Treat Your Job Search Like a Job

Find a Job

One of the questions I hear most often from job hunters is “where do I start”? It doesn’t matter whether your hunt starts on CareerBuilder or LinkedIn, as long as you have discipline and focus to treat your job search itself like a job–show up prepared, communicate clearly and work well with others, spend the time to get it done, and stand out. This is the biggest single differentiator I’ve seen between people who are on a long and perpetual job hunt, and those who get snapped up right away.

Here are my three favorite tips to help you treat your search itself like a job you’re determined to do well (but hopefully not too often).

12 tips for your next job interview

12 tips for your next job interview

It’s said that luck favors the prepared. When it comes to job interviews, being well prepared is often what sets the best applicants apart from the rest. Here are 12 of my favorite job interview tips to make your next one go smoothly.

Before the job interview:

1. When possible, know the names and faces of the team you’re interviewing with; consider researching them on the company’s website, or on LinkedIn. Identifying shared experiences and interests helps set the stage for an easy, casual conversation during the interview.

2. Learn about the company’s products or services, and how they work. How does the company make money? How does it present itself by way of branding, marketing, and advertisement?
