11 Things to Help Your Job Search

  1. Apply for jobs that seem a little out of reach but are not that far above your abilities and accomplishments
  2. Get to know people through LinkedIn who work in places where you want to work
  3. Instead of talking about how much you know, talk about how you can solve problems that potential employers have.
  4. Your pre-existing network of support, which includes your friends and family, can help you and provide networking connections.
  5. Create a specific resume and cover letter for each job you apply to.  Don’t just use the same resume and cover letter for every job.  Writing in the keywords from the job description into your resume and cover letter is critical to landing an interview.  Companies use applicant tracking systems that scan your resume for keywords, so the more of them that show in your resume, the higher your chances of getting an interview.
  6. Prepare for each job interview and speak from the heart during the actual interview.  This helps you project your authentic problem-solving abilities to employers.
  7. When writing thank you letters after the interview, which you should always do, try to connect with the interviewers based on a nugget of personal information they provided or how they provided useful information about the job to you during the interview.  This technique helps you connect with them.
  8. Approach each company as a problem solver.  You want to tell them what you can do for them.  Always prepare for the interview ahead of time.
  9. When on the job, don’t settle for mediocrity.  Be willing to stretch yourself and be “willing to learn a new role.”
  10. Listen to what you think about each job rather than what your friends or family tell you about it.  Keep in mind that you’re the one who will be doing the work, so your opinion is really the only one that matters.
  11. “Do work that builds you up most of the time.”  Your skills, talents, and strengths can point you in the right direction.  Making a list of your skills, talents, and strengths will better prepare you to find work that is suitable to that list so that the job will be a good fit for you.
