Encouraging Someone to Dance Could Land You a Job

When is the last time you asked someone to humiliate you? Can’t think of one, right? In fact, don’t we spend most of our adult life trying to avoid being humiliated? Of course we do! We’ve been trained to avoid failing so we don’t look bad - which includes not letting someone else make us look silly or stupid. So, why then, am I asking YOU to humiliate ME? I’ve got something to prove. Last month, I delivered a two-hour on-line training called, The 20-Minute Job Search. In it, I explained why traditional job search today doesn’t work and how a 20-minute job search per day can be far more fun and effective. I used examples and even some science to prove The 20-Minute Job Search is a viable alternative to what the majority of Americans are doing today. The program was so well-received I decided I needed to do it again - but this time, I’m going to make attendees an offer they can’t refuse as special incentive to allow me to prove the value of The 20-Minute Job Search. Sign-up to attend and you could win the right to publicly humiliate me on YouTube! Anyone who registers for this training before 12:00 PM ET on Friday, October 21 will be entered in a drawing to win the ultimate career coaching experience. One lucky winner’s name will be pulled from a hat at the end of the actual workshop. That person will work with me on their job search EVERY DAY for 20-minutes until they land their new job - at which point, they will pick a song, any song, for me to record a Job Jam to that I will then post on YouTube. (NOTE: The winner must be willing to record a few video interviews with me so we can share their coaching experience with our readers.) What’s a Job Jam? It’s the end-zone dance to celebrate your new job! A couple of years ago, I started the Job Jam for my coaching clients. When they get a job, I do a dance - and it ain’t pretty! They pick the song, and I rock out in celebration of their new position. This time, I plan to put it up on YouTube so the lucky winner can proudly share with their family and friends the announcement of their new job. Trust me - it’s going to go viral for all the WRONG reasons. And yes, I’m going to look really stupid and feel humiliated. But honestly, if it will show the world how practical and doable The 20-Minute Job Search really is, then I’ll dance like a maniac! Here’s what you need to do next... (Pssst. It includes getting a FREE month membership to CareerHMO.com.) To join in on this, simply sign-up for our webinar being held on Wednesday, October 26. If you can’t make the live event, that’s okay.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.
