Job Search

Today's job seekers need to make use of a wide range of job search techniques to reach their career goals.

 

 

They say job searching is a full-time job.  While finding the perfect job can be a timely and overwhelming process, it doesn't have to be.  Use the following tips to maximize your job search efforts:

 

  • Take time to figure out what you are looking for in a job.  If you don't know what you want, you'll never find it.  Make a specific goal for your job search.  Reflect on your skills and abilities, as well as your salary needs and culture of a company.
  • Have your job search "tool box" ready.  Create a solid resume foundation ready to tailor to each job. Practice your interview skills. Understand the hiring process.
  • Be aware of all available job search resources.  Don't limit yourself only to online job search engines:  utilize social media, networking, recruiters, and staffing agencies, too.
  • Manage your time effectively and stay organized.  Create a schedule for yourself and dedicate time to focus on your job search.  Find a quiet, functional space.  Keep a written record of the jobs that you apply to and follow up with each company.
  • Stay positive.  Job searching is tough.  Find the silver lining in your job search.  Reach out to your network or support system for help - you do not have to face this difficult time alone.
