It’s time for a new job but you’re not sure where to start. Here are some tips on how to make your job search a little less stressful for you:
1. Use your connections! – People don’t take the time to realize that they should be using all the connections they’ve built up over the years to their advantage. Contacting and reaching out to all your career related connections can really benefit you. These contacts have a good understanding of who you are and might know of some good positions that might fit your skill set.
2. Think of what you really want – When searching for a new job its important to consider whether you want to continue to work in your current field or try something new. If you want to pursue something new, you have to think about what skills you have that will transfer well to this new career path.
3. Don’t be picky about titles – Remember that companies have different titles for the same position. Don’t just look at titles when applying for jobs, make sure you actually read the description!
4. Remain positive – You’re going to go through some bad times and some good times when searching for a new job. Just remember to keep your head up and continue moving forward! No one is perfect and you might fumble some opportunities, don’t worry.
