WIN-TIPS and Hot Jobs 6-23-14

WIN Hot Jobs Edition 2014-06-23 for job listings

Hot Tips for a Summer Job Search

Heating up your job search this summer should be top priority! Of course the cottage is very inviting during the summer season and many will be suspending their job searches to take vacations. The result is a dramatic decline in the number of individuals seeking employment and should you choose to stay in the running, you will have a significant advantage. It is estimated that as many as 70% of job seekers will abandon their job search in the summer months increasing your odds substantially!

Check out these hot tips for a summer job search:

  •          Update your online profiles regularly to ensure decision makers are aware of your presence and availability.
  •          Outdoor events are abundant during the summer months and excellent opportunities to NETWORK!
  •          A professional resume, business cards and your one page marketing document; be prepared to hand them out.
  •          No signal for your cell in cottage country? Forward your calls to a land line. Recruiters and HR professionals are rarely limited for potential candidates and a missed call could be a missed opportunity.
  •          Continue your follow-up calls to decision makers regardless of who is on vacation. Becoming familiar with administrative staff and maintaining your visibility will highlight your eagerness and competitive spirit.
  •          It’s hot out there but your job interview is almost guaranteed to be in an air conditioned office so don’t lose the tie or jacket. A professional attire does not become an option during the summer months.
  •          Catch up with more receptive colleagues during the summer months to obtain testimonials. It is very likely they have reduced their workload increasing their availability and willingness during the summer months more so than any other time of year.
  •          Follow current affairs related to business news closely. You could be the first to introduce yourself to a corporation announcing an expansion within your city.
  •          Subscribe to online job sites and submit your professional resume whenever and wherever possible. Many potential job candidates could be discovered online but the number available to attend a job interview could be drastically reduced providing a greater probability of being selected despite not being within the top qualifiers.

Take advantage of the hot summer months, follow hot leads and succeed in a job search with limited competition!
