don’t look for a serious girlfriend/boyfriend at a bar/club, then why do you look for your dream job on Monster.com.
I hate to say this but not really, but “if you are lazy and know it clap your hands 👏🏽👏🏽“ Most of these companies post positions based on the value of the search for the right person or even they are looking for something that they will know it when they see it. The It factor.
““Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.”
Matthew 7:13 NKJV
I’m not saying that going to monster.com or indeed.com is going to lead to destruction. I’m saying that some of these companies want you to have more of a personal desire to connect with them versus just a job. If you want just a job you can go to the bar and go see the easiest or more accessible position that could be temporary. If you’re looking for that long-term, that — serious commitment role that gives you the benefits long-term with no sorrow then you’re looking to make a one-on-one connection and not a one-on-one hundred gamble.
You might as well search for your dream role on Facebook or Tinder.
So just like dating, where do you find the better role for you to connect with that is more wholesome? For me I will start at the church. Next, I will start at Barnes and Noble. It really depends on what you found in valuable in your job dating over the years.
The message that I want to convey is you have to go where the company is if you want to make a deeper connection where there may not be a position listed but they’re waiting for you to find them.
A person who finds the dream role finds a good thing. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there to find what meansbthe most to you. I’m sure by now In all of your job dating that you know what you like and when you don’t like certain features or benefits or traits about a job. So just be intentional about what you’re looking for and don’t be afraid of rejection. On the other side of your fear is your fate.
