Job Search Rule #1


Don't:

Spend a lot of time on passive job search methods such as answering ads or job hunting online.

Do:

Spend most of your time on active job search methods such as networking, cold calling, or attending job fairs. Get dressed each day as though you are going to work. Often the way we dress can dictate the way we feel.

Job Search Rule #2


Don't:

Procrastinate and fill your days with non-job search activity.

Do:

Treat your job search like a job. Get up in the morning with a plan for your days activities Establish daily, weekly, and monthly goals and stick to them.

Job Search Rule #3


Don't:

Wait by the phone and expect employers to reach out to you.

Do:

Take control of your job search and follow up on your job search efforts. Be an active participant in your job search.

Don't:

Follow leads for which you don't qualify.

Do:

Be selective. Narrow your job search to include a targeted list of employers that fit your career objectives.

Job Search Rule #5


Don't:

Conduct a job search alone. This can be very isolating.

Do:

Recruit family, friends, and business contacts to assist you during your job search. If possible, collaborate with another job seeker to share information and hold meetings to review your progress.

Job Search Rule #6


Don't:

Wait until your unemployment runs out before you start looking for a job.

Don't:

Believe you are entitled to a job.

Do:

Sell your strengths skills and abilities all of the time. Educate your listener as to why you are the best candidate for the position.
