Tips for Job Hunters

Get Hired Words on Round Green Button

Finding a job today takes much more than just looking through the want ads. But the good news is that you also have more tools to help you. Here are a few tips to help you find your next job.

  1. Make the time. Don’t make looking for a job your lowest priority. Instead, set aside time every day to work on your résuméresume, check listings, send emails or call potential employers.
  2. Complete an online profile. Sites like LinkedIn are popular with employers and can help you look like the real deal.
  3. Reach out to people. Tell everyone you know that you’re looking and what you’re looking for.
  4. Stay up on your industry. Read articles, attend events and get involved. Show prospective employers that you’re serious about your field.
  5. Search everywhere. Don’t limit your search to just one place. Check online job boards, company websites and even the newspaper.
  6. Be persistent (but not a pest). Follow up with potential employers and let them know you’re interested. But don’t be a pest about it. That can ruin your chances.

Stick with it and stay focused. The right job is out there waiting for you.
