1000 Resumes, One Job – Video 7: SMART GOALS

Keep Goals Simple and SMART.

Specific:          Well defined – clear to understand.

Measurable:    Know if the goal is obtainable and know when it has been achieved

Agreed Upon:   Agreement with all people involved. You have to believe that you can do it – if you have a spouse/partner/children, they need to give you the space and support to do this.

Realistic:         Within the availability of resources, knowledge and time

Time Based:     Enough time to achieve the goal but not so much time that you will cool off from achieving this goal.

To quote renowned American philanthropist Elbert Hubbard:

“Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.”

While you are in the job-searching process, it’s important to think of goal setting in terms of activity goals and broad-based goals.
