Welcome to the first day of your detox - your job board detox that is. Throughout the month I’ll be sending you tips to help you through “life without job boards”. The whole goal is to help you be more effective in your approach to job search and to leave the “crutch” of job boards behind. I want you to end this month with an appreciation for the other ways to search and a healthier use of job boards. Use them in the most effective way and not as a time waster. Today’s tip: Create a plan for your search for the next 30 days. Yes, a plan. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. There are several steps involved in a quality, effective, job search. Some of my colleagues will list as many as 40 steps and depending on the type of position, it could be that many. For this tip, break it into five key areas.
  • Defining Target
  • Marketing Yourself
  • Connecting with Decision Makers
  • Research and Prepare
  • Go Get It - Interview and Accept a Position
