MANAGER, COST ACCOUNTING AND BUDGETING
If you have decided today is the day
to launch a new job search campaign,
there are at least four things you should
do before you begin.
Without this preparation, your job search
will take longer and not be as successful as
it could be - like traveling to a new destination
without a GPS or map or fixing dinner for
your family without a menu in mind and the
necessary grocery items.
The Four Essential Parts of the Solid
Foundation for Your Job Search
Your initial urge may be to feverishly send
resumes to recruiters and to companies in
response to job postings. Before you start the
search, tackle these four tasks. When you
have completed these four tasks, you will
have a solid foundation to launch your suc-
cessful job search.
One: Define Your Goal
Your career goal should be a specific def-
inition of the type of job you desire.
Couple that goal with what you need to do to reach
Candidates with goals are more efficient because they
have narrowed their target and focused their efforts.
Time is not wasted on dead-ends or mismatches.
Also, employers want to hire decisive, intelligent people
who act with purpose. Candidates making random moves
to secure "any" job are less attractive to hiring man-
Two: Market Research
Now that you have defined your career, there are a
few things to investigate:
• Is there a demand for this occupation?
• What is the forecasted demand of this occupation?
• Is this a thriving industry?
• What is the profile of the employers in this industry?
For example, is there a mixture of large and small
• Are the employers and jobs in a location in which you
are willing to work?
The results of your market research may indicate that
you need to refine - or possibly replace - your goal, but
you won't know until you have done the research. Better
to do this now than later to avoid the loss of valuable
Three: Update Your Resume & LinkedIn Profile
With a viable career goal in mind, you are now ready
to write your new resume and update your LinkedIn
By writing your resume with a goal in mind, you can
present yourself as the ideal candidate for your target
job. Customizing your resume and LinkedIn in this
manner will demonstrate how you meet the needs of
the hiring employer.
Review example job postings to be sure you are hitting
the points important to the hiring managers in your
Four: Create a Plan for a Multi-faceted Campaign
You are almost ready to launch your job search cam-
paign. Before you do, create a plan. That plan can be as
simple as something you jot in the "notes" app on your
This is a plan to which you will commit and define
detail actions you plan to take on a daily and weekly
basis. A multi-faceted campaign is best because you
cover all fronts.
This comprehensive campaign will include online net-
working, real world networking, distribution of your
resume to recruiters, searching job postings, researching
companies, cold-emailing your resume to target com-
panies, and posting your resume on job boards.
Launch Your Campaign
After you begin your job search campaign, fine tune
your strategy. It is possible that after interviewing for
a particular job, you may decide that occupation is not
right for you. If so, go back to steps one and two to
evaluate your goal. As you modify your goal, modify
your resume and possibly your campaign plan. The four
tasks outlined above will serve as a foundation for a suc-
cessful job search.
