Well I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. Now it is time to get back to business.

Lynn Pulliam is the only firm volunteer we have for Thursday. I have one other who is considering, but until they respond I still have two slots open.

It would probably be good for all of you marketing types out there to explain why we have such an ebb and flow to the volunteers for the Launch Pad.

We tend to see it in black and white which is why we say:

ARE YOU DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO TO FURTHER YOUR JOB SEARCH? IF YOU HAVEN’T DONE THE LAUNCH PAD THE ANSWER IS NO!

This is not just a catchy phrase that we use, it is the truth as relayed in a testimony by Michael Stelly last fall. It made so much sense and was coming from someone in the tenches, so we adopted it as our own. The not-too-subtle message is “What is keeping you from doing something that will give your search a possible boost?”

Every person in that room has your best interest at heart, and every person will be reaching into their depths of knowledge to come up with something to offer that might lead you to success.

If you think you are not ready, you are just slowing things down. Give yourself a gut check and ask yourself how many times you have used that excuse to keep from doing something that you know you need to do, but for some reason, fear to get started.

Does your ego need a boost? Volunteer for the Launch Pad….it’s one of the things that we do best.

Now, take some positive action. Return this E-mail and ask for a slot. It is as easy as that. This could truly be the first step to a brighter tomorrow.
