How to Make Your Job Search More Productive

It’s not secret that searching for a job can feel like a job all by itself. But how can you make your search more productive? The team at Reviews.com spent six weeks researching the top job sites to figure out which ones are the best tools for your search. Here’s what they found:

 

     The best search tools have fresh, frequent, and unique listings so you’re always current, as well as offer features like email alerts so you don’t have to aggressively check the site to know if anything new has come up.

     The ‘metadata’ that job sites provides is the most important part of the process — rather than looking at each listing as a potential job, think about what kind of other information it’s giving you: which companies are hiring, what their requirements and credentials are, and who you might know that currently works there.

     Tools like Glassdoor can help you learn more about what it would be like to actually work for a company — which can help you tailor your resume and cover letters to better reflect the company’s culture.

     Network, network, network. It’s important to proactive, and not reactive, when it comes to your job search. Making connections, both online and off, is a good way to get your foot in the right door, without having to cast a wide net of resumes online.

     Keep your head up! Don’t lose focus or stamina if it feels like your job search is going nowhere. Remember, job sites are a great tool, but they alone can’t get you the job, only you can!
