How is your job search going?

“Like sh*t.” is what I often hear from new clients when I ask.

Does your job search suck too? Here’s five ways to improve your job search when it's going like sh*t.

Get clear on what you want BEFORE looking for jobs.

Decide what you expect from a company, what your non-negotiables are, & what you’re willing to be flexible with.

Have a badass Resume AND Cover Letter ready in your arsenal.

Don’t wait until you find a job listing to write these. You’ll be late to the party.

I recommend keeping a Cover Letter template and customizing it to each job application. Quick and efficient.

Make sure your resume will satisfy both the automated tracking system and HR.

Sign up for notifications on LinkedIn when new jobs based on your criteria are listed.

Be among the first to apply. Don’t procrastinate.

Network! Who do you know that has an ‘in’ at the companies you are applying for? Ask for an introduction.

If you don’t know anyone, find out who the hiring managers are and connect with them on LinkedIn.

Reading their profiles and content will clue you into what they want in a candidate.

Add that to your resume. (Your skills, not that you LinkedIn stalked them).

Last, do some hiring yourself! Hiring a good career coach will transform your experience and results.
