I’m always seeking opportunities to meet new people and establish partnerships that can help my business grow and ultimately assist my diverse clientele located across the world boost their job prospects.
Just today I was meeting a potential client who wished to employ my resume writing and career coaching services. We were meeting in a busy coffee shop discussing how my expertise can make him stand way above the competition. Deep into the conversation I noticed two people trying to catch my attention, it was two recruiters I know very well. I beckoned them over and introduced them.
They showed an interest in my potential client and asked him for his brief infomercial on himself. Taken by surprise, he eloquently obliged and provided the interested executive recruiters with a snapshot of his career.
I could see from their faces that this was a good and productive meeting for them while taking a break from their work. One immediately announced he had a perfect search for this person’s skill sets. He asked for a resume!
Well, this by chance meeting highlights that everyone in a job search mode not only needs an up to date resume, but also one should carry this important document with you.
Luckily, I had a copy of this person’s resume in my file and gave it to the recruiters. Guess what, my potential client called this evening stating he has an interview lined up next week!
Outstanding! Impressive! I’m constantly amazed by how networking and establishing rapport with partners can benefit all!
Take heart, take in as many networking opportunities as you can, life is full of surprises!
