The Best Ways To Find Your Next Job
Finding Lakeland jobs in this current economy is quite challenging. So in case you are looking for a job, you have to go through some unconventional ways to find the one you are looking for.
The first thing you should do is update your resume and upload it to your LinkedIn profile, then next, you need to tap into your network and see what awaits you in the corner.
Connect with other people
Think of the most influential people in your network and establish a relationship with them. Maybe an old college classmate is already a head of a department in a company you want to work for. You can reconnect with them, and see if there are positions that you are qualified for. Even a small cup of coffee with an old friend can go a long way towards getting your dream job.
Tap your alumni network
Make it a point to add at least three to five of the members of your alumni association to your network. People who share the same school, same values and same community tend to help each other find Lakeland jobs. If you were previously inactive in your alumni’s projects, then start joining their activities now. Attend meetings and connect with the members, especially those who are in position to hire you.
Whether it’s an event hosted by a professional or a nongovernment organization, attend it. Once you’re there, see to it that you connect with one person and make friends with him/her. If you can, get a list of attendees beforehand and check the people who can help you land your dream job. Without being imposing, look for an excuse to meet again after the event and put your best foot forward.
Maximize your LinkedIn connections
Unlike Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, LinkedIn is the social network for the professionals. This is where you can connect with the right people. You can search potential jobs according to your industry, qualifications, university and interests. Even high-ranking officers are in LinkedIn, so you can connect directly to them.
Ask for recommendations
What can help you in getting that dream job is to ask for recommendations from friends or even acquaintances. Though it’s hard to trust someone and just recommend him for a job, you should be able to prove yourself worthy of the work you want. Maybe you have a friend who is working in a big conglomerate? You may want to ask for his help, so he can recommend you for a position.
