Finding a new job isn’t easy especially in tough economic times. Generally during quiet times over the economic cycle, there are usually more people looking for work then there are available jobs. For every job advertised there most likely will be over a hundred people applying. Keeping this in mind, when looking for work you want to make sure that you branch out into using different job searching techniques. Sometimes it may just be trial and error to see what works for you.
So here are my top 3 ways to find a new job:
1. Apply online with a tailored cover letter and resume specific to that industry.
2. Cold call employers in your industry seeking work that has not yet been advertised (reverse marketing yourself)
3. Drop by local businesses with your resume and cover letter seeking work that has not yet been advertised (again, reverse marketing yourself face to face)
