Job search can be a long and challenging process, but it doesn’t have to be.  If you’ve not had any success in your job search then maybe it’s time to change your approach. Number one on the list is getting organized, creating a plan, and putting your plan in motion. One of the keys to success is to set goals that are realistic and tasks that can be reasonably accomplished.

A successful job search is all about getting organized, creating a plan and setting your plan in motion. Set goals that are realistic and tasks that can be reasonably accomplished.

Just like any other challenge, you also need the right “gear” for a successful job search. You should know that a successful job search doesn’t necessarily start with a Killer resume.

Make a Plan

It may sound like overkill but it’ not. Having a job search plan will keep you focused and help you achieve your goal more quickly. Speaking of goals, that is a good place to start.

Research

Using the list of companies you made while making your plan, research the companies where you would like to work. What type of research?

You need to select your resources for each “mode” of search. This includes your network, recruiters, job search sites, and any other leads you may have. You should be selective, but each category should be representative of your search. You will also need to split your time (see the next topic) and spread your search across all of your resources.

Schedule Your Time

Whether you currently have a job or are out of work, job search is very time-consuming. You need to schedule the time to conduct your search and balance against your other time constraints. My rule of thumb is “one per day” as in, one Recruiter, one person in your network, one company, and one job search site. If you follow this, you will have contacted or leveraged at least 7 different resources by the end of each week (and they start to add up!).
