“There is no map. Indispensible linchpins are not waiting for instructions, but instead figuring out what to do next. If you have a job where someone tells you what to do next, you’ve just given up the chance to create value.”
— Linchpin: Are You Indispensible?, by Seth Godin (@ThisIsSethsBlog)
The game has changed, the stakes are raised, the talent war is on, and your fate is entirely in your hands—Are you ready for battle in the job hunt? What sets you apart?
There is no question that today’s jobseekers face challenging times. Not only have positions become increasingly competitive, they have also become increasingly specialized, dynamic, and rapidly evolving to meet new world demands. The toughest element in this type of job search? There is no road map to show you the way. Instead, the map is created by each professional’s unique journey and set of developed skills.
Students are now forced to prepare for positions that do not exist, but will be mainstream news by the time they are handed their diplomas. This has made it not just advantageous, but essential, to proactively market your way to a job.
To prepare for future jobs, candidates must learn to anticipate, adapt and react in real-time, or risk falling behind in the job market.
