The Best Ways to Find Your Next Job

Everyone needs a job eventually, but not everyone knows how to look for one, especially if it their first time. The chances of you getting a new position through the want ads are next to nil but there are many other avenues to pursue.

  1. Tap your network. When looking for a job, consider looking within your own existing network. Chances are someone is willing to hire you but has not thought of you. Reaching out will allow you to get exposure and you will most likely end up with a job.
  2. Connect with alumni.Employers typically hire people who share something in common with others such as values or hobbies or have gone to the same school. Connecting with alumni allows you to get a better understanding of the type of person they are. Call the alumni in your region, go to meetings and grow your network.
  3. Use LinkedIn to maximum effect.LinkedIn is a powerful tool to easily connect with the right people. Search your target market based on your industry, qualifications, university and interests, and connect with the people who interest you. For example, if you work in the insurance sector, you could aim to connect with all potential bosses and human resource departments in this industry and in your market. You can even set goals for yourself, such as, “Connect to all general managers and human resource managers in the insurance industry in my city by the end of April.”
  4. Check job boards.Many companies and recruiters use them to find the right candidate. Define the top job boards for your skill set and put your resume there. Choose a catchy, succinct headline that encourages the reader to open the attachment. Many show when your resume was last updated. To avoid getting shifted deeper into the pile of applicants, update it weekly.
  5. Contact head-hunters.Senior-level professionals are recruited almost exclusively though recommendation or by head-hunters. They know about jobs that will never be advertised and have experience finding openings. If you work with a head-hunter, choose carefully. Identify several whom you trust and be prepared to follow-up.
