Career builders focus on different facets of career
Career builders know that working hard at your job will only take you so far.
You must also learn how to maximize your career opportunities. Build up your
education. Build your writing and speaking skills.
More interviews means more job offers
The only way you’re going to get that job offer is if you get that job
interview. To get job interviews you must focus on
quality and quantity. For quality, focus on your resume and yourself. If you
were an interviewer, would you hire you? Spend some time working on your
interviewing skills. Consider going on practice interviews (with jobs that you
aren’t that interested in) to get you up to speed.
Quantity is also important. The more jobs you apply for, the more interviews you
go on. The more interviews you go on, the more career opportunities you get. Use
job search sites like Career Builder to help you find job opportunities. Career
Builder has many online tools you can use including an automated job search that
will alert you to potential fits. You can also post your resume on to Career
Builder so that potential employers can contact you for interviews.
If you feel that your career has stagnated, consider improving your
“salability.” Do you need to work on your education?
Distance learning is a way you can
bridge what you are doing now and where you want to be in the future.
If you don’t get the job offer after the interview, don’t be afraid to follow up
with the interviewer. Find out what happened; did somebody better suited come
along? If so, how were they better for that position?
