Job Search Tips:
- Discover jobs on online job board but apply for them through the company’s website whenever possible.
- A Google search will pull-in jobs from multiple job boards.
- Always save the job searches that bring back the results you desire – You will then receive email alerts when new jobs are posted.
- Online job boards prescreen resumes to determine if candidate is qualified for the position. A Word document is better than a PDF document in this prescreening.
- Prescreening is looking for words on your resume that are also included in the job description. Work to align your resume to the job description whenever possible.
- Once you have applied for a job, save a copy of the job description in your files. If you are called for an interview, it is very helpful to have the original job description when preparing.
- “Easy Apply” is easy, but not always the fastest way to the hiring manager.
Our job coaches can help with any one of these tips.
