Job Search Resources
You never get a second chance to make a great first impression! Make sure you put your best foot forward. View the links below for helpful job search information:
The resume is your most important job search tool. It is often the first point of contact between you and a potential employer. Ensure that your resume fully represents all that you have to offer. Refer to our resume section for further details on how to make your resume the best it can be!
Traditional job search strategies are not always the most effective. Employ new methods of identifying potential opportunities. Networking can be one of the most successful ways of tapping into the hidden job market in your area. Many job openings are never formally advertised. Utilize technology in terms of online job boards and company websites. Register with a staffing agency like SELECT, and become eligible for the array of positions and services we have to offer. Treat your job search as though it is a full time job requiring you to give it your all. Your efforts will pay off!
Prepare for the interview:
- Research the employer - what do they do, where are they located, etc.
- Find out if you should anticipate a one-on-one, or a panel session
- Know the information you are presenting on your resume inside and out
- Anticipate the types of questions you may be asked and prepare potential answers
- Have 1 or 2 questions ready to ask the interviewer(s) in case an opportunity arises
- Dress professionally
- Arrive no more than 10-15 minutes before the interview
- Do NOT chew gum, bring a cell phone, or someone else with you to the interview
- Smile, look confident, and great the interviewer with a firm handshake
- Answer all questions honestly, and with more than a 'yes' or 'no'
- Be prepared to give examples of past situations from your prior work experiences
- Thank the interviewer(s) for their time and inquire as to when you might hear from them
- Send the interviewer(s) a thank you note/letter
- Follow up with the interviewer(s) if you haven't heard from them
