The holidays and 2018 are just around the corner and you are still looking for work.  What are you dreading the most, not having a job or, what do you tell family and friends during the holidays get together about your job?  This sometimes can be more stressful than the actual search.  This is another reason to have a value proposition speech prepared.  In your job search toolbox, you should have several version and length of your introduction speech, even with your family and friends.  This will keep you focused on the positive, not dread the question, and not feel hopeless.  This will also make them understand what you do and what you are looking for.  How often do you hear within your family “I have no idea what so and so does for a living”?  So, put together your mini speech by starting with your title, how many years of experience, what you’re good at, what problem you solve.  This will give the asker clarity about what you do and better able to have you TOP OF MIND if he sees or hears about an opportunity.

Send me an e-mail and I will send you a template and ideas on how to create a PVP.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a great holiday season!
