6 Ways To Keep Your Job Hunting. What’s Changed?

Over the past 10 years or so, Job Hunting has changed dramatically. Even if it was just many years ago when you were last on the work search, you need to reacquaint yourself with how it varies today.

While websites like Monster and CareerBuilder were strong in 2007, many job seekers relied heavily on social media. Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have made it easier for job seekers to research, track jobs, and connect with employers. It has also become an important tool in a job search that few could have imagined ten years ago.

If you have been looking for a job since COVID 19, you need to know what areas are still being hired and be sure that you are looking for jobs in industries and locations that you would not normally consider. If you see a job advertisement that you like, apply, because it is advantageous to be the first applicant for a new job.

In this article, a former recruiter and job search expert offer 6 very smart ways for job seekers to find and use the information provided. Whether you are applying for a job or conducting a job interview, here is everything you need to know to make a successful job in the digital age.

Searches Have Moved Online

Right Keywords For Your Resume

Polish Your Social Media Presence

Be Prepared for the Virtual Interview

Once you have your resume and cover letter, the next step is to get it to the decision-maker who has the authority over the job interview and hopefully offers you the job or at least drives your job search. Getting an interview doesn’t mean you’re going to have a job, but it does mean you have a resume for that job provided you get an interview for the kind of job you want. If you are offered the job, you can stop looking for it, no matter how well the interview went.

Sharpen Your Skills

If you find a job-seeker you like, act quickly because that person will not be looking for a job for long. The fact that you cannot have a personal conversation with them prolongs your job search process.

Transparency is a Priority

Talk about whether you are looking for a new challenge in your career, getting to know new industries or areas of focus, or whether you need to find new jobs because you are moving. Be honest and communicative with your answers and talk about your current work, your past work, and your future plans.
