Everyone approaches a career transition differently. When I lost my job as a marketing professional, I looked at my job search as a marketing opportunity.
I recalled something my university professor told a small group of us working on our master’s degree in marketing. “You will never market anything more important than yourself,” he said.
As I navigated my career transition, I decided to apply my marketing skills to the job search. In the process, I became a better marketer and soon found a great job in marketing.
I have since shared what I learned with hundreds of other job seekers. I have also written a series of blog posts on the topic, hoping that someone floundering in a job search might gain traction by customizing these marketing ideas to his or her unique situation.
