Each year I make my own humble attempt at a silly, quirky, lightly inspirational poem! Although my "poetry," (if I may call it that!) will win no awards, I do have fun writing it and hope you enjoy reading it!
'Tis the dawn of new beginnings, that time of the year
When people are greeted with words of good cheer.
Job hunters, more than others, take a moment to pause
To ponder if a new job is their gift from old man Claus.
My annual present to you at this time
Is to offer encouragement, all set to rhyme!
My aim is to offer a boost of sorts
To folks who are looking for jobs of all sorts.
Job hunters don’t fit into one single mould
Some are newbies, some are pushed, some decide to be bold.
They land on my home page; I’m glad they are here
Because their resumes are in good hands, of that they need not fear!
Career management is what I promote
And those not happy at work, please take note
You must work to your talents, of this I am sure
And you’ll develop skills that employment will lure!
But career management a great resume requires
As otherwise one may not be hired
Cause competition is fierce in this land of opportunity
And you must prepare for thorough scrutiny!
You will start on a new path in this new year
With your sparkling new resume and your job search in high gear,
The resume’s content will sway, and hit a fine chord
With a smart recruiter who will want you on board!
To new grads, career changers and those who were let go,
To all who despair that the job search is too slow!
With resume in hand, now you’re all set
And your worries allayed, there’s no need to fret.
With interview coaching thrown into the mix
Your job search strategy needs no further fix
Go now, and work it! Dazzle employers
Step proudly and sprightly into their foyers!
Your confidence beams with a resolute smile
As you prove your skills go an extra mile
By providing real value that improves the bottom line
You’re managing your career, and it’s certain to shine!
