Tips to finding a job in the new yearAbridged: Snagajob

NEW YORK, NY -- Reflect: No matter how successful your job search was this year, think about what worked and what didn't. Try to find any lessons you can apply to the new year. Were you prepared for interviews? Did you forget to spell check? Going over your past mistakes can make a huge impact on your job search moving forward.

Follow up: We always encouraged you to follow up. It's a super easy way to stand out among other applicants. Be sure to check the job posting just in case the employer says not to reach out. If you're in the clear, wait 3-5 days and then go in person, call, or email to ask about the status of the position. Be Prepare: Job seekers typically think they can wing it in an interview. Big no no! You should be ready to answer all common job interview questions so that you don't seem unprepared to the interviewer.

Mock interview: While preparing is always important, there is nothing more beneficial than actual practice. Doing a mock interview with a friend or family member before the big day will calm your nerves and allow you to see what you should work on before the actual interview. Maybe you say "um" a lot or twirl your hair. Catching these things early will make sure you nail the job interview.
