Many professionals who have used self-initiated targeted mailing originally tried the other ways to find a job that you may have. It didn't work for them either. We believe the methods we use to give candidates exposure to the largest possible market of employers are the most effective means to an interview and potential job. When you conduct your job search through MBA Authority, you have the luxury of approaching every employer that matches your interest in every area of the world where you are interested in working. The services we provide empower you to perform a more pro-active, expansive job search that will greatly increase your chances of finding the job that you want. If you use a job posting board or a recruiter, you will have reduced your exposure to a fraction of the employers available through MBA Authority.
We have millions of contacts in our database. This includes corporations, associations, ventures, and many other miscellaneous types of employers. If there is an organization that employs business professionals in the United States, the chances are extremely good they are in our database.
There are several reasons the Internet
is not the best source for jobs.
1. The Internet allows for overwhelming
responses to every job posting.
If an employer is posting a job online, they will likely receive hundreds, or even thousands, of responses. You will be competing with every job-seeker with a computer who can email a resume.
2. At least 50% of the jobs on posting
boards online are outdated.
The employers who use the Internet as a source to find resumes generally use it as a secondary tool to hands-on, offline recruiting and resume searching. Consequently, when a job is filled, many employers forget to remove or delete the jobs they have posted throughout the many posting boards. This would put you in the possible position of applying for a job that has been filled since 1999!
3. No single source of jobs on the Internet
You may need to review more than 50 job websites just to find 1/10th of all the jobs out there. Simply put, this is an ineffective way to search for a job. By using MBA Authority, you can approach all of the employers in a given market very quickly and cost-effectively. Alternatively, you can keep checking job-posting boards for weeks or months until a job that looks good comes along and then hope you stand out among the numerous resumes sent to the employer.
We give you the tools to perform the most effective job search, but you remain in control of every aspect. With the use of our database of employers and our team of experts reviewing your resumes and cover letters, you will be able to realize your full job hunt potential.
In a market as small as the San Francisco Bay Area, we have well over 1000 employers. Should you approach them all? It will ultimately be your decision. You would think that if you wanted to work in a market as small as the San Francisco, you would not need to approach 1000 employers. The problem is that getting a position is very numbers driven. The more employers you approach, the more likely you are to get an interview, and the more likely you are to get a job offer. This does not mean that you need to send out such a high volume of letters in your specific job search. In some cases, we may recommend you only send out 25 or less. However, the more options you have, the more likely you are to find a great position that matches your qualifications and skills. And that is really the essence of becoming a client of MBA Authority: You are in charge of determining your career destiny.
