7 tips on how to get a new job

Finding a new job can be a daunting task, but by following these tips, you'll be well on your way to landing your next job this year. So, if you are job hunting and finding a bump in the road at every turn, listen to this episode of The Job Hunting Podcast, where I answer seven of the most common questions I get as a career coach. By addressing each question, I created a list of 7 bite-sized tips you can adopt in your job search to help you succeed in finding a great new job. 

Here are seven tips to help you land your next job: 

  1. There is no need to reveal your dissatisfaction with your current job during the job interview. (05:18)
  2. Working with recruiters means you must be patient and self-manage your need for feedback. (15:41)
  3. Keep track of your job application conversion ratio at each stage of the recruitment process and analyze it to identify areas for improvement. (26:40)
  4. When networking and interviewing online, your background is part of the first impression. (37:37)
  5. Research and adhere to applicant tracking system (ATS) compliance rules for better chances of getting through the first stages of the application process. (43:43)
  6. Having good references is essential. Make sure you have a few people who are willing to speak positively about your work. (47:08)
  7. You don't need to job hunt alone. There are better ways to achieve your goals. (53:27) 

Please listen to this episode to better understand each of the tips I have highlighted above. You can search them using the timestamps if you're interested in one of them in particular. 

I firmly believe that with some preparation and persistence, you'll find the right opportunity. Job hunting doesn't have to be complicated or stressful if you have a great roadmap to follow. Keep listening to The Job Hunting Podcast for more advice!
