Consider the Time of Year
January and February are two of the best months of the year to search for a new job. Why? Businesses are looking to get a kick-start on the new quarter and looking for fresh employees to meet the demands of the winter season. A surprising number of jobs open up during these two months as a result. In January especially, companies are desperate for top talent.
Ask Your Network for Jobs
Your network is your friends and family. First, consider what industry or job you want, as well as the career path it may take to get you there. Follow that up by asking your network for information about it. You might know someone who can help you achieve your new career goals. Even if you aren’t successful, you wouldn’t know if you didn’t try.
Revise Your Resume
Make sure that you’ve made a new draft of your resume before you get going. If you haven’t used your resume in a while, go back to it and update it. Use keywords and skills that best match your career path. Do all of this a few days before you start hunting for jobs. That way, if you notice a mistake, you can make changes before you submit any applications.
