3 Job Hunting Tips
I'm pleased as punch to announce that I've got a new job as a copy director for a local health care marketing group. It's tough to find a job in this market and here are some tips I learned:
- Don't waste your time on Monster. The number of jobs actually filled through these sites is startlingly small. Use these sites to see who has openings only.
- Spread the word you're looking. Tell all of your friends and connections you are looking for a job. All of my interviews were with people I already knew from the industry from working with them in the past to friends from the soccer field.
- Network. Attend events in your industry and set a goal to meet three new people. Find out what people do and ask if they know of any openings at their company.
