I've nothing against anyone who decides they no longer want to receive my emails -- because it's not what they're looking for, or they don't like my style, or they're upset because I recommend various paid solutions.
But asking to unsubscribe because you just landed a job and you don't "need" the advice anymore? That's all wrong.
Nobody ever leaves the job search game.
Today's world of employment is very, very different to how it was 10-20 years ago. There aren't many "jobs for life" anymore. Large companies merge and get taken over every day. Mass lay-offs are a regular occurrence too.
So if you decide to stop getting up to speed on what’s the latest or even just forget about how to spot opportunities when they’re right in front you. You’ll find yourself lagging behind everyone else.
What this means is, it pays to keep one foot in the game, so to speak -- to stay up-to-date on what's working and what's not working when it comes to landing a new job. Because you never know when you'll need that knowledge again; it could be sooner than you think.
So when you land a new job, let me be one of the first to congratulate you.
And, if -- like Chris -- you've enjoyed reading my tips and benefiting from the advice I share in these emails, stay tuned and stay in touch.
Keep yourself in top shape when it comes to the job search and interview game.
Remember also that not every blog is about interviews or job-seeking. Many of these blogs share insights about hitting the ground running in your new job or climbing the ladder quickly and getting promoted.
It pays to keeping yourself ahead of everyone else.
