    3. Characteristics of An Entrepreneur and Your Next Job

    It is easy to see how a successful entrepreneur and a successful job-seeker could have pretty much the same characteristics. Both individuals are trying to create something new, be it a new position or a new company. That endeavor is going to take an emotional impact on anyone. Setbacks are common for both individuals. It doesn't matter if you are just starting out, looking for mid-level jobs or senior citizen jobs. But success comes to the one that sees it through and sticks it out during the hard times.

    We have come across several rules one should consider in your job search, just as an entrepreneur should consider.
    • Find a problem and solve it.

      The environment for job-seekers has changed. You cannot present yourself as "I'm an accountant" or "I'm a salesperson". Especially in difficult economic times, you should provide your future boss with a problem he/she might run up against and show that you can solve it. Say, you have knowledge and experience with Sarbanes-Oxley requirements in a company. Then, provide that information. Tell what you have come up against and how you solved problems and met requirements.


    • You must do your job search alone.

      When it comes right down to it, you are the one that must make the calls, follow-up on leads and be prepared for interviews. You can't put that off on anyone else. You are the only one that can do your work.


    • You can't do it alone.

      It takes more than just grinding it away by yourself. Rely on the support of your family and friends. It is important to be honest about the experiences you are having in your search. Of course, your contacts and colleagues are an important part of your lookout during your search. Include all of these people in your approach for your new job.


    • Teach yourself to sell.

      It may not be part of your nature, but you do need to learn how to sell yourself and your skills. Explain the benefits of a package like you and solve their problems.


    • Persevere, persist and prevail.

      It is not a straight route. One must take the turns as they come and keep your eye on the goal. Success is overcoming difficulties. Stick to it and you will succeed.
