  • Be organized.
  • Set goals.
  • Have an open mind.
  • Network, network, network.
  • Let your contacts know you are looking (if possible).
  • Research what you think you are looking for to ensure you are searching for the correct openings.
  • Research possible industries in which you are interested in working.
  • Get yourself noticed (in a positive way).
  • Utilize social media.
  • Search LinkedIn for possible connections into companies.
  • Block out specific time for your job search (otherwise “I’ll do it later” becomes too easy).
  • Follow up after applying (and be polite).
  • Volunteer to make connections.
  • Make sure your voicemail is professional (and remove any ring-back tones).
  • Locate references who are individuals of influence who can best help you land your next position.
  • Always be aware of how you are acting – you never know who is watching.
  • Don’t wait – it is never too early to begin looking if you know the need is coming.
  • Join professional organizations and associations.
  • Have a “dream job”, it gives you something to work towards and a place to begin.

Don’t get discouraged – the process will take longer than you expect.
