I am not a recruiter or one of those you can work from the beach social media guru's by any stretch of the imagination.
I'm really no different than you trying to stay educated with what seems like daily changes to social media capabilities.
Constantly exploring how they integrate together, where are the eyeballs all without having to ask my kids.
My goal now is to share information on what I find interesting or have experienced in the sports industry (Good and Bad) and more importantly, help bring value to your career / business.
The roadblocks that I keep hearing from my audience is; "I called and emailed my resume to over 100 companies without one response" or "It's getting impossible to get to the decision maker now, no one picks up their phone or returns an email".
Sadly it's the world we live in.
Meaning, how you connect with decision makers has changed.
The gatekeeper is no longer the assistant or front desk administrator.
The decision makers are really no different than you and I.
Think about the last time you actually answered your cell phone.
Even if you did recognize the number chances are it wasn't a good time to pick it up. Unless it's your mother!
How often do you return an email from someone trying to sell you something?
Lets face it, texting is the best way to connect with family and friends.
So think about how we screen people we don't know.
We look them up on Linkedin or Facebook first before we decide if we want to connect.
We look at pictures, perhaps we drill even deeper and look at websites and maybe read a blog or watch a video.
Depending on that first impression through social media is typically how we decide if we want to spend anytime with that person.
Decision makers are no different.
