Mark Your Calendars for Kathy Simmons From Netshare

April 14th, 2007

Netshare CEO Kathy SimmonsAs far as I can tell this is $17.00 and will be well worth your time and money (I’ve scheduled it on my calendar!). Copied from Cindy Kraft’s blog:

NEVER LOOK FOR A JOB AGAIN!

Please join me as I interview Kathy Simmons, President and CEO of Netshare, Inc. on top strategies to eliminate “job search” from your vocabulary on April 17, 2007 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern. If you are a member of the CFO–Career–Forum, log in and register. If you are not a member but want to join us for the call, sign up here.The real objective for you, as an executive with a career path, is to develop a sustainable strategy that makes you an invaluable asset. If you do it right, you will never have to look for a job again.A bold statement? Not really. If you think about how the job placement game is played you really have three options: lead, follow, or get out of the way.

  • If you are going to follow, then you pursue all the job postings that come your way, you call the recruiters, you talk to HR managers at companies that lead in your market, and you inevitably compete with everyone else who is looking for the same job with the same qualifications. It becomes a horse race, and you can’t even bet the odds.
  • If you choose to get out of the way and wait for good things to come your way you will be waiting a long time. Some senior executives decide to sit back, do a little consulting, and wait for the phone to ring with the right offer. After all, their friends and former coworkers know they are looking, and they know they are good at what they do, so all they have to do is wait, and wait, and wait, and wait….
  • If you take the lead, then you become the hunted, not the hunter. Be proactive and promote your skills and your accomplishments to an ever-broadening network of professional contacts. You sing your own accomplishments loud enough, and long enough, you will be heard, and create a feedback loop that will result in job offers again and again. The secret is to be proactive, be positive, and be open to new possibilities.

    Jason,

    As a member of Netshare, I have participated in one of the “Ask the Coach” sessions with Cindy Kraft and can attest that she is very knowledgable and very helpful. I am sure that her interview with Kathy Simmons will be excellent.

    Thanks for the reminder, its amazing how much you can get out of just an hour with a really good coach.

    I totally agree. I work with career and executive coaches across the country. I have different relationships with different coaches but I LOVE working with these coaches. Usually, during our calls they will slip into “coach mode” and I get free coaching that is awesome for my business or my personal objectives. They have a knack for digging and getting to a root-problem, and then working me through a thought process to figure out what I need to do. Definitely worth it.

    Thanks for the kind words, Jim. I’m glad the Ask a Coach calls provide you with value.

    Warmly,

  4. […] Last week I dialed into the teleseminar that I blogged about, remember, the one for $17? The title was “never look for a job again,” and Kathy Simmons is probably one of the best qualified speakers on the topic. As president and CEO of Netshare she has seen tens of thousands of CxO-level execs over the years, networking with them virtually and face-to-face. I was completely intrigued by what she had to share. […]
