There is so much information on how to conduct a job search. How does one keep it all together?
Let’s start with the basics.
Don’t use the same resume for all your applications. You should have a master resume and each application you submit should be with a resume with your first name, last name, and the company name. This is a good way to keep track of things.
Keep a list of all the application you have submitted. When you applied how you applied, did you reach out to anyone? When did you interview?
Your application resume should have your contact information. Phone number and email address. I would also put your LI profile on it. This isn’t where’s waldo? or a Treasure hunt. Put all the information on your resume for the company to contact you.
Check your voicemails, have a voicemail box that’s set up, and delete your voicemails often. You don’t want the employer to call you and then not be able to leave a message.
Network, Network, Network. Reach out to the recruiters, see if you know anyone at the company, see if they are hosting any networking events.
All the tips aren’t going to help if you don’t have the basics down. You have to crawl before you walk, this is the crawling aspect of your job search.
