Last Saturday as I was planting flowers along the sidewalk of our home, our youngest daughter joined me. She proceeded to say "There’s something your husband doesn’t want you to know." And I said “Really – what am I not supposed to know?”
It’s about the Rolling Stones.
And how he doesn’t want you to know they are going to be in Kansas City.
I kept digging.
Well, thank you for that information.
I started humming a Stones tune.
So, so many Rolling Stones songs that relate to life and love and loss or even job search – in fact, just about everything.
When I’m drivin’ in my car
And that man comes on the radio
And he’s tellin’ me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
Can you guess the song title?
A. Time Is On My Side
B. It’s All Over Now
C. (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
D. Beast of Burden
E. You Can’t Always Get What You Want
As a job seeker, are you getting what you want? Is your job search going the way you thought it would? Have you been learning valuable information to help fire your imagination? Here are some basic career questions to consider:
1. Who are you and who are you not?
2. What do you want and what do you not want?
3. What are your assets and what are your liabilities?
4. Why should an employer hire you? Why should an employer not hire you?
5. When are you available to start a new job?
6. Where do you wish to live and work?
7. How invested are you in the transition process and what, if anything, are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your new goal?
8. How much money will it take for an employer to hire you?
