Finding a Job IS a Job

No matter what level of position you are seeking, there are certain tips that are universal. Looking for that next career move today is more complicated than in the past. One would think that all the new technology of today would make finding a job easier – quite the contrary.

The world of the internet has changed all the rules. Job seekers today have to realize that what’s on the web could have a direct correlation not only to whether or not they get a job, but whether or not they get that first call for an interview.

If you are looking for a job, you need to know what people can find about you in the internet.  Do you have a Facebook page with inappropriate pictures posted? What are people saying about you? Do you have a family MySpace page and are your children telling stories about you and your family?

How you are presented on the internet can drastically affect the success of your job search.  Another “knock out” medium could be your phone message. If a potential employer calls, do you have a professional message on your phone or do you have loud and inappropriate music?

Today, more than ever, people are turning to recruiters to help them find a job.  As with most professions, some are good and some are not.  Some value the placement while others value the relationship.  It’s important to find the right recruiter for you. Good recruiters establish, build and maintain relationships with industry decision makers constantly.

Good recruiters have relationships with people you don’t.  They can help you to better understand a specific opportunity and can provide insight into company culture and leadership style.

Good recruiters are invested in you. They want you to perform well because you, as a candidate, are a reflection of them during an interview. Your interview performance validates the recruiters assessment of you and therefore helps him strengthen his client relationship.

Good recruiters help you manage the interview process from beginning to end. Good recruiters are great resources.
