Whether you’re looking for a new job while at a current job, or if looking for a job has become your current job, it is hard to stay focused. Days of searching can easily turn into months or weeks of searching. You’ll get frustrated feeling like you haven’t made any progress, and will get even more desperate about your situation.
What you need my friend, is a plan.
Looking for a job can seem like a long. and at times, endless quest. The whole concept comes down to you finding a company who is looking for what you have to offer. It will be hard to stay focused when the end result can seem like it’s out of your control.
You need to sit down and lay out a plan of attack. What are you going to do to look for this job? Here’s some questions to ask yourself when developing that plan.
Do you have a target list of companies that you’d like to work for? Do you know anyone who works there? Can you identify some networking events or places to meet people who could introduce you to someone who works there? Networking is like a web, people are connected to other people in ways that you don’t even know about until you start to ask. If you find yourself having dinner with friends of friends, that’s a great chance to tell them about your シンガポールで就職 search and say “I’d love to get into company XYZ. You wouldn’t happen to know anyone who works there do you? It would be great to get the inside scoop on the company before I apply.”
Are you going to scour the シンガポール求人情報 search websites? Take some time to research the ones that are targeted to your industry. You don’t want to post your resume on each and every website you come across, but identify a few that seem to have an active job board. Posting your resume everywhere on the web could be overkill and a little weird if recruiters and managers repeatedly see your resume popping up everywhere.
Keep an eye on your target company’s websites. You should also check out their press releases to spot any industry news or trends.
You can also contact some recruiters. If possible, ask friends for referrals of ones they have worked with in the past. Different recruiters have different styles, and actually specialize in different industries so you want to connect with one who will actually help you and knows your business. It’s perfectly acceptable to work with more than one recruiter. However, keep in mind that their シンガポールで転職 is not to get you a job-but to find candidates for their clients. If you are a match to one of their open positions, then they’ll jump at the chance to work with you. If they don’t have anything for you right now, ask them for a good time to keep in touch (2 weeks? 3 weeks? 6 weeks?). You want to stay top of mind, but in a good way-not as a pest.
List all of these activities, and then map out your week with realistic goals for each day. If one day your goal is to identify 4 new websites in your industry, then make sure you accomplish that goal that day and cross it off the list. Break down the search into manageable tasks, and organize a schedule of your daily tasks.
Looking for a job can seem like you’re doing a whole lot of nothing at times. Breaking it down into identifiable tasks and goals for each day will make you feel like you are accomplishing something and moving along the path toward your new job.
