How are you searching for your next job?

Posted by | February 1, 2012 | Interview Tools

One of my Twitter followers is looking for a new job and lives in Arizona. Cathy wanted to know about  Career Centers.

The question is a great one. Career Centers can be a valuable resource when job hunting. Finding an agency that has the experience and connections is essential. And this applies if you are job searching in Arizona or any other state in the Union. Since Cathy wants to stay in Arizona (I live in NJ so I can’t  blame her for wanting to stay where its warm) she is searching for someone who knows the local economy, the local business and their needs. She is looking beyond just posting her resume on LinkedIn,  “spraying, then praying” as she sends out hundreds of resumes via online job offers, then praying she’ll hear from them.

My thanks to Cathy for getting me thinking about how people find jobs. Once you find out that most of the major newspapers now partner with Monster, you see that many people are looking at the same jobs on-line. Finding a local source with up-to-the minute listings gives anyone an edge.

In Arizona, I know that Valerie and staff at Accurate Placement offers such a service. Cathy can submit her resume to hundreds of job opportunities in Arizona via their website http://www.accurateplacement.com/ Although much of what Accurate Placement does is on-line, there are real people behind the website interested in helping people find jobs.

Once you find a good source for reviewing all open jobs, then the work really begins. There’s researching the companies, preparing for interviews and picking out what to wear. Then thank you cards to send, second interviews to prepare for and finally salary negotiations.

Remember, finding a job is a job! So use all the resources at your disposal to find the job of your dreams. Cathy is!
