How to Maximize Your Job Hunt

With an oversaturated job market, maximizing the effectiveness of your job hunt is key. Follow these simple tips to help minimize the time and hassle of your job search:

Become findable
Your job search is not only about what you can find, but also who can find you. Post your resume on online job boards. Give your social media profiles a job search makeover using our Social Media tips.

Personalize resumes and cover letters
Cookie-cutter resumes and cover letters just don’t cut it. Sending out dozens of generic resumes without cover letters is not only unprofessional, it is counterproductive. If you are serious about grabbing the attention of prospective employers, you need to tailor your resume and cover letter to the company and to the specific job posting. Check out our Resume and Cover Letter writing tips for more information.

Be diligent in pursuing a job
Perseverance is one of the keys to a successful job search. Successful candidates are those who are willing to put in that extra bit of effort where others are content to blast out dozens of generic resumes without cover letters. In the end, these extras can create a significant competitive advantage.

Follow directions
It’s unproductive to spend a lot of time and effort tailoring your resume and personalizing a cover letter, only to have your application rejected by an employer because you failed to include a required tracking number or phrase or neglected to follow specific formatting directions. Paying attention to details can often mean the difference between being considered for a lucrative position and not being considered at all.
