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.


  1. Present yourself well. Have a neat, organized résumé, dress nicely and show up on time (or early).
  2. Speak confidently. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have as much experience as you’d like. Speak about what you’ve learned through life experience and your education and what you’re capable of. Make them believe they’ll be missing out if they pass you up.
  3. Ask good questions. Before you ask about salary or benefits (usually something that comes up in later interviews), ask about what it takes to succeed at their company. Show them that you care about doing your job well.
  4. Say thank you. Remember to send a thank-you note or email after the interview. This basic courtesy can go a long way toward making you seem sincere.

Good luck!
