Got through to decision makers, now what?

Hello everyone,I used Dan's advice to just send intro letters and resumes to decision makers, even if they would rather I just apply through the website.  I've managed to talk to a few people that are in exactly the right spot to hire me, but many of them say they're not planning to hire at the moment.  Of course, the chances they're just penning a job opening as I call them are slim, but what do I do now that I've made a good first contact?  Should I keep following up (in a respectful amount…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I found Dan's book through Dave Ramsey, then picked up his podcast, then found the website.

I was recently laid off, mostly because the job was not a good fit. I want to find a job that fits me on my own terms.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Unemployed
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have extensive skills in vibration analysis and mechanical engineering. I want to combine that with my strong interest in leadership to be in a position where I can lead, coach, mentor, and still be involved in the technical details.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I'm working to become debt free, though being unemployed puts a hold on that. I also have a goal of getting down to 15% body fat.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
People say they are a quick learner, but I am a *quick* learner. I have talents in math and science and engineering. I had a taste of leadership in Boy Scouts and now that I'm a father I love watching my sons learn and grow. I strongly desire to combine those skills into one job.
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I am selling me!

Hi Nick,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

One thing I noticed on your profile is you listen to Dave Ramsey. So do I. He gives great advice and is very inspiring.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Hey Nick,

 

So glad you’re here, it’s always great to welcome someone who is interested in pursuing the life they were born to live.

If you haven’t already noticed, this is a great community of people interested in growing in the most important areas of life, and to help others do the same. One of the quickest ways to get connected and begin growing and sharing is through the Discussion Groups.

I host the Lifestyles of the ExceptionZ Group, where we discuss, inspire, and encourage each other in being Exceptional in all of the most important areas of our lives. We would love to have you join the conversations there and continue your journey along with us.

Again, Welcome to the community, I can’t wait to gain from your insights, and get to know you better also.

 

Blessings,

Randell Mark Olson
