LANDING YOUR DREAM JOB IS HARD WORK. Abridged: Los Angeles Times
Want to know the secret to landing your dream job? Hard work. Getting hired is all about persistence and focus. It means throwing yourself out there over and over again. Along the way, there are things you should do:
- Apply directly to a company, online and off. Many companies post openings on their websites. Try getting the name of someone at the company and write to that person.
- Tap the hidden job market. Tell relatives, friends, family, and trusted colleagues that you are on a job hunt. The word-of- mouth route, also known as networking, can still be invaluable. Dedicate a portion of each week to keeping relationships alive.
- Look into contacting a recruiter. Employers hire executive search companies to help them find new employees. These companies find prospects by combing their resume databases, soliciting resumes and calling hot shots they hear about from former clients.
