Your next career move can be exciting, but you cannot rely solely on your resume to land your next role. While you should make every effort to create a professional resume tailored to the position to which you are applying, there are other important steps you may need to take to get the position you want. Think strategically and utilize all the tools at your disposal to help land your next position.
Use technology to diversify your search and find the best match for you.
Create a list of companies you would like to target during your job search. Utilize sites like Glassdoor and Indeed to learn more about the company by reading reviews and viewing current openings. Search the company’swebsite to view current job openings and learn more about the organization.
Perform keyword searches for positions by using different job titles, e.g., “CNA” and “Certified Nursing Assistant” or “Cook” and “Chef”. This will enable you to find all applicable opportunities for the position you are seeking.
Old-fashioned networking is always a key strategy when job hunting. Contact individuals in your preferred industry for employment leads. Perhaps, ask them out for coffee to learn more about the industry, their organization, job searching tips, and referrals. Engage with your connections through professional and social media sites. Employers welcome referrals so tap into your network to help you get in the door.
