When successfully searching for a job, there's a list of "do's" and "don'ts". Here are the top 3 things you should NEVER do when searching for a job.

  1. Never use a 'one size fits all' resume
    Don't use the same resume for every job you are applying for. Instead, customize it for each position by including relevant keywords from the job posting throughout. Customizing your resume will increase your chances of a phone call or an interview!

  2. Never submit a resume/cover letter without proofreading
    Always spellcheck! There's no better way to get overlooked by a hiring manager than to send in a resume or cover letter loaded with typos and grammatical errors.

    Ask a friend or family member to read your resume — it’s easier for someone else to find errors since they haven’t been staring at the same document for days.

  3. Never forget to follow up
    After your interview, always follow up! Set aside a few minutes after your conversation to send a quick thank you email.

    Sending a note thanking the interviewer for their time will show that you’re genuinely interested in the position and that you’re a true professional.

What would YOU add to this list?

The job search is a complex, oftentimes frustrating, process. However, by controlling only what you can control, while not worrying about things beyond your control, you can more easily maintain your confidence and momentum.

For example:

Not getting traction with online applications?

  • Find the hiring managers and get your resume and cover letter directly to them via LinkedIn.

Not hearing back after an interview?

  • Follow up once, one week later, and then MOVE ON, don’t dwell. If companies are interested, they will get back to you.

Getting interviews but no offers?

  • Speak with a coach or a trusted advisor to see if there is an area in your interview prep you can improve upon.

The key is to not worry about anyone else’s behavior and only focus on what YOU can control throughout the entire process.

Do this and you’ll keep your mind at ease.

Your time, especially during a job search, is incredibly valuable. If you have job searched, especially in the last few years, you know the whole process can take several weeks, or more.

What you may or may not have experienced is having a company completely disappear on you, even after making a verbal offer.

While this is relatively rare, you do not want to be on the receiving end of this unprofessional behavior. In fact, you don’t EVER want to let ANY time slip away waiting on anyone during your job search.

The simple solution is to just remember that until you have put pen to paper for a role, you’re not done.

Do what is in your control and keep job searching until an offer is presented in writing.

Fewer words are not always better. You only have a limited amount of time to capture someone's attention and you need to stand out.

Too many job seekers make the mistake of either being too generic with their descriptions or focus more on their tasks instead of their accomplishments.

No one else has achieved what you have specifically achieved.

Dig deeper to make your experience relevant and interesting.

Actual before and after example below:

You only have a small window of time to determine if a company will be a fit for you. You MUST pay close attention to every aspect of your interactions with a potential employer before signing an offer letter.

Organized companies will:

  • Communicate clearly with you
  • Be on time for all interviews
  • Respect your time every step of the way
  • Turn on their cameras for Zoom calls, if your camera is on
  • Leave plenty of time for questions
  • Make you feel comfortable
  • Recognize that interviews are discussions, not interrogations
  • Clearly present and negotiate the salary and all terms

Companies who fail at these fundamental areas cannot be ignored. If you don’t feel right after speaking to one or more people at a company, than there is a good chance that working there will not be any better.

Alternatively, if you’re comfortable and even more excited about a prospective employer the more you speak with them, then that is an encouraging sign you’re on the right track.

Trust your gut when dealing with companies, pay attention to the process, and you will easily be able to make the right decision when it’s time.
