Topic: Relationship Equity: SureFire Ways to Recession-Proof Your Career

Speaker: Darrell W. Gurney, Executive/ Career Coach, CareerGuy

Many folks have learned the hard way that job search is a different animal in this new economy. The old days of relying on a headhunter find your next gig, or practicing elementary, “let-me-know-if-you-hear-of-anything” networking are gone. Applying online is not even worth mentioning.

The question today isn’t IF you’ll make a job shift or career change, it’s WHEN! Recent statistics show that the average person will have at least three to five career changes and ten to fourteen different jobs by age thirty-eight. If you’re older than that, there’s even more to be concerned about.

What can you do to ensure your own job security for life? Take the management of it firmly into your hands! Rather than resist career transition, become a Master of it by learning stealth methods of relationship building.

For 28 years, I’ve taught folks a backdoor or “stealth” career Management system that leaves them unconcerned about market ups and downs. They have fortified themselves with connections that weather both sunshine and rain. In effect, they’ve “Teflon coated” their careers against the cyclical nature of the economy.

As Harvey Mackay says in his best-selling book, it comes down to “digging your well before you’re thirsty,” which means pro-actively putting yourself top-of-mind in memorable ways with folks that matter.

Join us on October 28th for an exclusive FENG Dallas presentation of “Relationship Equity: SureFire Ways to Recession-Proof Your Career”. This exact presentation was recently offered to 256 Harvard Business School Alumni worldwide, and FENG Austin is the next to enjoy.

You’ll:
- Eradicate the word “need” from your career vocabulary
- Learn the awesome power of research-based relationship development
- Discover ways to penetrate the doors and hearts of thought leaders and experts
- Learn the 10 Time-Tested Principles behind an effective stealth career campaign.

About the Dallas, TX Chapter

DFW Chapter of the FEI/FENG

Our group is unusual because we have combined the two separate groups, the FENG & the Dallas Chapter FEI Member Career Services Committee, into the DFW Chapter of the FEI/FENG to help any qualified senior financial executive that is looking for a job.

We currently have 2,407 FENG members as part of this group.

MEETINGS

We get together once a month. We occasionally have guest speakers. The bulk of the meetings are to network, meet new members, share leads and go over updates on leads. It is a no-pressure casual meeting where members can join in fellowship to discuss things.

The normal schedule for the monthly meetings of the DFW Chapter of the FEI/FENG is the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6 pm unless otherwise noted.

Call Bob Walker, DFW Chapter Co-Chair of the FEI/FENG, with any questions at 214-696-7044.

You are most welcome to attend.

There are many ways to benefit from the FEI/FENG and there are many ways to take part. As usual in life, the more you take part, the more you get out of it. What really makes the FEI/FENG flow is everyone's participation.

The purpose of our chapter meetings is to offer an invaluable opportunity for you to create a sharp focus of your background with the other members.

In order to further this goal, you are asked to do the following:

1. Bring a name badge to the meeting. Print your name badge in the largest type possible.

2. Bring copies of your resume and business cards. I am always surprised and dismayed when new members come to our meetings without copies of their resume or a business card.

3. Polish your 90 second announcement. Ask a friend if it communicates who you are. Simple messages are best. Although most of us are more than willing to change industries, the reality is that jobs that fit are some how related to our industry background. Listen to other's presentations and see if you can help them with their search. Can you make an introduction for them? Can you give them a mailing list? Can you recommend or loan them a copy of a book?

Try to get to know one or two people at each meeting. This makes the process more personal, and there is simply no substitute for this kind of personal contact.

CHAPTER LIST & ROSTER

The Dallas Roster and the FENG List of Chapters can be found on the FENG website at www.theFENG.org. The user name and password are available in the nightly newsletter. It is in a Word document format and when opened is downloaded for your use. See the link in lower left hand corner of the home screen for entry into the document section.

See you at the next meeting !!!!
