Successful job search methods have changed substantially, particularly in the last few years. What worked in the past (even two years ago) doesn’t necessarily work now.
There is a voice inside of each of us that wants to quote the movie, Jerry McGuire, and shout, “Show me the money!” For the sake of your career, your happiness, and your personal well-being, however, your job search should look beyond salary alone.
Have you been searching for a job, but your phone just isn’t ringing? Chances are, you aren’t doing enough of the most effective job search activities.
Self-evaluation, for example…
Job fairs, hiring events, career fairs, open houses, recruiting events… these are only a few of the terms that refer to events you can attend to find a job.
And fortunately, there are just as many names for these events as there are actual events…
Awareness of yourself, your community, and the company’s global impact may not immediately come to mind as being of the utmost importance.
However, each of these three levels of awareness can be pivotal in improving your chances of finding a great career during your job search.
Job references might seem like a formality, but to hiring managers they’re invaluable. In fact, a professional reference can make or break your ability to land a job.
