WHERE ARE THE JOBS?

How do you find your ideal employer?

Finding a job through Internet searches can be both daunting and time-consuming.  It’s easier if you feel in control.

First, where do you want to work?  Target a geographic radius from your home.

  • How far are you willing to commute?
  • Are you willing to relocate? And would you relocate at your own expense?
  • Are you willing to travel in a job?
  • How much income do you need to cover your lifestyle?
  • Define your dream job

 

Research companies in your target zip codes.

Resources can include:

  • Professional and personal networks
  • Job boards
  • Internet sites such as LinkedIn
  • Employment Development Department (EDD) for your state
  • Vocational organizations
  • Staffing agencies
  • Outplacement agencies
  • Alumni associations
  • Professional associations
  • Niche industry focus group
  • Professional publications

 

Short Cut:

Who do you know who can hand walk your resume to a hiring manager?
