“If we can keep our competitors focused on us while we stay focused on the customer, ultimately we’ll turn out all right.”
– Jeff Bezos
Jeff Bezos said, “If we can keep our competitors focused on us while we stay focused on the customer, ultimately we’ll turn out all right.”
I’m going to rearrange that just a little and say, “We’ll always focus on our customers, keep our competitors glued to us, and enrich our business growth thru the quality and importance that is invaluable in our customers’ transactions.”
We rely on and are resilient upon our customers, and our customers rely on the value we incorporate into our “every time” transaction with each and every customer. When I buy a service and/or product, I want satisfaction from what I am purchasing. I believe in today’s economy there is less frivolity in purchases and much more concern for the quality and value of a purchase. Our growth, our success, is ultimately contingent on building and holding onto a loyal customer-based clientele.
Giving our customers expert respectful service in addition to value for their money is a priority – second only to the value of their transaction – with us. To achieve this, we have chosen the one we feel is best for our customers: enhancing the value of each transaction between us.
Did you wake up this morning and think, “Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as if …” Stop right there! They are great lyrics, but the rest of that particular line doesn’t apply to you: you’re at Joonomy now and we are going to work with you so you can start to put aside “your troubles …” and “get ready for a brand new day…”
Do you want to find work in the same or a similar market you’ve been in for however long? Or perhaps you want to make a change. We’re here to help you with either choice. Do you want to be entrepreneurial or are you more comfortable stepping into an established position where you can put your skill set(s) to good use for a prospective employer: keep in mind there are employers who want freelancers to work within parameters and that’s fine, and there are also employers who are looking for individuals with incentive and innovative ideas that can benefit both employer and employee.
Take a few minutes and jot down some notes to yourself: notes that outline your overall work experience and pointers that delineate your strengths, skills, know-how, certifications, accomplishments – everything relevant that comes to mind. You can sort it through later: get started first. You might want to note areas you are interested in but need to strengthen because once you do you expand your working versatility and interest on the part of potential employers. If you get kind-of stuck doing this, we at Joonomy suggest you might want to go through several of the job opportunities we have, see what employers are looking for and add those “requirements” to your notes and figure out which ones are immediately applicable to you on first sight and also how you can responsibly take your experience/ know-how and innovatively apply that to their “requirements.” You can amaze yourself with what you can see and realize about yourself once you put your mind to it.
For freelancers, and yes employers too, out there in the virtual market-place (virtual for now, concrete once you suit up with each other), know that we at Joonomy have ideas, tips on “How-To,” suggestions to and for your advantage we want to share with you.
Are you an established employer, or perhaps a novice in the entrepreneurial world out there, or a seeker in the job market anxious to connect with an employer, preferably the “right” one? That meaningful job is there, that “right” employer is waiting for you. We know it is anything but easy: it’s a deliberate effort and it is time-consuming. I’ve been through it and I am so aware of what you are going through. I believe that it is prevalent – more often than not – in the job-market-society we live in today that referrals are a major factor in finding and getting that “best” job. That part of the job market search and door opening, the high-end referral type of thing, is known as the “hidden” job market and we at Joonomy are determined to help you benefit from it and have the opportunity to be among the potential 75% hires who get their jobs through it.
Remember, with you and Joonomy there “Ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no valley low enough, on that you can depend …”
