October 27, 2006, Newsletter Issue #39: Ask not what your employer can do for you...

Tip of the Week

Ask what you can do for your employer. Employers need to know what you can do to make their lives easier. They need to see your portfolio, hear about your accomplishments, and wonder how they ever got along without you before. They do not need to hear, "Well, Im not really qualified for this position, but you should give me the job anyway because Im good at all kinds of other things, and I need to work from home because Ive got a sick child/spouse/parent/cat/parakeet that I need to take care of, so I probably will only be able to work between the hours of 2 pm and 5 pm, and oh yeah, I need to make $50,000/year". Your best success will happen when you review your strategy and turn your job search into a search for opportunities to work closely with employers who need your skills.
