I met my friend Carl(not his real name) yesterday who told me his son was struggling getting a job as a trainee professional. He wondered if he wasn't good at this ..or wasn't profient enough at that. so I offered to see his son jeff ( not his real name).
He popped over this afternoon and what a delightful chap he was. There was no one thing I could put my finger on. We then discussed why he had had 4 'no thanks'. He was honest enough with both of us to say why he thought he didn't make it.
I then explained he had to get involved with business development! "Ugh?" he said.
I then explained marketing your services products and yourself is a numbers game. I sent him away with a supporting letter and a list of companies to contact. In the spirit of networking I will write a letter of support when he approaches these companies. Why? Because I know these people!!
