When you list the priorities, you know your limits and also you know which one you can give up. When you have aim, managing the job search prosess will be more easier.

And also you can define which one you never want to have. When you search a job, take a look time to time and renew if needed.

  1. Set the Alternatives for Seeking a Job

There are several alternatives to look for a job. Firstly I listed the some alternatives:

  • Using job search websites
  • Searching companies’ own websites to find out vacant positions
  • Getting information via references
  • Getting in touch with consultants
  • Career expos

You can combine listed alternatives based on your preferences. Some of them are easier than the others. For instance, most of the employees prefer to use job search websites. Companies post the job advertisement to fill the vacant positions, candidates apply and process keeps going with interviews. We will discuss interviews another article.

Depends on the job specifications, alternatives can change. Think about what you can do differently or more effectively.

  1. Networking

Another part of seeking a job is connecting with other people who can support you. They can be your friends, families, ex-colleagues or ex-managers. Have a call with them. Networking is also impoartant to find a job. May be they can refer to another person who is searching for a candidate or tell you another alternatives to seek a job.

Keeping in touch is always important.

  1. Job Search Process

We can not be sure how much time does looking for a job take. Hereby you should try to turn into this period to your advantage. Think about how you can do it. Improving foreing language skills, learning new applications or programmes, taking course to improve soft skills could be considered. You can also explain them in interview, it is beneficial for both you and your new employer.

  1. Having an Efficent CV

When you start to look for a job, preparing CV is the first task. It represents you when you apply the job. Sometimes being a good candidate is not enough.
