👉 Build Your Job Search Strategy From Scratch In Just 5 Steps ⚡️
This week, our mentor Jeslyn Xie, shares her success recipe for building a powerful Job Search Strategy that can help you land your next dream job. Leggoo! 🔥
1. Position Yourself and Do Your Research
Self-evaluation and market research are necessary before submitting your applications. If you are an experienced professional, you should consider the below pointers while preparing:
Are you good at the work you’ve been doing?
What direction you want to head into?
What is your salary expectation as well as what others are making in the same role?
If you are a recent graduate:
What the fellow individuals with the same degree as you do now?
Can you see yourself working in fields that you were interested in back at school?
2. Create, Publish and Fine Tune Your Profiles
If you are actively looking for a job, then ensure creating accounts on all major job boards like LinkedIn, Indeed, Monster, Glassdoor, Neuvoo, etc. Building a profile on job portals can significantly boost the possibility of employers/recruiters identifying you as a potential applicant.
3. Apply for Jobs and Keep Track of Them
Create a spreadsheet, and log all the jobs you have applied for - to easily track application status and avoid duplicates. Be sure to include the position title, job code, company name, application date, latest status, and date received.
Reaching out to your network can significantly widen your exposure to opportunities. Consider connecting with former coworkers and alumni, recruitment agencies, job fairs and professional associations.
5. Prepare for Interviews and Learn from Your Mistakes
This is basic yet often overlooked. Learn from your failures and make sure to analyze and improve upon them.
