Moved from Government Job to Private Sector with 30 60 90 Day Plan

lawyer interviewAnyone who's tried to move from a government job to the private sector knows that it can be difficult to escape the "government worker" label.  I want to share Missy's story with you (she's a lawyer) to show you how you can bridge that gap and get the job with a 30 60 90 Day Plan:

Dear Peggy, thank you for promoting the 30-60-90 day plan. As a former government agency head, I was really stymied in trying to find job opportunities outside of the government sector as I was labeled a "government worker."

As someone who has never been in the box and has always excelled at creative workarounds in an environment that set me up for failure, I found it discouraging and totally unwarranted.

In any event, I put together a unique 30-60-90 day plan for how to implement a real in-house counsel office within a publicly-traded corporation and bam, I got the interview and the job. The general counsel told me they'd never gotten homework from anyone during an interview, until they met me. Thank you!!!!!

I have been promoting you and your common sense approach to all of my lawyer friends who are looking for new opportunities and there are many of them...many thanks for all of your efforts and dedication.

30-60-90-Day Plan Lands President Role

Job Offer President Role30/60/90-day plans work for job interviews at all levels...from new graduates to President of the company.   In Allan's case, the plan helped him show his fit for the job and the company.  He says it 'unequivocally differentiated' him from the other candidates.  What job seeker doesn't want that?

Peggy,

I hope this finds you well. I'm happy to tell you that I recently began a new role as President of a small, privately held distribution company in Las Vegas. As we discussed, "fit" was a key criteria for me in my search, and the alignment on every level with the business owners is remarkable. I'm excited about the role and the opportunity ahead of us. It's different than anything I've ever done, yet will require all of the skills and experience I've accrued in my career.

Obviously I was a client, but thank you for your support and counsel during my search. As you know it isn't an easy process, and the tools and advice that you provided were critical to success. In particular the advice about being relentless on the networking process, the tips about dealing with ageism, and most especially the 30-60-90-Day Plan were key for me. I would be happy to provide a testimonial about the 30/60/90-Day Plan...it unequivocally differentiated me in the search and interview processes, and provided a basis for guiding the discussion where I wanted it to go...to the skills and experience that I could bring to a role.

Best regards!

Skeptical about 30-60-90-Day Plans? Read This

reformed skepticIf you've heard of 30-60-90-day plans but never considered bringing them to a job interview, you are not alone.  Some job seekers hesitate to step outside of the norm and others simply believe they won't work.  If this is you, you are missing out.  Read Brian's comments below:

Peggy,

When I first heard about 30-60-90 day plans, I was at best skeptical. I thought that they came across as presumptuous, demonstrated a lack of flexibility, and opened the door for communicating a lack of understanding of the scope, politics, and operating climate in a new role. Several people had encouraged me to use them, but I refused.

But, after a few interviews failed to translate into offers, I revisited the idea. I purchased your package and quickly realized that the problem wasn't the plan itself, it was the WAY I was thinking about them.

To make a long story short, for my very next interview, I followed your plan and developed a 30-60-90 proposal that blew their socks off. After 6 months of searching, I got a great offer from a great organization!!

Thank you very much from a reformed 30-60-90 skeptic!!!

Job-OfferImagine your job interview automatically turning into scheduling your onboarding process with the company!  That's what a 30-60-90-Day Plan did for a Country Manager (because of the conversation it allows you to have in the interview), and that's what it can do for you.  Karolina got 2 job offers in the same week by using a 30-60-90-Day Plan. See her story...

Dear Peggy,

I would like to thank you for your invaluable help - after several months of my unsuccessful  job search I have finally found a great job. I am going to take up the position of the Country Manager of a global logistics company in Poland. The offer I got even exceeded my expectations.

Your 30/60/90 Day Plan so impressed the hiring manager (as well as my improved resume, appropriate preparation to interview and right questions impressed the head-hunter), that the job interview automatically turned into scheduling my induction plan!

Moreover another company I spoke to and presented my Action Plan to also offered me a job in the same week!

I am very grateful for changing my attitude toward the job search process, making it more aggressive, effective and successful! I will recommend you to any job seeker I know!

Thank you and all the best to you and the whole your team,

Karolina

Hi Peggy,

I used the 30-60-90 day sales plan [in a panel interview] and blew away the interviewers so much they actually offered me the job within 24 hours. This was after initially telling me they had one more interviewee coming in the following week.

...When the panel got back together the next day they decided there was no need to have any more interviews. This was the one job I really wanted.

Thanks for all of your help.

