Tips for a Better Atlanta Job Search

3 Effective Atlanta Job Search Strategies:

  1. Be assertive and proactive. Don’t wait around for opportunity to come knocking on your door. While cold calling on potential employers can be intimidating, it remains a powerful strategy. It’s important to get through the door first, before your competition accepts the job of your dreams.  You can be professionally assertive without being a pest.
  2. Work your network. Networking should be at the center of your job search strategy. Get the word out to friends, trusted colleagues, and even relatives that you are actively looking for a job, and ask them to keep their eyes and ears open for any opportunities. Expand your Atlanta job search network by joining professional organizations, signing up for job search newsletters and e-mail blasts, contacting former professors and classmates, and by participating in Internet discussion boards.
  3. Say it clearly. When sending out resumes, catch the prospective employer’s attention with a brief  resume Summary that clearly relates how your qualifications match the job requirements. Connect the dots for the reader, making it obvious why you’re the perfect candidate for the job.
We all know how tiring looking for a new career can be.  If you are unemployed, it can be downright depressing at times.  It is imperative that you try to keep an upbeat attitude as this same attitude is what hiring managers are looking for.
