Finding the perfect fit
Sometimes it’s hard to fit into a pre-existing job opening. That’s why there are specialized placement strategies to help you find a job that fits you and your lifestyle.
- Job Sharing is when two or more people share the tasks and responsibilities of one job. (It can help to find the person you’d share the job with and present the idea to the employer together.)
- Job Carving is when you identify the tasks in a job description that match your needs and skills. A job is then “carved” out of one or more existing job descriptions.
- Job Creation is when an employer creates a new position to address a previously unmet need. Although job creation can be a good solution for some, it can take a long time to identify and materialize. To learn more about job creation, read When Existing Jobs Don’t Fit.
