Looking for job concept depicting 3D man looking through O letter

Things every jobseeker can do to be successful in a job search:

  • Make sure the top 1/3 of your résumé is a qualifications profile/summary that emphasises what you can do for the employer
  • Your résumé must be specifically targeted for the type of position you’re seeking — a generic résumé won’t do!
  • After you’ve identified a specific job title that you’re pursuing, collect and analyse 3-5 job job ads for this type of position
  • Be sure to focus on how you can add value to a prospective employer — and then get your résumé in the hands of someone who can hire you
  • To increase your chances of securing an interview, you need to identify who the hiring manager is and get your résumé to him/her directly
  • One of the best ways to reach the hiring manager is through people you already know — and/or the people they know. A great opportunity for this is via LinkedIn
  • Identify the people you already know who can help introduce you to the people you need to get to know in order to move forward with your job search
  • Make a list of all of your contacts — past employers, suppliers, customers, colleagues, competitors, bankers, and others — who can help you with your job search
  • Set up a separate email address that you only use for your job search. Use Gmail or — better yet — your own name as your domain name (like [email protected])
  • One of the best sources of information for your job search is a professional résumé writer. When in doubt about something you’ve heard or read about, ask!
