Andrew Hudson is one of Denver’s well-known movers/shakers. Hudson know the PR market, and grew his famous “Andrew Hudson’s Jobs List” because of the jobs people sent him. Hudson then started his JobsGobble networking event to provide a venue for PR and Marketing types to find work.

Now, Hudson writes for Denver Jobs Examiner.  He has a recent article that job seekers should review to add more measures of success to their job search. Hudson starts by recognizing that successful job seekers share a focus:

Here are the five things that always come up:

  1. A strong sense of self.
  2. Professional job-seeking attitude.
  3. Networking
  4. Approach the job search with the discipline of a salesperson
  5. Understand the economy of your community.

Later in the article, Hudson lists some of the many resources available to job seekers.

In Denver, there are many resources available to research our local economy.  Here are a few websites that can help:

The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce This is Colorado’s largest chamber of commerce.  However, there are dozens of local chambers representing local business communities throughout the state of Colorado.  An easy Google search can help you find a local chamber in your community.

The Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation The economic development arm of the Denver Metro Chamber, the MDEC provides quarterly economic updates and a wealth of information on the state of Colorado’s economy.

Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.  This is the official state office promoting economic development.

The Denver Business Journal Without question, the number one regular source of business information in Colorado.  Subscribing to the DBJ is a great investment for any job seeker.  Your subscription also gets you the annual “Book of Lists,” an organized encyclopedia of the top companies in the Denver metro area.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
