Getting Started On Your
Job Search

  • Identify your skills. What skills did you learn or develop at your previous job? What are your strengths? Use these things to point you in the right direction as you begin your search.
  • Eighty percent of position openings are not posted to job boards. So network with everyone you can think of – friends, neighbors, professional contacts. Let everyone know that you are seeking job opportunities.
  • Individualize your resume to fit the different types of jobs you are applying for.
  • Be relaxed and conversational in job interviews. Don’t view interviews as interrogations. Instead, listen well and ask for clarification if you aren’t sure what you’re being asked.
