*Onrepparttar phone As much as most of us userepparttar 145941 telephone each day, when there is a serious purpose for using it many people freeze.

This is usually just nerves andrepparttar 145942 best way to overcome nerves is to do what you fear.

I'm reminded of what a good friend of mine once told me about fear, you may have heard this yourself; fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. That is to say that inrepparttar 145943 main when we have a fear of something, that fear is usually irrational.

Anyway, lets look at when and how to userepparttar 145944 phone for job search.

Here are a few occasions when you are likely to userepparttar 145945 phone when looking for work:-

Whenrepparttar 145946 advert requests you call for more information. To phone for an application form. When you need to obtain information about a company. To accept a job.

There are dozens of other reasons but no matterrepparttar 145947 reasonrepparttar 145948 end benefit is to get a job.

Withrepparttar 145949 end benefit in mind you need to make your approach methodical and professional.

*Case Study Imagine you have seen an advertisement in a local paper:-

----------------------------------------------------------------- Leading Pharmaceutical Company Requires a Sales Manager with 1 - 3 years previous experience to work an established regional area. For an informal discussion call Holly Wilson at Barnes Big Pills 0568 45633225 -----------------------------------------------------------------

I've seen plenty of similar adverts and during my time helping people with their job search technique. We would often end up using an advert like this as a starting point for role play.

You know it's really surprising how many people would make a call alongrepparttar 145950 lines of:-

"Hi, I'm calling aboutrepparttar 145951 ad inrepparttar 145952 paper for a Sales Manager, can you tell me whatrepparttar 145953 salary is please?"

Plenty of people don't see anything wrong with that, but if you take time to think about it there's a lot that could be better.

*A better Approach Lets take a closer look, first of all, this caller doesn't even know if they are talking torepparttar 145954 right person.

Next, they may have advertised in more that one paper.

Then, they may be advertising for more than one Sales Manager.

But most importantly, you don't sound interested inrepparttar 145955 company, just inrepparttar 145956 money.

It really would pay to take a few minutes to think out what you want to do, and say, maybe even make a few notes and there are a few other things that might help.

Take a closer look atrepparttar 145957 advert, it be worth finding out a few things aboutrepparttar 145958 company, so you could look up "Barnes Big Pills" atrepparttar 145959 library or onrepparttar 145960 internet.

Once you have looked them up and know a bit about them you might have a better idea about what they want, how big they are etc.

What is My Life Purpose?

Written by Jo Ball

Why am I here?

If you havent already asked this question, Im sure you will. Sooner or later most of us do.

Its not an easy question to answer. Its broad in terms of possibility.

Right now you might be a go-getter inrepparttar city; but you could just as easily be a procrastinator in a suburb. Same question, different perception.

But whatever were searching for in life, be it a bigger home, a wonderful relationship, a new car, top job with a superb salary, loving children or just a little peace in our hearts, its clear to see we are all united in our search for one thing. But what is that thing?

Its a simple thing. Its atrepparttar 145868 heart of all of our decisions, yet it often passes us by too easily, too often. When we do catch it, it is a marvelous experience.

I believe were all searching for happiness and I believerepparttar 145869 reason why we miss it so often is because of how we search for it. What do I mean?

Weve been conditioned to want. Wanting creates doing. We desire possessions and money and careers so that we feel or look good so we dorepparttar 145870 things that bring this to us. We attach our happiness to these objects and then somehow feel empty when we have them.

This is why so many people fell disillusioned, lost or confused about their path. This is why so many people are asking or will ask, Why am I here?

I asked this question too. Many times, several years ago, I looked up torepparttar 145871 sky and asked it. Im not sure what I expected perhaps a bolt of lightening strikingrepparttar 145872 pavement before me or a boulder falling fromrepparttar 145873 sky withrepparttar 145874 details engraved on it?

It didnt happen. Then I asked a more powerful question. How do I discover why I am here?
