Help Me Get this Job and you will score

By sselinger ·
I am currently a MCSE,MCT who is working in a smaller market in Canada (under 100,000). I am currently instructing a Windows NT 4.0 track and have absolutely no job security. The company I am working for may go under in the near future. Needless to say I am looking for another job. The market in Canada for MCSE's is very full currently. I am applying for a position in the health related sector and am looking for tips to help me secure the position. The position is very entry level (help desk) but the company is very secure. I have spoken with the hiring manager before about another position which I was not qualified for. I am looking for the most creative tips to help me secure this position. I can send a job description to anyoneseriously willing to receive these points.

Only God can turn the world upside down through the eyes of faith. Prayer with faith unlock God's power. Just follow God's instructions (God's will and He will confirm it in His word)and be sensitive to the leading(small sweet voice) of the Holy Spirit who is our greatest teacher, comforter, counselor and Prince of Peace. This world is almost sinking and only the Lord can do the battle. Satan came to destroy, kill and to steal our greatest joy of knowing the Lord as our personal Lord and Savior. But God's promise is ,I did not come to condemn the world but to give them life and have it more abundantly.God Bless!

2 years is more than enough to be qualified if you are really interested to do the job done. You have your part to perform which 50 percent but leave the 50 percent to the Lord and He will guide you into all truth and I'm sure He will never fail HisChildren if you are REALLY a child of God. Personally, I have a lot of struggles in my life but only the Lord is my strength and 100 percent He is alive and His word is powerful and it is sharper than any two edged sword. But this time, our time isso short we need to share the word of God to the lost and dying world. As what Jack Van Empe , we are almost approaching to the edge of eternity and we are not ignorant of what'is going on in our world Satan are trying to decieve millions of people by performing miracle and wonders but stand still and see the salvation of the Lord but don't be foolish like Moses who did not follow God's instructions (God said speak to that rock but he struck it as simple as that but he was disqualified and if you are faithful in sm

Well, I am not a person of big words, but I tell you my secret to sucess:
Commitment!
Beleive in yourself and let the company know you are the man for the job. Let them know they will not find a better person for the job.
Did you right the interviewing Manager a tank you note?
Are you calling frequently to follow up on the position?
Show them that you want that job so bad, you will not let them go until they either tell you yes or no!
If you talk to them again, don't sell yourself, but the things you can do to make the company a better place.
Employers are looking for people that have commitment with the company. They will pay the big bucks for those who bring profits to the organization. Show them you are the man!

Best of luck!

I just received a job offer for a position that I did not feel I was qualified for. I have 5-6 years expereince in IT, but mostly in NetWare. I am starting tomorrow as the Senior Systems Engineer for a company running strictly NT. Basically, what I did was to be the most energetic candidate that walked in the door! I do not have my MCSE completed (MCP is done), and I am sure he interviewed people that were more qualified. I basically made him feel like not hiring me, regardless of what my background was, would be a mistake. I got the dream job (NT, CISCO, Linux... not a NetWare server in sight!!!) and good $$$. Granted, I live in Chicago which is a huge market, but if you feel you can handle anything they throw at you, make sure you get that across. And do be afraid to show your excitement at the possibility of working there!!!

quick question have you already given the new company a copy of your resume? I was just recently in the job hunting market and found that a unique resume was the key to getting your foot in the door. Here's what I did on mine. I'm a Scouter so I used this to my advantage ever heard a scout is trust-wroth, loyal, help-full, thrifty, etc well I listed each of those (help-full I will be helpfull to all system users no matter what impossible task are asked)with a desription of what I would bring to the company. Next is the interview companies are looking for an individual with a good positive attitued, sell your-self, what can you bring, why can't the company live with out you. I can E-Mail you a copy of my resume if you would like jimm@hubbardfeeds.com......
good luck
