We are now in 2010. If 2009 was such a challenging year, 2010 must be even more challenging. Whether you are looking for a job or not in 2010, these tips are definitely useful. You might want to take note for future reference.
1. Resume and Cover Letter Every Day
It is obvious that you need to send in your resume and cover letter to apply for a job. However, you will also need to send in your resume and cover letter on daily basis until you have found your dream job.
2. Online Networking
Facebook-ing and Twitter-ing or maybe even MySpace-ing. You need to expand your online networks. Networking is essential and helpful. You can get a job faster through online networking.
This is usually important for follow up. You need to follow up with your job applications. Get personal with the HR managers (don’t go overboard though).
4. Go Offline and Go Socialise
Why spend so much time online when going out might be the best idea to meet people (face to face). Meet more people, engage in conversations and you will be able to spread out a word about looking for a job. Sooner or later, you will find people recommending jobs for you.
5. Learn, learn and learn
There is something to learn everyday. What are you waiting for? Get started in learning!
Keep a positive attitude and attract more people to get to know you better. From there, climb your way up through the career ladder.
