48. Who does the work you want to do?
All the corn pone "wisdom" about job change and career development comes up short of this simple truth: The best help you'll get in your search for a new job will come from people who do the work you want to do. They will teach you:

  • What the work is all about
  • What it takes to be successful at it
  • How to apply your existing skills to that work
  • How to develop additional skills you will need
  • How to avoid wasting your time in your search for the right job
  • Who can hire you
  • How to meet the people who can hire you
  • How to prepare a demonstration of your relevant abilities
  • What to expect in an interview
  • What to expect from the job
  • How to win the job

All you need do to get this wonderful advice is find someone who does the work you want to do, and ask for it. Why waste time doing anything else? With all this help available from real experts, who needs career counselors, want ads, resumes or headhunters?

Any new job should start with this question: Who does the work you want to do?
