entertainment job search must delegate

To make strides in your career you must learn to delegate certain tasks

I’m convinced that it’s part of the human condition to be really bad at delegating – it’s as if we all believe we are the only people in the world who can do our job the right way and if we give a certain task or a certain assignment to someone else they are bound to fail and make us look bad.

Well, job searching is a very difficult and time-consuming task and if you are going to do it right you have to learn how to delegate.

Your job search time is best spent pursuing leads and doing really robust background checks into the employers that you are interesting in working for or applying for jobs at. Those tasks are going to make you a more viable candidate.

In order to free up enough time for you to be able to do so, you need to be able to streamline some of your other activities, one of which is actually the discovery of the jobs available. I’m not trying to sound self-promotional, but if you can spend more time on a site like WorkinEntertainment rather than going through hundreds of sites looking for a needle in a haystack, we put it all in one spot, you can find and target 5-10 jobs a day and instead of wasting time looking for them. Now you can focus on understanding their business model – really gaining a in-depth understanding of their goals, how they make money, their hierarchy.

Getting that really in-depth knowledge of their business is going to make you a better candidate, you’ll be able to create a better, more targeted, cover letter, it’s going to make you more successful in the interview process.

Now is the time to let go of some of your tasks and learn how to delegate …and we can help.
