1.) Show Up-drop off that resume+cover letter in person. Everyone tells you to apply through via email but if you do what everyone else does it is that much harder to stand out-people who appear in person tell the folks hiring that they are eager & invested.
2.) Clean it up! Check all of your social networking sites like Face Book, Myspace, Twitter, and whatever else you use. Potential Employers look at that kind of stuff–clean it up, look professional, land the job.
3.) Dress your resume+cover letter with a sachet powder designed to increase prosperity, make people like you, & draw a good paying job your way.
4.) Get fancy+formal-taking the extra time and effort to put on nice clothes, do your hair, and apply make up (if a lady) sends the potential employer BIG non verbal cues that you are serious and will put effort into the tasks they have for you.
5.) Create a lodestone altar for magnetic attraction & abundance
6.) Be ballsy! Request an interview when you drop off your resume+cover letter-let the people you meet know that you are serious and seriously interested. Ask if the manager, supervisor, or boss is in the house and if they would be willing to sit down with you for five minutes to hear why you are the person they have been looking for–remember fortune never favors the faint of heart.
7.) If you do not hear back from them in a week, give a call back on the following Tuesday or Wednesday–don’t call on Monday, everyone is too busy, and CALL do not email, pick up the phone and CALL.
8.) Exercise discernment-do not apply for everything, apply for the positions that look like they would be the best fit.
9.) Be positive, upbeat, & honest-if you need benefits and you are applying for a job where they don’t kick in for 6 weeks tell them upfront that’s a deal breaker-employers appreciate honesty.
10.) As we say in candle work-set it & forget it–once you have shown up, spoken you piece, and handed in your goods its the waiting game. Follow up with a phone call the next week but then let it go and focus on the next task at hand.
