Job Hunting Tips For The New Year

Posted: Updated:

For many, the start of a New Year means the hunt continues for a new job. Your success in finding one depends largely on your strategies.

Sure the economy hasn't been the best.  But there are things you can and should be doing to help yourself land that job.  Here are a few strategies by CareerBuilder to turn the tables in your favor:

  • Narrow your search.  You're wasting your time applying for jobs that you're not qualified for or don't really want.  Instead, focus on the jobs you're well-qualified for.
  • Do something to stand out from the competition.  If you come across a job you want, send the hiring manager an email directly.  Chances are the information can be found online.
  • Check out your online reputation.  That HR manager will.  Better you take control of what the search of your name will bring up before that happens.
  • It may help to start a Websites.  It's a great way to showcase your skills and talents.  Websites aren't as costly or difficult as you might think.
  • Stay current.  Keep in touch with what's going on within your industry.  It'll help you when that job interview comes.

Despite the economy, there are always employers needing to hire talented workers.  Be prepared if that opportunity comes knocking.
