Job searching is a full-time job.
At times, it's frustrating and stressful when you feel like you're not making progress after the nth application. However, being unemployed myself I've learned to get a bit more creative with my efforts in finding the right fit. Below are my tips.
Advice on Creating a Personal Website
Create a personal website, it will help you in your job search. This seems like common sense but I somehow didn’t consider it 4 months ago. When I embarked on the task, it took a lot of patience and learning. It took hours of analyzing what work I wanted to highlight and then choosing the right words.
Advice on Creating a Video Resume
Create a video resume, it will help you in your job search. When I embarked on the adventure, I had never created a video. Most marketers have their hands in video creation and I knew I wanted to learn that skill. After countless hours and revisions, I finally produced my animated video resume.
Advice on Creating a Blog
Create a blog, it will help you in your job search. I can't quite remember when I published my first blog but I do remember feeling nervous about publishing my content. Since then, I've become more comfortable and have published multiple posts. A blog is an important tool for any job seeker because it increases your visibility and demonstrates your expertise.
Advice on Attending Networking Events in December
Attend networking events, it will help you in your job search. A couple of days ago, I read something on the "What people are talking about now" section of LinkedIn. It said that December is a bit of a weird time for job seekers as the holidays slow down the hiring process. As such, the best solution for us is to attend networking events. That means industry networking events and company holiday parties (if a friend invites you otherwise it might just get a tad bit awkward).
Lastly, when in doubt, pinky out.
