Even though there are many job openings available around the country, it may seem difficult to find the right job opportunity for you.
Find a job with these six job search tips.
Six Job Search Tips For Finding a Job
1. Ask Around (Network Strategically)
Looking for a job? Searching for jobs and it’s taking a little longer than anticipated? One of the best ways to find a job quickly is to ask your personal connections for recommendations or referrals. If you’ve spent time and energy on social media, mentioning that you are open to work there can also open doors.
2. Tweak Your Resume: Update Your Work Experience and Review Your Career Goals
Simplify! Take a look at your work experience and see if there is anything that you can highlight on your resume. What have you learned along the way? Have you set career goals? If you continue to keep your career goals in mind, you’ll be more likely to pursue opportunities that are a better fit for you. Make sure to use the right keywords associated with your experience and skills to make sure your resume is able to be found more easily.
3. Be Willing to Say No Thank You
Not all job opportunities are right for you. Don’t just focus on pay (don’t ignore it either). There are opportunities that may or may not be the right fit for your career goals. If you’re applying for jobs in communities and companies, there will be a lot of opportunities you may need to say no to.
4. Be Ready to Say Yes, Quickly, To the Right Opportunity
You have to know exactly what you are looking for though. Have you reviewed your resume, work experience and career goals? Write down a short list of items you want out of the next 3 jobs. If a job offer contributes to that list, consider saying yes to that opportunity!
5. Apply to a Company Career Site – Not Just Indeed.
Hopping on employment sites like Indeed can feel like jumping into an ocean full of other resumes. These are good resources for jobs but if you partner with Panther, applying directly in our career portal increases your visibility into the absolute newest jobs on the market.
6. Partner With Panther
