Six Steps To An Easy Job Search

By Tony Jacowski

The Job scenario has never been better than in the recent past. Especially after the lull that followed leaner years, this year is turning out to be really a wish come true for job seekers. With the manufacturing and software engineering industries doing so well, these growth vehicles are back in the news for all the right reasons. But wait a minute - does this mean that it is a cakewalk for every Tom, Dick and Harry to walk out with a job offer? Not quite! This time around, recruiters and employers are taking no chances after having been bitten by a spate of economic slumps and mass layoffs.

Internet job exchange companies have paved the way for a successful job search by simplifying and in most cases reducing the number of steps in the process leading up to a job interview. Here we take a look at the 6 easiest steps to a job search.

1. Identifying Your Area Of Interest: Whether you want to be in the software engineering field or in finance management, it is important you identify it before you arrive at the threshold. Look back to recollect the field where you had at least above average successes. This will also show you your strengths.

2. List The Skill Sets Wanted By Employers: Every advertisement specifies what an employer is looking for in a candidate. Check whether you have these before applying. You may want to invest in advanced management training, such as Six Sigma Training, which is currently experiencing very high demand.

3. Make A Striking Resume: A good resume highlights key points using headings, bullets, etc. Organize the structure of your resume in such a way that it matches key skills just as they appear in the top portion of the advertisement. Also, use bold fonts to highlight job titles. Use interesting verbiage; for example, instead of the bland "contracts officer", say "contract deal closer".

Searching For Jobs: Equipped with an exceptional resume and having prepared properly for interviews, take the next steps:

4. Locating A Job That Interests You: There are traditional ways of searching for jobs. These include newspaper ads, Internet databases, the Bureau of Labor Statistics for government jobs, etc. Although the Internet provides tons of job listings, you can't ignore the traditional offline advertisements. Some companies want to avoid Internet placement of ads because of the hassles of sifting through tons of resumes that they receive.

5. Placement Agencies: Placement agencies or employment companies are another way that you can get your resume out there. These recruitment agencies have agreements (contracts) with employers for filling their recruitment needs. Agencies complete all the pre-employment formalities before short listing candidates to be forwarded to the employers. These jobs are often not advertised and only registered candidates of the agency are called for pre-selection interviews. The advantage is here is that there is often less competition.

6. Referrals: Sometimes companies rely on referrals. Although this eliminates the hassles of sifting through tons of resumes, it is a kind of assurance of the character of the candidate. So, networking with present and ex-employees of employers can provide surprise job opportunities.
