Before embarking on your job search, make sure to do the following things:
- Reach out to your network: Did you know that a friend of a friend can help you find your next great opportunity? Most jobs are found through networking. It’s also true that many organizations look for referrals from current employees to fill positions. Therefore, your contacts play a very valuable role in your personal and professional life. Be sure to keep in touch with them.
- Update your LinkedIn profile: If a recruiter is looking for a candidate with your skills and experience, one of the first places they visit will most likely be LinkedIn. Take the time to update your profile. If you don’t have one, now is the perfect time to create it!
- Build your list: What companies would you be interested in working for? What industry(ies)? Job title(s)? Take the important step to acknowledge what you are looking for. After all, you will spend a great part of your time doing your job. Do research on the company culture and current employees to make sure it is all that you want it to be.
- Look for opportunities to get your foot in the door: Be open-minded about staffing agencies and temp-to-hire positions. If you need employment quickly, these are good options. Just remember to treat these positions as you would other positions, especially if you want to become a permanent employee.
