At times, finding the best job feels as insurmountable as climbing Mount Everest. You may think about giving up or pursuing a new career path but I’m here to tell you that we’ve all been there. There is a light at the end of the tunnel; you will find the best job for you if you change your job search practices.

 

Here are 5 useful job search tips to help you increase your job opportunities.

 

Find your ideal job:

Before you start your job search, it is crucial that you know what you’re searching for and if it suits your skillset and personality. Look into how your skills will help or if you’ll be wasting your time there.   Also take into consideration a company’s work environment/policies, reputation, and organizational structure and see if you’ll fit in or not.

 

Pitch Yourself:

If you’re getting selected for interviews but not getting any offers, then the problem might be ineffective interview responses.  You’re probably not selling yourself properly, which is vital for nailing every job interview. Imagine yourself as a product that is needed to be sold. Sell yourself in a way that brings out the best points of your character and skill set.  If you’re a people person, then show (with examples) how great of a coworker you were in your previous work environment.  Give concrete examples of your plus points by providing previous work examples, references, or stats on how you positively impacted your previous company. Use every evidence in your arsenal to convince the interviewee without having to physically tell them. Actions and proof sometimes speak louder than words.

 

Use Social Media:

Don’t just use Twitter for just leisure when you can use it for work and fun.  LinkedIn, for example, is a social media site created for career networking. You’ll find countless job postings from HRs that you can directly contact, instead of sending in an application in hope of being called. If the contact information of your desired company’s HR isn’t listed, then simply use LinkedIn groups if you want to contact them by analyzing which groups he/is are posting in. You can also interact with companies on their Twitter or Facebook pages to get noticed.

 

Read job postings attentively!

If you’re not getting any interview requests then you’re making a common job-seeking mistake, which is applying for the wrong job. Carefully read through all requirements of every job posting related to your profile before applying in order to find the job most compatible for you.

 

Use job search engines:

Popular job search engines such as Monster.com, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc were created just for you! Struggling job seekers should use them to accelerate their job search. All these sites contain daily updated job listings for all job types, simply search for your job and expect to see large lists of job opportunities suitable for you.

 

If you’re finding no luck in your job search, then you just need to change your job-seeking process. Instead of hoping to get calls, it’s better to be proactive and actually find the right jobs for you.
