Searching for a new career opportunity is truly a full time job. While many job seekers begin their search with complete confidence when un-returned phone calls and dwindling bank account statements bombard you its natural to lose confidence.
Here are 3 Tips to Boost Your Confidence + Find Employment
- Your Resume is the Key to Your Future: Make sure your resume is up to date, free of grammatical errors and is catered to the jobopportunity you are seeking. It may seem like a no brainer but I receive countless resumes for job seekers who are seeking employment is career field A but send me a resume outlining their experience in career field B.
- Networking: No matter what industry you are seeking employment in, have a strong network of contacts is essential to knowing when a new career opportunity becomes available. A great way to build and create your network is to create a profile on Linkedin, let your friends/family know you are seeking employment and attend local networking functions.
- Utilize Free Career Development Resources: There are several free career development resources available for job seekers. Many local colleges and universities offer assistance from creating your resume to offering free career consultations. The Illinois Department of Employment Security is a great resource for job seekers and those who are currently unemployed. The new illinoisjoblink.com program allows job seekers to search current openings throughout Illinois and they are committed to helping veterans secure employment.
No matter what your career goals are there are many resources available to help you create a professional resume and help you secure employment.
