GET HIRED: Information You Need for Your Job Search
I took the time to gather a series of resources for people on the job search. This will be a long read. If you are serious about finding a new job, this post is for you. For readability, it will be broken up into three parts of the job search - prepping for the job search, the job search, and the interview/hiring process. Feel free to follow the Jobcasers linked within - they are awesome people with great advice who can help you!
PREPARING FOR THE SEARCH
Patrick Coppedge 's post Make Sure You Have A Job Search Strategy is a great place to start. Before your search, you should sit down and examine what your goals are - besides finding a job. It will help make the process faster, and easier.
THE JOB SEARCH
My post What they mean by ‘Overqualified’ will help translate what an employer means when they tell you that you are overqualified. Knowing what they really man will aid you in alleviating those concerns for them or for another employer and get you hired!
Ashley Wilson 's post DON’T let your resume fall through the cracks!! will help your resume get through applicant tracking systems (ATS) that employers may be using for online applications. You have a better chance at the job once it gets through and onto the hiring manager’s desk!
THE INTERVIEW/HIRING PROCESS
My post You should ALWAYS follow up an application!! gives you the best way to follow up job applications - from what you should say to how long you should wait.
Veronica Jefferson ’s post Cred Checks Employment or No Employment - The 411 goes over why companies will perform credit checks on candidates for jobs they are hiring for, and what you can do to pass them in the future.
