5 Tips to Help you get a Job Faster 


1. Know Your Skills

Be able to articulate what you have written in your resume and relate it back to the particular job you have applied for. Be an expert of yourself. 


2. Have a clear job objective

Be sure to include your career goals that relate to the position. A great job objective indicates that you know what you want, you're clear about your employment goals, you're familiar with the industry or job being applied for and that you can communicate well.  So make sure it is a short powerful statement. 


3. Know where and how to look
Online is just one source of how job seekers can apply for jobs, be creative and think outside the box. 

4. Spend at least 25 hours a week looking

Most job seeks spend only a few hours and as a result are unemployed longer. So be sure to spend more time on your job search if you're looking to get a better job in less time. 

5. Follow up on all contacts     

Network, network and network. Following up with contacts and meeting new people goes a long way.   

Social Media can help you with your job search!  

1. Complete your LinkedIn Profile

Get on and describe your education, employers history, experience and also references.  

2. Clean up your social media profile
You may feel as though you're the only person in your situation without a job, but guess what - you're not. Reach out to people for support. There are many groups and community organizations that provide excellent assistance in the areas of resume writing, interviewing and job hunting. 

3. Stay up to speed 
Concentrate on the skills and knowledge you have and master the skill of marketing your talent. Always maintain contacts and stay in touch with people, and remember don't give up. Jobs don't find you, you find them!

4. Strategic status updates
Be sure to update your status including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. 

5. Monitor and respond
Most importantly, stay current and up to date with what is happening online. Using monitoring tools such as Google Alerts can be a great start.
