If you’re looking for a new job having a regularly updated social media presence can be a good thing and will put a prospective candidate in a positive light – especially in certain industries that involve communicating with customers and stakeholders.

Conduct a Google search for ‘resume writing’ in your area and you are sure to locate several dozen sites. But buyer beware; there is a major difference between ‘resume writers’ and professional resume writers with supporting credentials.

Use the job search engines to find jobs by using keywords that match your interests and the location where you want to work. Narrowing your search criteria will help you focus your job search and will give you more relevant job listings to review and less non-relevant job listings to weed through.

If you are no longer inspired by the work you do, your environment and those around you, it may be time to go. Pursuing your work objectives with energy, enthusiasm and drive is key to high performance. When you’ve lost motivation for the things you once enjoyed, it is usually a sign that you need a fresh start.

Your email may be forwarded, intentionally or unintentionally, to someone you don’t want to see it. Today, your employer is likely monitoring your company email account. So don’t email recruiters, resume writers, etc. from your office email.

If you have spent the last eight hours posting for jobs online, you have wasted seven hours and 50 minutes. It can be tempting to apply to jobs online. So many positions are listed, and so many appear to be a fit. But while you are hitting the send button, so are 500+ other people.

Send your résumé to the hiring manager. Some of my customers are shocked when I tell them that they need to send their information to human resources and the hiring manager. The reason for doing this is because the hiring manager may see something in you that HR doesn’t.

Cover letters are an opportunity for you to show the kind of date you are: A good letter shows you’ve taken the time to think through the job — and how your skills line up. It shows how interested you are, that you’ve taken the time to familiarize yourself with the role.

As an introvert, with each interaction, it can drain your energy. Therefore, it is important to carve out time before and after interviews to recharge yourself and prepare. For instance, it might not be a good idea to schedule a lunch with a group of friends before a scheduled interview.

Online career profiles such as LinkedIn and Beyond help showcase your resume. They also usually appear in top search results associated with your name, especially when searched with other key words such as your occupation or past work experience. Make sure everything is current. Not only will this help highlight and evidence your professional skills, it’ll help bury any historical data that is old and out of date.

Many of these men and women were spurred to discover what really matters to them and transform their work into a passion and masterful craft. No one jumped off a cliff. They reflected. They planned. They sought an apprenticeship or a mentor. They didn’t blindly take a leap. Rather they pursued well-researched moves.

Before you go for an interview, you should find out what the market rates are for the job you’re looking for. There are salary surveys available online, and if you’re dealing with a recruitment agency, your consultant should be able to advise you on the salary range for the position you’re interviewing for.

Knowing that you have a barrier to entry in a new job market, be as flexible as you can on start date. Unless you are at an executive level, don’t insist on paid relocation. Try to land an offer, and other items can be negotiated from there.

Interviews, whether in-person or over the phone, should end with an understanding of what the next steps are. If it was not covered, be sure to ask. The employer may also view this question in a positive way that you care about this opportunity and have a desire for it.

While you may think there will be countless people searching for work during the holidays, keep in mind that many of them may be thinking like you too, that it’s time to take a break. If that’s the case, you’ll have more access to employers as the number of resumes they’re likely to receive will decrease.

A new role can be quite stressful, so give yourself time to settle in and know that no one is perfect. Make the effort to understand the way things work and always be willing to ask questions and listen to the answers. Whether you’re changing roles within an organisation or joining a new one, you will need to learn new skills for success.

If recruiter is looking for someone with more experience – or a different type of experience, they will go on to the next candidate. Make sure you read the job posting carefully for what they expect candidates to have in terms of experience and credentials. If you don’t meet these requirements, consider finding a different position to apply to, or know that you’ll have to make a clear case for why you are suitable for the position (if you are).

When it comes to choosing your focus, every individual is different. What are you passionate about? What skills do you enjoy using on a day-to-day basis? How important is it that you are among colleagues who “get it”? Do you see yourself working at a multinational company, helping to change the organization from within? Or, do you prefer a more entrepreneurial environment? Identifying which quadrant of this matrix you want to focus your search on is a great first step to mapping out your job search strategy.

There are some things about your job that you just can’t change, but you are always in control of how you react to what happens around you. Don’t let the negative stuff at work set the tone for you. You’re better than that. And you’ll FEEL so much better when you get back to being you.

Getting fired is a disruptive life event, to say the least. But, it can also open doors and lead to great and unexpected opportunities. If you’re tempted to feel like a victim, challenge yourself to rise above it. Instead of asking why this happened, focus instead on how you can bounce back and what actions you need to take to do so.
