Employment – it’s all about the preparation strategy… or is it?

Like any board game – preparation, planning research are all essential elements to increase our chances of winning – which are mirrored in searching for employment.

 

I received an email over the weekend which made me stop and think.  Maybe not everyone shares this logic.  Who teaches us about workplace etiquette after all ?

 

Over the weekend, I received an email.  I had to re-read this several times.  I have another Growing Talent programme about to start and applications are already coming in.  However, nothing in my 20 year career history working in inclusive employment prepared me for this email……..

 

‘Can I use your address to re-direct my mail?’  This individual was a complete stranger.  Why would they think it appropriate to ask such a question?

 

There is no 2nd chance to make a 1st impression.  Preparation, planning and research will help everyone make a great 1st impression!

 

What do you think?
