New week, New goals
I was laid off from job due to Covid and how it impacted the organization's bottom line. First came the pay cut for all contracts about 5 weeks prior to me being told they had to cut my role and some others.
I have been in this position before and I would like to share some effective job search insights.
Having a strategy is sooo important. Don't rush to just start pushing your resume out there. Having a strategy will keep you organized, focused and prepared.
Find 2-3 good recruiters that you trust and build that relationship
Utilize Fairy God Boss and LinkedIn for networking
Post content that show's your expertise
Keep a detailed excel tracker of positions you are applying for (someone may contact a month after you have applied and you can refer back to your tracker)
Keep an excel tracker of your various company sign in credentials (user name and password)
Joining an accountability group can be helpful. The group can help each of you stay accountable during your job search
Applying for positions on a Sunday can be effective, it puts your application at top of the recruiters inbox on Monday/beginning of the week
Continue to prepare and prep for interviews (i.e. your script, why statement, answer to interview questions, etc.)
Just a few strategy tips that may helpful.
