  1. Wednesday's classifieds usually have more to look at.
  2. Make a list of all the other resources you have made contact with and follow up with them.
  3. Cover letters should reflect the type of vacancy you are currently looking to fill.
  4. Be familiarized with what's on your resume. Dates, skills, duties, etc. (This will help you verbalize your work history during interviews).
  5. Always keep your interviewing clothes pressed and ready.
  6. Never let them see you sweat. (Hygiene is important)
Feel free to add some of your own

I would add to this the objective on your resume (if you have one).
Its important that your objectives are in line with the position you are applying for. Though many times the objective is generic, some have tailored it to better fit the position they are applying for. Anything that can enhance your resume and set you apart from the pack is always a positive, just as long as it makes sense.

Telephone Etiquette Tips

Telephone Etiquette Tips

Some employers offer you the privilege of calling them on the phone in order to get a feel of who is on the other line and if you handle the call professionally.

Remember, this is the ONLY way they can make contact with you prior to the interview, so please do not forget.....REGARDLESS of what position you are applying for, ALWAYS take pride in presenting yourself and your calls in a professional manner.

When you least think they are not observing, that is when they truly are, so do not get too comfortable and/or relaxed just because they seem laid back.

Job Watch - "Keeping your eye on the prize"

Are you a member of multiple jobsearch websites?

If so, then here are a few tips on keeping your eye on those job openings online.


*It's always wise to make a list of the websites you are a member of and coordinate a weekly visit. Plan this on your calendar. ;)

*Certain seasons have certain job opening trends - If you are looking for a seasonal job, visit the website and call their human resources personnel ahead of time and get familiarized with their hiring process. Ask questions about the job.

* A Federal job posting is not usually open for long (usually about a week and a half for most Fed jobs). Have all of your resume information current.

  • Be Friendly and smille - Your voice projects a personality.
  • Speak Slowly and clearly. Nervous people tend to rush. They can be difficult to understand.
  • Dont' chew gum, eat food, or sip a beverage while talking-The hiring manager will hear it and its rude.
  • Try not to say, "No problem", "uh huh", "Like", "Ya know" - They are annoying
  • Be willing to accept the hiring managers interview schedule - even if you have to reschedule the cable guy
  • Confirm the date and time of the interview - Repeat the date and time back to the hiring mananger "that's Tuesday the 13th at 3:15, I should ask for you "Ida Hireyou" in human resources.
  • Thank the hiring manager for calling you - Ms. Hireyou, thank you so much for this opportunity. I look forward to meeting you. Bye.


If the hiring manager doesnt call you after a week - call the hiring manager. See if she received the application.

Managers like persistent people. Persistence shows that you really want this job.

"Ms. Hireyou, my name Ken Dooit. Thank you for taking my call. I applied for a position as a sales clerk about ten days ago. I havent received a call or a letter from your office. I wanted to make sure you received my application."

If the manarger did not receive the application, offer to fill out a new one. If she did receive your application, ask if you could schedule a job interview.

Good morning!

Here are a few tips that we can follow in order to stay marketable in the workforce.

  • Take additional training at work offered by your employer.
  • Go to school (whether online or just a few classes per week), in addition to your current employment.
  • Choose a degree that pays good money. A degree of which you already have training and/or experience in vs. something you've never tried at all. Stay fresh and focused.
  • Track your employer! Track their new vacancy requirements, so that you will be able to fill their vacancy if you see you meet their job requirements.
  • Dress for success.

<!-- ./end of article hd --><!--- Insert the sidebar information -->
Alison Green, On Monday July 12, 2010, 10:58 am EDT

Do you believe any of these myths about job searching?

Myth: You can only get a job through connections these days.
Fact: Plenty of people--I'd guess the majority--are getting jobs by spotting an ad, sending in a resume, and interviewing. It may not feel that way, because there are so many people in the job market competing for a limited number of jobs and this means that most people are going to get fewer interviews and even fewer offers. But plenty of those offers are going to people without connections.

[See 21 things hiring managers wish you knew.]
Myth: If you can find the right gimmick to make your resume stand out, you'll get the hiring manager's attention.
Fact: You may get attention, but it won't be the kind you want. Fancy designs, having your resume delivered by overnight mail, video resumes, and other gimmicks don't make up for a lack of qualifications and can put off some hiring managers. If you want to stand out, write a great cover letter and have a resume that (a) demonstrates a track record of success in the area the employer is hiring for, and (b) presents your candidacy in a clear, straightforward way.

[See 5 ways job seekers sabotage themselves.]
Myth: I have my degree, so I don't need to start at the bottom.
Fact: Degree or no degree, most new grads are still starting at the bottom rung, which for most people means entry-level work. Employers aren't going to hire you for higher-level positions until you've had time to get some real-life work experience. When employers require a degree, it's often not because the degree itself prepares you for advanced level work; rather, it shows that you meet some baseline minimum qualifications for the entry-level jobs. To get to the more interesting jobs, you'll generally need to add work experience on top of the degree.

Myth: You can't show any weaknesses in the interview.
Fact: The jig is up! Interviewers know you have weaknesses, even if you want to hide them. So they're not going to be shocked to hear you have some. The question is just how they'll fit with this particular position--and that's something you should care about too, because you don't want to end up in a job you'll struggle in, or even risk getting fired from.
Candidates who can't or won't come up with a realistic assessment of areas where they could improve come across as if they're lacking in insight and self-awareness--or, at a minimum, just making it impossible to have a real discussion of their potential fitness for the job. Similarly...
[See 5 things to consider before you quit your job.]

Myth: If you can't figure out what you want to do, you can just go to grad school.
Fact: You go to grad school if you want to pursue a career that requires it. You do not go to grad school because you don't know what else you want to do or because the job market is bad and it's somewhere to hide out for a while.

Grad school is expensive. It's time-consuming. And it generally will not make you more marketable, unless you're going into a field that specifically requires a graduate degree. What it will do is keep you from getting work experience for that much longer, meaning that when you're done, your peers who have been working full-time while you were in school will be more competitive than you. It might also limit you by requiring you to find a higher-paying job than you might otherwise need, in order to pay back those loans (without actually increasing your earning power). And if you apply for jobs that have nothing to do with your graduate degree, employers will think you don't really want the job you're applying for, since it's not in "your field."

Don't use grad school to prolong the day of reckoning.

Job Fairs - Tips

Job Fairs - Tips

Attending a job fair is one of the many ways that you
can locate employment opportunities in both the public
and private sectors. In fact, some job fairs will have
both public sector and private sector employers participating.

How do you work a job fair to maximize your possibility
of success?
Here are some suggestions:

Know who is going to be exhibiting at the fair and
investigate them
. Knowing the participants will let you
focus your attention on those employers that you feel
would be the best fit. A visit to their website will let
you know the types of vacancies they might have and allow
you to present yourself to their recruiters as a solution
for their needs.

Plan your strategy. Don't appear to wander aimlessly
around the fair. Identify the employers to whom you wish
to talk and don't leave the fair until you have talked to
all of them.

Always bring plenty of copies of your resume and business
card
. Also be prepared to take notes to enhance any
follow-up contacts you might make.

Be prepared to interview on the spot. Many private sector
employers are prepared to interview candidates who they
think would be a good fit.

Dress as if you are going to a job interview. Professional
appearance will improve your chances of being noticed and
taken seriously.

Network with other job fair attendees. They might be
valuable sources of information about other opportunities.

Use job fairs as part of your total job search strategy.
