Knowing what the market is offering
Learn what successful people know about how to market themselves successfully. With all of the business being done on the Internet, today's Job Market is a very large and fast paced one indeed.
Whether you're an employer or an employee, you need to have a solid understanding of what it takes to compete in this market. You need to know where and how you fit in.
In answer to the question at the beginning of this page, the Job Market is both an employer's market and an employee's market.
Employers need good employees and employees need good employers. So whatever your position, the key is to make what you have be what the other believes they have to have.
If you are an employer, you own and/or manage the company/business. In which case, your main concern is knowing how to market your products and/or services to sell. Besides having good products and/or services and prices, you need to present your "wares" in such a way as to make people desire them.
You also need good people to help you sell these products and/or services. Which means you need to apply your best marketing strategies and present any work positions you have in such a way as to make people desire to work with you.
If you're an employee, you're working for someone else. In which case, you are the product/service and your main concern is knowing how to market yourself to "sell" an employer. You'll need good references and at least some education, experience, training and skills. But - more than any of this, you'll need to know how to sell this package - you - in such a way as to make employers desire you.
Whatever your position, decide what you desire and then research who can give you what you desire.
If you're an employer, make sure you allow at least a week to take applications and resumes. Then find out everything you can about each person who applies for a position.
If you're an employee, find out everything you can about each employer with whom you're interested working. Then put in many applications or send out many resumes. Based on your research, "tailor" each application/resume to each employer.
With this kind of background information, you'll get all kinds of good ideas about how to present your position or yourself to make the other person want to give you what you desire.
Bottom line ... Whatever your position, you'll need to keep up with the current trends and decide where and how you fit into them.
