Six Simple Steps To Help You Refine Your Job Search

George Sterling | Friday, September 21st, 2012

Finding the right job can often be difficult for individuals. Below are six simple steps that you can take to refine your job search and start a career that you have always wanted:

Deciding Your Career Path

The first step to take is to decide the line of work you want to follow. Create a list of at least three work lines that interest and match your personality the most. Contribute enough time to see how the industry that interests you is doing and decide the work that you want to do.

Create A Specific Resume For The Job

Once you have made up your mind about a particular industry, create a resume according to the needs of that industry. For example if you decided to work in the computer technology industry, create a resume outlining your achievements and your interests regarding computers and technology. Create multiple resumes for different industries; don’t send the same resume to every job you apply. The resume you create should highlight your experiences in the past and should also outline your skills with the job position. For example if you are applying for a graphics designer and have worked with software such as photoshop, mention it in your CV.

Keep a Close Eye on the Position You Applied For

No matter where you have applied for a job, always keep track of it by obtaining contact details of the person you had discussion with when you applied for the job. Never hesitate to follow up with the individual to get updates on the hiring process.

Keep Communicating

If a certain company calls you for a follow up, don’t hesitate to ask them if they need any more information about you. More information on your part always benefits employers in making a decision. However, make sure to not go overboard with information that does not benefit the position you have applied for.

Don’t Give Up

If you find yourself not being contacted by anyone, don’t give up. Check your resume to see if you have added all the appropriate information. Sometimes you may need to reduce the information on your resume to include only the key points you think are necessary for the position you have applied for. If you had an interview but did not get the job, never hesitate to ask why. This will provide you with critical information for your next interview.

Following these steps will help you better understand the entire job search operation and may even help you in getting a great job.
