Whether you have just begun looking for a job or have been doing so for quite some time now, it will always seem to be an exhausting experience. Unfortunately, because you do not have any other option, you have got to remain dedicated sincerely. What you can do, however, is to accelerate the job search, by employing smart tactics to cut down on time being invested and yield the same results nonetheless.
Streamline your job hunt: when looking for a job, the normal tendency is to go through all sorts of tasks that you think are fitting to your criteria; but when you focus on just one position it is far less time-consuming and keeps you sorted mentally as well. So, before you decide to accelerate the job search, give yourself some time and streamline your thought on what is that one position that you would currently like to pursue that would suit you the best.
Hone your resume: if you have not got your resume written by a professional hand or it has been composed quite long ago, its time you dust it once again. Get hold of a professional resume writer and hand it over to him/her to be honed expertly, so that it can get back its shine and catch the eye immediately. An expert resume writer knows best how what to and what not to include in a resume, for it to stand out among the crowd. Doing this ensures that you have taken the speed of the job search up by one notch.
Prepare your pitch: it is the right time to accelerate the job search process at a fairly impressive pace but to further it, buckle yourself and prepare that irresistible pitch. It should be, to the point and highlight precisely those points which will persuade your prospective employer to notice you making a difference, to the well being of the organization. It does not have to be an essay but a brief and precise bouquet of words, in not more than three or four sentences. Rehearse it well assuming that this would be your only chance of breaking through the hardened wall (Interview) of the employers.
Keep your objectives attainable: as a person on a job search, one important lesson that you cannot afford to forget is to attach reality to the goals you set for yourself. There is no sense in aspiring for something that is not achievable; on the contrary, you could land yourself in a pool of low self-confidence and enthusiasm to move ahead. So stipulate the time that you intend to dedicate towards the search and stick to it. This is the same as studying; there are students who study all day long and yet score unimaginably poor results in the examinations, whereas, students who put fewer hours of effort in studying again make those hours count, are seen to be scoring better results. So, you need a reality check for all your objectives in the lookout for a job; it will surely help speed up the process.
Your network your strength: in this technologically advanced world, your networking skills are your best friend; for you may not even realize how to end up landing a position in a desirable company through them. LinkedIn has, thus, assumed an extremely crucial requirement in this scenario. Even if you are on vacation, do not skip to carry out conversations with individuals and groups on LinkedIn and making new acquaintances through it. Consider it to be your pathway to be seen; in other words, to make your online presence felt. Employee referrals are taking on eventually, and that is how a lot of vacant positions are being filled presently. Do not restrict your conversations to only those topics which are directly linked to the role you intend to play, but widen your horizon and give your opinions and be open to discussions that may even vaguely be related to it.
Your motive is to land yourself an occupation; hence, you must be prepared to give in all it takes to emerge a winner. Well then, revamp the speed and get your dream job ahead of others.
