Tips & Tricks
Organization: One of the first steps you should take in the job search process is getting organized! Organize your thoughts and your productivity. Before you fully begin your job search, take time to think about what you truly want in a job. Once you know what you’re looking for, it will make it a bit easier. Developing an organization system for your job search will be a key to success. Something as simple as a spreadsheet or a planner will help you remember what jobs you applied for, where you have scheduled interviews, and jobs you still need to apply for. If a spreadsheet or planner isn’t your style, develop a system that works best for you.
Resume: The obvious task to complete before beginning a job search is updating your resume. If it’s been a while since you’ve looked at your resume, it’s time to give it the TLC it needs. Since your resume is essentially a first impression of who you are, you should make sure everything is cleaned up, up to date, and customized. Check out our blog here on how to update your resume.
Network: We have talked about networking on our blog before, but this can be a crucial step in the job search process. Utilizing all of the contacts you have made may lead to some job opportunities. Former colleagues and acquaintances are normally happy to lend a hand or help you find a great job opportunity. LinkedIn is also a great place to start when reaching out to your connections!
These are just a couple of ways to have success during your job search. Remember that while it is a stressful time, it can be so rewarding in the end when you get that interview or job you wanted.
