A job interview is an opportunity for you to assess how you can help the employer AND whether it's a good fit for you as well.
Don't disregard other opportunities while pursuing any one job. Continue applying for other jobs and following up until you accept an offer.
Before starting your job search, you need to know what type of job you want to pursue. Answer this question: "I'm looking for a job in…"
Some people look at advertised jobs and when they don't see ads that "fit them," they think finding a job will be impossible.
Sometimes you can identify companies in fast-growth hiring mode by the type and number of jobs they advertise.
Research potential employers. Look at their website, Google the company, and look for articles written about them.
Past performance is a good indicator of future success: How have you gotten the jobs you've had in the past? Can you use the strategy again?
Only 2-4% of jobseekers land a job using online job boards, yet that's where most people start their searches and spend most of their time.
Finding a job is all about people — the people you know, the people you meet, and the people who have the right information.
Two of the biggest challenges most jobseekers face are rejection and overcoming their fear. Replace fear with confidence by taking action.
Experts estimate that 74-85% of available jobs are never advertised. If you only apply for advertised jobs, you miss out on opportunities.
The single biggest mistake most jobseekers make is not asking for help from their network. People want to help you — so let them!
Having trouble getting job interviews? Your resume may be the problem. Concise, focused, accomplishment-oriented resumes get interviews.
Is your job search not working? Time to do something different. A professional resume writer can support, encourage, and motivate you.
Are you getting interviews, but not job offers? Your references might be the problem.
