Forget about vague resolutions to get healthy or read more. If you truly want to have a successful 2019, make it the year you find a new job. Here are some of American StaffCorp’s tips for securing your dream job for the New Year:
Revamp Your Resume
If you’ve had the same resume since the early aughts, it’s probably time to upgrade. For best results, limit your CV to one page (two at most) of your career highlights. While recent grads can start with education, more experienced workers should focus on relevant job experience, paying special attention to skills and results. Don’t forget to mention measurable achievements, such as the fact that you raised profit margins by 10 percent last year. The goal is to show companies what you can do for them.
Update Your LinkedIn Profile
It’s no secret that employers are drawn to passive candidates. One of the best ways to get a new job is to showcase previous achievements on LinkedIn. Take time to update your profile with recent positions and seek out endorsements from others in your field. With a little luck, companies will recruit you before you have to send out a single application.
Get Off Your Couch
Of course, finding a job is about more than redesigning your resume or hitting send on a few emails. The savviest job seekers make an effort to connect with others in their fields. From attending industry happy hours to registering for alumni mixers, you should be taking steps to expand your network. You never know when a connection will lead to an opportunity.
