Organize – Your Way to a New Job!

blogarticlejan29-2-myresumechoice

Think being a keen organizer is boring? Tedious? Ineffective use of your time? Think again. Getting a hold of your job search is one of the best ways to make it a successful one.

Here are some great ways to clean up your job search – and get an avalanche of interest.

  1. Keep notes

Write down every job you’ve applied to – and are going to apply to. You’d be surprised how many people lose track of where they applied. Imagine an impromptu phone call in which you can’t recall the employer? It doesn’t look so great to the interviewer stuttering and stammering in a desperate attempt to mask your lack of organization.

  1. Detailed notes

Make sure you note important information, including the following:

  • Date
  • Company
  • Job title
  • Contact information
  • Name of “inside” contact if applicable

 

  1. Set a schedule

Decide 1, 2 or 3 days in the week that you plan to devote your job search. Stick to those days no matter what. No excuses.

  1. Capitalize on technology

Use any web-based calendars you can manage to learn. Technology is a great organizer: easy to erase or add details as you go.

There are lots of ways to organize yourself. It’s well worth your time and effort.
