Secrets to job search success
DENVER, CO -- Create a targeting strategy: In order to make a job search effective it really helps to be clear about who and what you are targeting. This means being clear about what type of company you are looking to join, what type of role you want and in what industry. Harness your network: Knowing the right people can get you places. Take a harder, deeper look at your network and connections. Consider working with a recruiter in your industry. Be creative about it and don't be afraid to ask for help.
Interview preparation: Interviews can be a scary thing for some of us. Do your homework! Read up on the company and the role. Make sure you know who it is that is interviewing you and what to expect in the interview. Know what you want: Spend time getting clear about what you want to do, what you will enjoy, where you want to work and what you want from that role to be fulfilled.
Know your value: In order to articulate and communicate your value well, you must first know and believe in your skills and talents yourself. So learn about yourself. Evaluate yourself. Get to know what you are good at, what you can do, what your skills are, what you are an expert in, what your strengths are and what you can bring to an organization.
