If you’ve been looking for work and getting discouraged, now is a great time to reevaluate your procedure and tweak your process. Here are some ideas for getting back on track to get the results you want.

  • Review what you’ve been doing. Take a moment to stop and consider what you’ve been trying. Think about what has worked and what hasn’t. Make a list of your successes and failures and find the common themes. Then use that information to make better decisions as you move forward.
  • Find a job coach. There are professionals out there whose sole purpose is to help you get hired. Make use of your alma mater’s career placement center, or visit KB Staffing for expert advice on getting work.
  • Preparation matters. Learn what interviewers commonly ask of job candidates and make sure you are ready to answer those questions with confidence. Consider taking part in mock interviews to help refine your interviewing skills.
  • Follow up. Don’t just send out resumes blindly and hope for the best. Check the job posting to make sure they don’t specifically state that they don’t want you to reach out, but if it seems appropriate, make contact! Wait a few days after you submit your application, and then call, email, or stop by in person to see if they have received and considered it. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results.
