Breaking Down the Job Hunt Mystery — How to Find the Perfect Job — Getting Your Dream Job is Easy
Today, we revisit the gap between deciding to apply and walking into your first day on the job. I will teach you a mindset paradigm change in how you look at getting your best job. Unfortunately, what you’re likely to do is go for a new job because you’re pissed off with the old assignment. If you get a new job, you’ll get more money, buy more stuff, get higher status and feel better. But, if you believe that way, you’re destined for failure.
How to Find the Perfect Job Starts NOW
Breaking Down the Job Hunt Mystery: Think of a story like this……
You’re talking to a friend over coffee, and your friend mentions an opening in their workplace for someone new. First, your friend asks you about what you’re doing, and you tell her. Next, she asks if you like what you’re doing, and you tell her, like all jobs, there are a few things that are a bit ordinary, but generally, your job is excellent. You love it. The people are lovely, the work’s engaging, creative and stimulating, the money’s good, and you have a great boss.
Next, your friend will tell you about the new opening of her workplace. It sounds exciting, so in the next few days, you talk to others in this unique organisation, which sounds fantastic. You apply, go through the interview and within two weeks, you are there. What you find is the job is even better than described.
What happened? You got excited, and it was a breeze. It seemed like the most straightforward process you’ve ever gone through. The keyword is easy. Getting your dream job is easy.
Breaking Down the Job Hunt Mystery First Step
Even before you want to leave, you start now.
Talk to People
I don’t care who you are or what you do; you can always talk to people and network. Talking to people gives you ideas about where you could work and helps you define your passions. When you talk to people, find people who are optimistic about their life and what they are doing. Stay away from negative nellies and pump up what you’re doing now to be a great job, even if it isn’t the best.
Push your Boundaries
Your next job may not be in the field you’re in now. Talk to people who are in different industries. Ask them what’s great about their industry and what they do.
Ask intelligent Questions
If you ask intelligent questions, you’ll get great answers. Hop onto employment websites and look at what’s there. If something looks interesting, research it. Don’t know what questions to ask? Talk to someone to get ideas.

What to do when you’re ready to get a new job
There are several things to consider. They are all about your attitude and mindset.
You’ve got to find a way to get in front of all the other players, but without them becoming competition. I’m a psychic, and I know there are other psychics around; I teach people to become psychics. I have never looked at my students or anyone else as competition. If I do that, I’m working for the wrong reasons.
Be Audacious — take a risk.
You get in front of the other players by being audacious and taking action. If you’re not ready to put yourself out there and take a risk or two, you won’t get the job you want.
Your application is short and to the point, without too many character-building adjectives. Depending on the job, your application should only take an hour or so to write. If you’re writing an application that takes five days, that job is not yours. You’re overthinking it and going for it for the wrong reasons.
Expect the people asking for applicants to want someone different. Every business wants to change its culture; chances are they want you to be the start of that change. If they don’t, that job is not for you. So never try to match their culture, be yourself, be unique, be authentic.
Be ready to pull out — don’t lose your power.
Don’t lose your power, Be ready to pull out of the process anytime. The Universe works in mysterious ways. Employers have stories and try different tricks to get you as cheaply as possible. If someone reneges on a critical thing vital to you, get to work and negotiate other conditions. Have a personal list of ‘must have’ things and another list of negotiable things. I have a friend and client who was offered a super job with a company most would want to work in. Everything went fine until the guy who was winning and dining her — new boss — ’told’ her to sign her contract asap. He got angry when she questioned him on that. It was a deal breaker; she walked away.
Walking away is empowering.
Getting your dream job is easy, especially if you’re ready to leave a prospective job. If your new job doesn’t meet your needs and you walk away, that’s a very empowering thing to do. It’ll give you confidence next time, especially if the next employer hears about it.
Act as if the job is yours.
Confident people get great gigs. When talking about the job in an interview or after the interview, act as if it’s yours. Use ‘we can’ or ‘we will’ and not “I would …..” (that reeks of ego). Ask what the challenges and problems are and if they have a solution. They probably won’t have answers because that’s what they want you to do. Always ask intelligent, searching questions.
Interviews are a 2-Way Conversation.
While you’re in the interview, remember you’re interviewing them just as they are interviewing you. It’s a discussion. You’re not there to catch them out; you’re there to see if the job is you. So be ready to pull out at any time. Be honest. If you’re uncomfortable about something, say so.
If you’ve popped a couple of questions that aren’t answered, and you smell a rat. Tell them you’re not confident in them. If they don’t know what they want, you’re in trouble. Unless that’s what you want, you may wish to do that because you’re going to be the one to fix it all for them.
After the interview no, ‘I wish I’d said that.’
After you’ve had your interview walk out with confidence; if you think it didn’t go well and they tell you that the job is not yours, it’s because you sabotaged it yourself, and that’s a good thing.
Walk out feeling confident and go about your business.
How to Find the Perfect Job: Post Interview
If you feel the job is you, could you do more? Wait three or four days, call the contact or person in charge and ask if they would like to have a coffee. That person will ask why? Could you give them a reason? You’ve thought about a couple of things that would like to help their business. You’ve solved a challenge you discussed in the interview, and I would like to chat more about it. Be the problem solver and always use “We”, not “I”. Assume that the job is yours and you’re working in that business.
The job is yours
That’s how you get your exceptional job. It’s not rocket science. You are confident, you love what you do, and you love to solve problems.
Most of all, it’s easy.
