While you may have the skills to do the job, do you have the skills to get the job?
An effective job search is a full time job with its own set of skills required to be successful. Techniques are constantly changing. What worked 10 years ago may not be as effective today.
Before you hit the pavement with resume in hand, take the time to make a job search plan. You need to consider:
• How to market yourself; on paper, in person, and online.
• Where to find networking opportunities and why it’s essential to getting the job.
• The job search strategies that get results – but no one talks about.
• Why informational interviews are often the key to success.
• How to navigate online application forms.
Learning how to market your skills is the key to success. An essential part of a good marketing plan is selling your skills with a good cover letter and resume. This is your first impression. A resume is what convinces the employer to call to book an interview. Once you are contacted, you must be able to sell yourself in the interview. Learn the secrets not only to a targeted resume and cover letter, but obtain the knowledge and practice to ace any interview with confidence and skill.
