Refocus Your Job Search Efforts and Start Preparing for the New Year

Refocus Your Job Search Efforts and Start Preparing for the New Year

2015 is nearly over and now is the perfect time for you to take a step back and reevaluate your job search for the New Year.

You can make a big change in 2016, but start out by pulling back and taking a few moments to decompress. Once you take a few moments to breathe, you will feel more at ease and ready to tackle some new and creative ideas for your job search in the next year. Let’s take a look at some of the ideas you can use.

Use Your Time Wisely

Many job seekers think that the holidays are a bad time to look for jobs. While you may be busy celebrating with family and friends, and you should take some time to yourself, don’t miss out on critical opportunities. Companies are still reviewing resumes so you have a better chance of getting an interview if you’re willing to work around the holidays.

Create a Facebook Ad

Employers are looking at Facebook, but you need to be seen. Instead of just sending out resumes, consider putting together a targeted ad on the popular social media site. Use the tools on the site to help reach the right audience and write creative content that will demonstrate your skills. This will allow employers to find you directly.

Use Twitter More

Facebook isn’t the only social media platform that can help you find a job. Twitter’s microblogging community helps many professionals find opportunities. Follow companies and other professionals to gain insight on the industry. Make a bio that attracts companies to your page. Make yourself available and, above all things, ALWAYS remain professional on Twitter.

Use the Holidays to Network

There is nothing more ubiquitous with the holiday season than parties everywhere. Take these opportunities to meet new people. Never let an opportunity pass by to tell someone that you’re on the job market. People know people and connections can be easily made. Get out of your comfort zone and go to a party that you wouldn’t normally have attended.
