Just how does one sell oneself, the fundamental task involved in successfully landing?
When I searched online for “How to Sell Yourself,” I got 280,000,000 results! I can find my own way through that mess of information or I can use the Professional Services Group of Central New Jersey (PSGCNJ), the finest source I have found for transitioning “best practices” and a safe place to practice the skills I need to ensure success.
These best practices are available to you through back issues of “Transition to Success” and the archives of past speakers that can be accessed at http://psgcnj.org/media_library.html.
This issue focuses on “people skills,” including steps to staying confident and landing where you belong (Eileen Strong), practical advice on how to differentiate yourself when networking (Marty Latman), setting and meeting goals in 2012 (Rick Verbanas) and other useful tips.
PSGCNJ also requires that you volunteer. This issue has stories about PSGCNJ volunteers whose service to the organization has been consistently beyond the call of duty.
PSGCNJ gives us the opportunity to practice the skills we need to differentiate ourselves from the “pack” so that when it’s “our day,” when it’s “the” interview, “the” network contact, we will be at our very best. Work it because it’s worth it.
