Forum and Workshop: Is there a job waiting for you? By Lloyd Luna

The question,  "Is there a job waiting for you?" is not just for the graduating class of 2016 but also for the following professionals;
1. Those who would like to shift career or
2. just  had laid off, retrenched or in the midst of closing down the company you're with for the last 5 years.

More and more professionals now need more than the usual college degree and training sometimes are not enough. So, if being equipped might not give us the right career, how about learning how others did it.

UNLESS you beat the average of 199 other applicants competing for the same position, you won’t get the job. You’ll be joining the world of the unemployed. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t get depressed and disappointed, for you are just having your first taste of the real world.

According to Lloyd Luna, "But you need not apply if there is already a job waiting for you, right? Trust me; regardless of your status today, this is possible. Whether or not you are enrolled in a first-class school, this can work for you as it had amazingly worked for me. It’s nice being hired without getting into tight competition. I have been there and done that. And I’d like you to know how I did it."

Date: August 12, 2015
