When you are hunting for a new job, you must be proactive and deliberate in your approach. You must examine what the market is looking for, consider alternatives, be open to different opportunities, and have your action plan formulated.
Create an Action Plan. By creating an action plan, you are able to ensure that you are doing everything possible to find a better opportunity. The action plan should include a "to do" list, a notes section and a completion date. You can use our sample Job Search Checklist to ensure that you are meeting your goals.
Look elsewhere. Companies are continually looking for professionals all over the world. It may be time to consider a different area of interest if you are not able to find a position in a particular desired location. This means looking in other parts of the region and/or country.
Be Diverse. If you are set on using only one approach (i.e. only reading journals for your next opportunity), you will not be able to see the full picture of what is available. Your approach should be well diversified and incorporate different forms of media (i.e. internet, journals, etc.) to ensure that you are getting the most out of your search.
Get Representation. Many job seekers are currently employed, very busy, and have little time for finding the best opportunies available to them. Working with a Professional Recruiter who represents your best interests can ensure that you find exactly what you are looking for, save you time, and ultimately make your job search more successful and rewarding. Professional Recruiters do not charge fees to you for their service. This means that you are able to work with an expert and not worry about having to pay out of your pocket.
