Getting a . Job and
By Floyd B. Foster,
Advertising What Too Have
A YOUNG man living in one of
the smaller cities recently de
cided to insert an advertisement
in the daily newspaper' in an effort .
to obtain a position. Some of his
friends told him he was craxy. Jobs
were scarce as ben's teeth. Employ-'
ers weren't going to bother to write
or telephone prospective employees,
even if they had i job open.
Within a week the young man had
his job, and some of those who had
prophesied failure most loudly were
wondering why they hadn't thought
of the same thing. It's doubtful,
though, if they realized the real se
cret of his success, for he had used
his ad to sell himself and his .serv
ices just exactly as a manufacturer
of grocery products or automobiles
uses advertising to sell his products.
Before the young man wrote his
ad he sat down and studied his prod
uct which in this case was himself
and what he cpuld do. Instead of
thinking of what a job would mean
to him he thought of what he might
mean to the man who employed him.
Then he used his ad to tell the
prospective employer what he had
to offer as an employee, and why he
would be an asset to the business.
In looking for a job no advice is
more important than to put your
self in the place of an employer.
His first thought is, "What can you
do? What have you got to sell me
for the price I can pay you?" An
swer those questions in a fashion
which will convince the employer
that he is getting a bargain and
there is every chance that the job
will be yours.
