5 Ways to Turbo-Charge your Job Hunting

RocketManFREEAre you looking for some ways to turbocharge your job hunting?  Have you got stuck in a rut and doing the same thing over and over again, is not bringing different results.  Have a look at these 5 simple tips for inspiration. 

  1. Begin with the end in mind – get really clear on what you want
  2. Schedule time each day to job-search. I’m not talking a cursory scan of the internet.  Get really focused for at least 1-2 hours per day.  And if you are unemployed then make it your full-time job to find a job!
  3. Let everyone in your network know you are available for work and what you want to do (refer to point 1)
  4. Don’t discount speculative letters. They DO work!  The trick is to get it to the right decision maker.  That’s where your homework comes in.  I’m a great fan of going back to the old-fashioned way and send a printed CV and cover letter – emails can (and will) be ignored, but it’s kind of novel now to receive a letter!  I’ve never known anyone open up up a letter and immediately put it down without reading a bit first
  5. Follow up! Ring a few days later to introduce yourself and ask whether they have received your CV and whether anything is available now or possibly in the near future

Give it a go – what have you to lose?
