Job Hunt

Seven Steps to a Successful Job Hunt

1. Know Your Strengths (and Weaknesses)

It is important to be honest with yourself about exactly what skills you possess. If you do not have a long work history to review, take stock of what courses you have done.
Ask yourself, “What am I good at? What tasks do I enjoy doing?” Then write them down. Seems simple enough, but without this step, your job hunt has no direction. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses helps you to create a job hunt.

2. Create a flawless resume

Not only does your resume need to be free of spelling and grammatical errors, but it also needs to be geared towards the job you are attempting to obtain.

3. Networking Works

Are you tired of your resume disappearing into the black hole of the online job application? Did you know that 60% of people learn about current job openings through networking?

4. Monitor Your Social Media Profile

Whether you are about to graduate college or you are laid off, you need to have a social media profile and more importantly, you need to monitor it.

5. Target your Job

What makes a job ideal for you? What are you looking for in a job? What do you love to do? How far are you willing to commute?

6. Be Accessible

If you are seeking a new job, there is no point to having a social media profile if you have your settings designed to make you anonymous or block people from viewing you.

7. Prepare for the Interview

The mere thought of answering interview questions can leave you with sweaty palms so adequate preparation is the key to avoiding a disastrous interview. You cannot expect to have a successful interview without doing each of the following steps:
~Research the company.
~Have an understanding of the company culture.
~Know the number one thing an interviewer wants to know is “Can you do the job?”
~Be prepared with your strengths, weaknesses and reasons the company should hire you.
~Have a thank you letter ready to mail (or send via email).

So there you have it. Seven easy steps!
