#1 Remember: Quality over quantity. You only need one company to hire you. Spend time identifying the right companies to work for, not contacting hundreds of companies.
#2 Learning how to sell yourself in a job search is the most important skill you will ever need, no matter what job you have.
#3 Do what you love; the money will follow. Learn what you are good at. When you find what type of job you do best, it will be easier for you to
go out and get it.
#4 With a local job search, don’t overlook local media. These organizations may provide access to employers who use radio, TV, and websites to advertise job openings.
#5 When conducting a confidential job search, don’t submit your resume to job fair organizers; often these are distributed to all participating companies.
#6 Eliminate time-wasters from your job search. A lot of the time that could be spent on finding a job is squandered with activities that seem productive, but aren’t.
#7 It’s tempting to spend time on the Internet when you’re job hunting. It can help alleviate stress and it feels like you’re doing something, but it’s not always productive.
#8 Being the first to reply to an ad doesn’t mean you’re more likely to get the job. Most employers don’t sit in front of their computers reading each resume as it comes in.
#9 Treat your job search as a full-time job. Write out task lists and perform them systematically. Action leads to results.
