In late August of 2008 I first wrote about my “90 day ‘Action Plan’” and made a simple, bare bones version available to readers.   If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a great “seal the deal” tool to bring with you to a second interview:  an outline of how you plan to approach your first three months on the job, should you be hired.  I’ve used this approach several times, and it works. Someone is selling a similar document on the web for $79!

About a dozen readers have either commented or emailed me that it was instrumental in their landing new jobs.

But the file was simplicity itself:  a bare bones, no-frills template, the most basic of Word documents, and nothing else.  And that’s always bothered me:  I want this to be as effective a tool for my readers as possible.

That’s why I recently worked with a talented graphic designer to upgrade the appearance and professionalism of the document.  In addition, I developed a complete set of instructions on how to use the Plan, including a series of questions to ask during your first interview – the answers to which will help you craft your 90 Day Plan.

The upgraded 90 Day Action Plan is now available.  See the FREE Downloads page.

    Good plan, that has to feel good that you’ve helped some folks get a job – especially in “this economy”. No harm in making a few bucks while you’re at it.

    Absolutely – happy to have passed this along. A friend (former boss) gave it to me… as for charging for an enhanced version in the future, eh, I have mixed feelings. But it does cost money to host the blog, and then there’s my time…. ! Thx for commenting. kc

    Hello Kevin:

    I downloaded the 90 day plan just in time when I was about to purchase that “Secret Document”. Thank you for your kind gesture to provide this simple document at no charge.

    However, after reviewing all the posts from Aug 2009, I was wondering whether your graphical document took off which you discussed providing at a nominal fee?

    Thanks, Sara

    P.S.
