I’m a Pastor and just got fired

fired, Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’m a Pastor and just got fired You might think there are still some jobs that are immune from firing, but I can’t think of any.  Last week I talked to a “tenured” professor who just got fired and pastors are being fired in droves.  Even the President is constantly under threat of hearing his own phrase, “You’re Fired.”  Your security is never in the job, but in knowing how your skills transfer to multiple organizations.  Other questions we discuss: How does one go through a career hunting process when they are very happy in their current career but are … Read More

Does the 48 Days Job Search process really work?

A reader asks Dan: Does the 48 days job search process really work? Dan answers with another reader's letter of success.

I received this note two days ago: Hi, Dan, I have read your book, 48 days, and I wanted to know does your job search process really work? I have been told that approach, mailing through the mail is old school, takes too long, people toss letters like that in the trash, email is faster, people keep emails as oppose to paper, etc. I have been out of work for 4 months now. I am totally petrified. I have tried networking, passing out my resume to family and friends, etc., and still nothing. I am not a fan of picking … Read More

I can do anything you want me to……

A young man, armed with letters of introduction from prominent men, one day presented himself before Chief Engineer Parsons, of the Rapid Transit Commission of New York, as a candidate for a position.  “What can you do?”  Have you any specialty?” asked Mr. Parsons.  “I can do almost anything,” answered the young man.  “Well,” remarked the chief engineer, rising to end the interview, “I have no use for anyone who can ‘almost’ do anything.  I prefer someone who can actually do one thing thoroughly.” * One thing I see repeatedly is people who are “generalists.”  They attempt to do a … Read More
