JOB SEARCHING TIPS
Through our years of experience, the following are practices
that we have found successful for job seekers at all levels.
1. Research fields and professions that you desire.
2. Get a free critique by a skilled resumé writer. This is
usually your first point of contact with a potential employer and your resumé
should be viewed as a marketing document.
3. Do not limit your resources. Utilize all potential sources.
Sometimes the employment hunting process is a numbers game and the more
contacts you make the better your chances.
4. Personal and professional networking is still considered the
most valuable employment tool.
5. When e-mailing resumés, also follow up with a hard copy in
the mail,on good quality, conservative color paper, if able to do so. Very few
people do this. It gets you noticed.

those who place people in your field.

mailed "Thank You" note or letter. (Not a Handwritten Thank You Card)

friends to network and find out if they have any job openings and present them
