Tips For Creating A Strategic Job Search Plan

From Career Coaching 360

You need to keep on top of your search too by keeping up with trade magazines, industry publications, company websites, niche career sites and online job board ads. You'll learn which industries are hiring, which companies are hiring, and where and what are the hot jobs!

Create a target list of potential companies that interest you and their web sites. Visit their website weekly for on-line job postings, and announcements for departments expanding. Also make a list of job search sites that offer high quality jobs. Conduct a search on or Google for the job role and the city you want (example: software engineer, Portland). Review all the job sites listed on the top three or four pages, and bookmark only those sites that list promising job opportunities. You should also include niche sites too such as in your plan.

You'll find that each site varies in the quality of positions listed (lower-level to senior-level, as well as salary ranges), plus the type of industries, or vertical sectors listed. Focus your attention only on those sites. Once you've created a list of your top job search sites, make a commitment to review those sites weekly, while continuing to read trade and industry publications in your industry. Stay on top of your job search.
