How to Speed up Your Job Search

Is your job search off to a slow start or getting stuck? Here are some keen time-saving job search tips that will help your pursuit for a new job go smoothly.

Be More Than Prepared

Always have an upgraded resume ready to send – even if you are not currently looking for work. You never know when an opportunity might come. If you’re not on LinkedIn yet, create a LinkedIn Profile and start making connections that can help you job search.

Utilize Job Search Engines

Use the job search engine sites to search the major job boards, company sites, associations, and other sites with job postings. You will be able to search all the jobs posted online in one step. Use Advance Search options to find jobs that are the closest match.

Use Your Network

Be farsighted of the fact that many, if not most, job openings aren’t advertised. Discuss with everyone you know that you are looking for work. Ask if they can help.

Get Social

Social networking sites like Face book and Twitter can be a good way to get job listings before they are listed elsewhere. Plus, you can promote your candidacy with the social media tools that are readily available for free for job seekers and companies are vastly using social media for recruiting.

Don’t Limit Yourself to Online Applications

Don’t get paused, once you apply online for that position. Start finding and then endearing yourself to people working at that company of interest.  Approach an internal recruiter and ask a few questions. Get on the radar of the very people who might influence you getting an interview.
