Tips on improving your job search in 2018 Abridged: Monster

NEW YORK, NY -- Set Realistic Expectations: Setting realistic career expectations is key to conducting a successful job search. If you are not seasoned in your field of choice, look for positions that will let you broaden your skills. You may not secure that management job this time, but you will be well-positioned for future opportunities.

Review Your Resume: Your resume may not be attracting the right attention, and it could be time to spiff it up a bit. Ask someone to critique your resume, and be open to their suggestions. Reevaluate Your Approach: Looking for a job is a full-time job in itself. If you are dedicating a few hours a week to your job search, consider stepping up your efforts.

Reevaluate Your Situation: If you are employed and seeking greener pastures, reassess your situation. Now that you've had a chance to look around, you might decide things are not that bad where you are. Take a Break: It may sound simple, but sometimes what you really need is to get away from the stress of job searching. If you can afford to, give yourself permission to take a week or two off. You will be surprised how your outlook can change.
