Get Organized

By: Staff

Searching for a new job opportunity can feel like a full-time job. Being organized will help you keep your job search under control. First, decide exactly what kind of job you are looking for. Many people overwhelm themselves by applying to many opportunities, even if they don't interest them. Only apply to those opportunities that fit your needs and qualifications. Secondly, write out a plan for your job search process and stick to it. Include websites and publications that you will check regularly for new job listings. Also, brainstorm on ways you can network and schedule networking meetings. 

Lastly, keep a record of the resumes you have sent, including job titles, company and contact names, and contact information. Each of these steps will help keep you organized and on the ball in your job search!
