Job Search Do’s and Don’ts

Posted by | September 6, 2012 | Do's and Don'ts, Job interview, Job search

What should you do when you’re job searching? And what shouldn’t you do? There’s a laundry list of things that can help your job search and things that can hinder it.

Every part of what you do when you job search, including looking for job postings, writing cover letters, dressing for an interview, sending a thank you note, job searching (or not) from work, and using social media can make – or break – your job search.

Don’t Blow Your Job Search

Job searching can be tough enough all by itself. There is no need to make it even harder by doing or saying the wrong thing when job searching or interviewing. Here’s a list of what you shouldn’t do, so you don’t have to wonder why you didn’t get a call or didn’t get the job.
Do Boost Your Job Search with LinkedIn
Be sure to use the full power of LinkedIn to assist with your search for a new job. It’s important to effectively use your connections and to use the information available on LinkedIn when you’re job searching and growing your career.
Do Use a Job Search Engine

Job search engine sites, allow users to search all the major job sites, company sites, associations and other online job sites by keyword and location, at the same time. Use a job search engine to speed up your job search.

A cover letter is the best way to make a good impression on a prospective employer and a way to show that employer why you are strong candidate for the job.
