Job Search Tips from the Pros – disability.blog

Job Search Tips from the Pros – Source: disability.blog

By Guest Blogger Paula Reuben Vieillet, President and Founder of Employment Options Inc.

When it comes to job hunting, it is often best to consult the professionals. Job and career counselors are certified specialists in their field and know from experience, with their own clientele, what works best and what does not. They also know the nuances of different stages of the job hunt and different industries.

Not everyone can afford a career counselor or has access to free job placement services. Therefore, I asked my job counselors, who helped more than 400 people on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) return to work last year, about their best suggestions for getting a job.

Every one of them began with “Preparation is the key to success!” So take these tips to bring out the best qualities you have to offer an employer!
