Job Searching Tips for Today

We’ve gathered the best job search advice from job seekers in one place. Here are the top pieces of advice they gave.

  • Be proactive and market yourself. Identify and quantify your skills and learn to be persuasive about them.
  • Prioritize your job search so that you can screen and contact potential interview and lead sources. Ensure you plan your work and work your plan. Treat yourself to free or low-cost perks if you’ve earned them, since job hunting is a full-time job.
  • Know what you’re looking for
    The first step to finding a job is knowing what you want. You should have a clear idea about what type of work you want to do, where you want to live, and how much money you need to make each month. If you don’t know exactly what you want, then you won’t be able to find a job that fits you perfectly.
  • Be patient
    It takes time to find a job. Even if you’ve been unemployed for years, it’s still going to take a little bit of time before you start getting calls. So keep your expectations low, and just wait patiently until you get a call.
  • Make sure you’re ready
    Once you land a job, make sure you’re prepared. Have your resume ready, and practice interviewing skills. Also, make sure you have enough money saved up to last you for a couple months.
  • Keep your options open
    Don’t close yourself off to any opportunities. If you think you might be interested in working for a company that doesn’t offer telecommuting, consider moving to a city that does. Or if you’re thinking about moving somewhere else, talk to people who already live there. You never know when something could happen, and you might end up liking the area even more than you thought.
  • Network
    Networking is a great way to find a job. When you meet someone new, ask them if they know anyone who works at their company. Ask them if they would mind introducing you to someone who works there. And if you really want to go above and beyond, send a handwritten thank-you note to everyone you meet.