Regards,

Mike

30/60/90-Day Plan Gets Job Offer at Apple

Job OfferSay you have a panel interview with one of the world's leading companies...what do you do?

Hi Peggy,
...I recently used your 30/60/90 day plan at an interview with Apple Inc., and the results were astonishing. During the panel interview, I received a surprised reaction from the panelists when I showed them my 30/60/90 day plan, but as you said they were receptive to it. One of them actually said, "Oh, that's cute." I did not get a chance to finish the 60/90 portion of my plan because they said position was so new, and that it was hard to predict the future needs of the position. The next day, I received a call back from my recruiter with a job offer.
My recruiter said he received high remarks from my interviewers about my business plan. I will use it again to negotiate my salary in the future.
Thank you so much, Peggy!

30-60-90-Day Plan Helped Her Ace the Interview and Triple Her Salary

30/60/90-day plan Imagine going into your interview full of confidence, getting the offer, and tripling your salary! See how Mildred did it...

Hi Peggy,

I just could not keep my success to myself; I owe you a huge “thank you.

After taking two of your webinars I begin to put what I learned into action. Finally, I received “the call”  for an interview...on  Tuesday...my interview was scheduled for the same week Friday.

The first thing that came to mind was the 30, 60, 90 day plan.  I was a bit stressed, only because I was afraid I did not have enough time to put together a good presentation, but guess what?  I did it.

The night [before] my interview, I felt like I was "armed and dangerous," all because I took your words, did my homework and prepared myself for the interview.

I aced the interview; the following Monday I got the job offer.  It was unanimous--all six people voted hands down for me and my salary tripled.

I thanked God first and then you.  The 30,60,90 day plan really works.

Many thanks!

Mildred M.

How to Get a Director-Level Job Offer 90 Minutes After the Interview

clockExecutive jobs are few and far between, and the competition is intense.  Imagine what it would be like to get an offer for a director-level job 90 minutes after the interview?  This is what Randy did.  He went from getting interviews but no offers, to getting an executive job offer within an hour and a half of the interview.  What a turnaround.  Please read his story below to find out how he accomplished this, so you can do it, too.

Hello Peggy (and staff),

I'm a veteran of job searches (not by plan) over the last 10 years. Lately I had been getting the interviews, but no offers. I came across your site and what struck me most was the 30-60-90 day plan.

I recognized the need to re-energize my campaign, do something different, so I signed on for many of your programs. What a difference it made in landing this job.

The hiring manager (COO) said he brought in 6 candidates for the director-level job, and [the team] each interviewed 6 people. He said I was first on 5 ballots, and second on the other, and was clearly the best-prepared candidate.

I spent a lot of time crafting the 30-60-90 day plan, made sure to review it with him (he spent an extra hour with me), used your techniques to close on the job, and was able to answer more than several of the 101 toughest interview questions with your help. I nailed the interview; he called me with an offer 90 minutes after I left.

Thank you so much for your advice and assistance. Definitely the best money I've ever spent (outside of my engagement ring).

Best regards,

Randy L

This is what a difference a 30-60-90-Day Plan makes...it elevates your interview so much that they are incredibly impressed with you and offer you the job.

Jorge got a job usually reserved for pharmacists who complete a 2-year fellowship.  Congratulations, Jorge!

Dear Peggy,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your services (interview prep documents, videos, webinars, [Hidden] Jobs Finder, and 90-day plan). With your help I was able to secure a job in the pharmaceutical industry straight out of pharmacy school. Your 90-day plan outline helped me impress the company so much that I was given a promotion to a senior title, which is usually for pharmacists who complete a 2-year industry fellowship. Thank you for helping me get the job of my dreams.

Warm regards,

Jorge, PharmD

30-60-90-Day Plan for Executive Jobs

30-60-90-Executives - CopyExecutive Job Seekers: One interview tool can make sure you get a strong offer and give you the blueprint to success in your new role. This strategy gets C-Level, President, VP, and Director job offers fast—so you save months of time and thousands of dollars, and don’t miss out on a plum job.

 * See More About the 30-60-90-Day Plan for Executives

Imagine you were interviewing 2 candidates…one answers questions well, and the other answers questions well AND has a plan that shows you exactly how they would approach the job, so you have a substantial, in-depth discussion about it. Which one would you hire? You’d hire the one with the plan, of course.

Having a plan means that you can prove your fit for the job. It shows who you are and what you can do. It allows you to communicate at a much deeper level about this job and demonstrates your knowledge, drive, work ethic, and commitment to success.

Having an in-depth plan to discuss in your interview also means that you avoid the 3 biggest reasons executives fail in the first 18 months:

(1) Difficulty in establishing credibility;

(2) Inheriting a crisis without a plan for solving it; and

(3) Undefined performance metrics.

