job search notes: Dr Seuss was right!

Don't you just love Dr Seuss? Why, he even provides advice for those doing the job search!
"Young man," laughed the farmer
you're sort of a fool
you'll never catch a fish
in McElligot's Pool
You have no doubt heard something like this from someone along the way haven't you?

So how did you respond?

Did you go along with the farmer's advice and seek somewhere else?

Or did you stick to your desire and proceed?
Oh, the sea is so full of a number of fish
if a fellow is patient, he might get his wish
and that's why I think
that I'm not such a fool
when I sit here and fish
in McElligot's Pool
Yes, focus on satisfying your desire for the RIGHT position.

Use your imagination and creativity!

Above all, be patient!

If you'd like some help leveraging your LinkedIn network, by figuring out how to the just the right fish in that LinkedIn pool of your connections, check out the posting I wrote here:

March 2nd was Dr Seuss (Theodore Geisel's birthday) so in the spirit of Dr Seuss, I have a few posts planned leveraging his writing for your job search.

Note: the quotes are from Dr Seuss' McElligot's Pool, a Caldecott Honor Book published in 1947.
