Job Hunting Tips

There are basics to consider when you are on the hunt for a job. Ellen Gordon Reeves, author of Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview suggests the following 7 considerations. See if you are on track with these ideas.

  1. What is your time line? How long can you afford to look?
  2. Do you know what you really want to do? List 3 skills you enjoy using three task you don’t like and three companies you are interested in.
  3. Do you have a 30 second pitch? Be ready with a sound bite describing what you are looking for.Do you have supporting materials? You need a business card, resume, cover letter tailored to the job and a social media presence.
  4. Do you look ready to work? New clothes and a haircut are good starters.
  5. Do you have a job hunting space? A library, coffee shop, office where you can talk, write and do your job search.
  6. Who is in your network? List your best resources, friends, former colleagues, and professional contacts that can help.

Then, practice your pitch with friends or family.

 Good luck!!!!