Discussing these things with a plan in your interview gives you a blueprint to success in your new role.

Starting from scratch, creating a substantial plan requires significant research and thought, as well as a considerable number of hours. Not only do you have to research the company, you have to evaluate all the different tasks, actions, and priorities to determine which ones will be the most impressive and move you furthest toward success. This can take days, or even weeks.

The 30-60-90-Day Plan for Executives has ALL of the tested, proven tips and insights you need to quickly create a professional, strategic, powerful plan that will give you the best interview of your life—and the job offer.

Job Interviews - Why Aren't You Making the Cut?

Are you getting interviews but no offers? Watch this video.

In the video, I talk about working with a job seeker (as a career coach) who came to me because he could not make the cut past the first interview, and couldn't get a job offer. This guy was an articulate, educated, talented person--there really should have been no reason why he couldn't get the job. The advice I give him is good for any job--sales, accounting, finance, health care or medical, education, retail, you name it. If you aren't making the cut in your interviews to move forward and get the job offer, you need to watch this video.

Here is your key to getting the job offer every time:

30-60-90-Day Plan Nets VP of Operations Job Offer

Executive-1If you are frustrated in your job search, you need to notice 3 things in this hotel industry executive's story:

1.  Even highly skilled and talented people can have difficulty in the job search--but it can be overcome with a better approach.

2.  It pays to follow up with companies you've applied to or sent your resume to.

3.  Even the mention of a 30-60-90-Day plan can be enough to get the interview--and it can certainly get the job (in this case, within 2 hours of the interview).

I hope you read this and are inspired for your own job search!

Peggy -

I just wanted to send you a note to say thanks - thanks for lighting a fire inside to get me motivated again, and thanks for reminding me how powerful the 30-60-90 Day Plan can be!

After being unemployed for about 6 months, I was perusing the internet and came across your information. I liked what I saw and signed up for one of your webinars. I think the first one I attended was how to avoid age discrimination while looking for a job. That was the one that got me moving again - got me energized and fired up! The next webinar was about the “secret weapon” to use - the 30-60-90 day plan. Of course!, I said to myself. In my industry (hotels), we use this all the time, in many ways (forecasting occupancy, creating sales & marketing plans,  etc). Years ago (it had been over 10 years since I had had to “look” for a job - they came to me), I had written a 30-60-90 and it got me the job immediately. So I knew the power of it.

One day, soon after that, a job was posted on LinkedIn through one of my groups. I responded to it, and included my resume. I received a response saying they would look at my resume and get back to me. 10 days went by with no response. So I sent an email with the subject line “30-60-90 Day Plan”, and a brief explanation that if I had a chance to speak with them further about their business I would be able to put a plan of action together for them. The phone rang almost as soon as I hit the “send” button - and it was the president of the company!

This company is based in X, and I am in Y, but I was planning a trip to visit my sister who happens to live in X (and who has been bugging me for years to move there). So the president of the company suggested we meet for lunch. Over lunch, I introduced my plan, and was able to suggest some concrete ideas that would help solve some of their immediate issues. Within 2 hours after that lunch meeting, they called and offered me the job.

Long story short, I am now in the process of moving to X. This is a big change, but in my industry and at my level (VP of Operations), one often has to relocate. That is the reality, as upper level positions are few and far between.

So, just wanted to send a testimonial to say that the 30-60-90 day plan works! Of course, you must be able to back that up with concrete facts and evidence of success in the past, but that's true of any interview, especially when discussing your resume.

Please feel free to use this, but I ask for anonymity please. I am too well known in certain circles.

How a Sales Job Interview Goes from Good to Great

Good-to-GreatLane's story shows how a 30-60-90-Day Plan can transform your job interview from 'good' to 'great'--and get the offer.

Peggy,

I just had to send you a quick note and thank you for your wonderful product. Before I was introduced to your product I had been looking for a new job for quite some time. I think as a "Salesman" I was likely overconfident in my abilities to sell myself.

Your Job Offer Generator offered me so many concrete ideas to improve my job search. The most valuable to me was the 30/60/90 day plan. It was the reason I got this job offer! I interviewed with the VP of Sales and he said he had never seen anything like it. He loved the initiative I took. He said he even wanted to incorporate it into their sales training for all new hires.

I have to admit, I was a little nervous and somewhat skeptical on using the 30/60/90 day plan. However, I could tell that it immediately took a good interview to a great interview and set me apart from all other candidates.

Thank you so much.
Lane Lewis
