Top 10 Job Searching Tips


  1. Call Recruiters. It just makes sense to have others looking to find employment for you. Two (or more) heads are better than one.
  2. Job search websites are your friend. Use Monster, Careerbuilder, Yahoohotjobs, indeed, simplyhired, Dice (for IT jobs) and any others you can find.
  3. Update your online profiles weekly to keep your resume fresh and to show up on more employer searches.
  4. If you are currently unemployed, spend as much time looking for a job as you would working at one (40 hrs.). It is your job to look for a job.
  5. Make sure your resume looks sharp, and has no spelling errors. Spelling errors will sink you quickly!
  6. Network! Get in contact with all your friends, family and co-workers to see if their companies are hiring, or if they know of any open positions in their industries.
  7. Look professional and speak professionally. First impressions are everything.
  8. Never be late to interviews, work, meetings, or anything.
  9. Follow up after interviews and when you submit your resume. Don’t be overbearing, but let them know you are interested.
  10. Don’t be discouraged. Always remain positive especially in professional settings.
