Job Hunting and Resume Writing

Job Hunting

Here are some quick time-saving job search tips that will help your hunt for a new job.

Set Up A Separate E-mail Account This will help you stay organized. 

Keep Resume Up-To-Date Have an up-to-date resume ready to send even if you're not currently looking for work. If you're not on LinkedIn yet, create a LinkedIn profile and start making connections with people who can help your job search.

Don't Wait to File for Unemployment If you have been laid-off, filing for unemployment benefits right away can tide you over until you get a new job.  

Get Help Without Spending Extra Money Utilize free services that provide career counseling and job search assistance such as college career offices, state Department of Labor Offices, or your local public library.

Create Your Own Templates Have copies of your resume and cover letter ready to edit.  That way you can change the content to match the requirements of any job you want to apply for, but, the contact information and your opening and closing paragraphs won't need to be changed.

Get Job Opening Notifications By Email Use job alerts to sign up for job listings by email.  All the major job sites have search agents and some websites and apps specialize in sending announcements.
