Chronicles of an IT Job Seeker - The Pierson Method

by Milt Haynes

I attended a Job Search Work Team (JSWT) meeting and found it very enlightening. The JSWT team follows the Pierson Method found in the book "The Unwritten Rules of the Highly Effective Job Search” by Orville Pierson.

The Pierson Method is a job hunting system that uses a Project Plan and Progress Measurements. It guides you step-by-step through a highly effective job search in three phases:

Message from Hampton Roads Chapter President

Allison Haymore didn't win the election for National BDPA Vice President ... however, she demonstrated her skills, talents and aspirations in this nomination speech. I hope that she stays on board as a strong chapter president taking BDPA Hampton Roads chapter to unreached heights in 2012 and beyond...

Take Five: Allison Haymore (BDPA Hampton Roads)

Allison Haymore is a BDPA leader with vision. She was the founder of a BDPA student chapter when she attended college in Virginia. Currently she serves as the BDPA Hampton Roads chapter president. She was a nominee for the National BDPA Vice President vacancy earlier this month. Although she didn't win the election I think it is fair to say that we will be seeing more of Allison in the coming months and years!

We asked her to become part of the Take Five interview series. Here is what Allison had to say:

Pieces of Gold in Those Job Postings

fromBDPA Detroit TACbyCliff Samuels Jr

Job Postings are "pieces of gold.” They are your customer’s wish lists.

Any sales person would tell you that in order to sell someone something you have to know what they need.

Read through job postings to find out what your customer (the employer) is looking for – what is the need?

By familiarizing yourself with the language of the job posting you will be able to not only read the words and the content, but you will be able to read between the lines.

Here’s an exercise that will help you find the "gold” and make good use of it once you discover it.
