Your Job Search

Well, your company downsized, or went out of business, or for whatever reason you need a job.

The easiest way to get a job is through personal networking, but I assume that if you knew somebody with a job opening, you wouldn’t be here.

So, you need to search for a job. Make sure that you do all the easy stuff, like letting your friends know that you are looking, and checking the daily Newspaper listings. Yes, it seems like ancient technology, but, many companies still use only the Newspaper to list their jobs. Although many papers list the jobs on their website, others don’t, so be sure to check the physical paper.

The Job resources on my main page AJB.com are very good and will help most folks find a job, if they use them properly.

The most important thing is to cast a wide net. Employers use a lot of different names for the same Job. I often recommend that a job seeker just put in their zip code, and just glance at the jobs that come up.

Of course in a large metro area this could be many thousands of jobs, When you are looking for a Job, you should be treating the search like a Job, searching at least 8 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. This gives you plenty of time to scan all the Jobs.
