7 Tips to Jump-Start Your Career Search

The search for a new career can be tedious and time-consuming. With the proper steps and resources, though, you can put your best foot forward and jump-start your career search efficiently and effectively. Take these seven tips into account to help you land the exact career you are looking for:

Update your online profiles.

Focus especially on your LinkedIn profile, as almost every recruiter sources this professional platform. Be sure to select the “open to new opportunities” option on your settings to let people know you’re looking (unless it is a confidential search).

Add references to your LinkedIn account.

Ask connections to endorse you on LinkedIn and gain recommendations from your references. This is a great way to separate yourself from the competition.

Attend conferences.

If you have the opportunity to go to conferences that are specific to the industry, do it. At these conferences, you will be able to network with many decision makers from relevant industry providers.

Freshen up your resume.

If the opportunity arises and someone asks you to send your resume, you don’t want to respond, “I’ll get it to you as soon as I update it.” Strike while the iron is hot and have your resume ready to send off at a moment’s notice.

Get input from peers.

Ask for help in your search. Spread the word that you are looking for openings and ask for advice on your resume. Anything helps!

Utilize online resources.

Check job boards like Indeed and CareerBuilder (among others). There are many job postings to review and you can even set up job alerts that will notify you when new jobs that meet your criteria are posted.

Find help from experts.

Recruiting and search firms that specialize in your niche will know of non-advertised opportunities. They are also typically very well connected with the hiring mangers in the industry. For the Home Care and Hospice Industry, that firm is Exact Recruiting!
