new_job_graphics_01As time goes by it becomes harder to get a really good job you like and you struggle in seeking the best job you wanted for a living. To help you with this dilemma, a group or recruiting experts have formulated some great ideas on how to land a satisfying job for the year 2009.

Here are the tips to a successful new year:

Exhaust All Options

You tell everyone that you are seeking for a job you want. Meet the possible employers for interview. Submit as many resumes to any work places you know. As you make your cover letter and resume, mention the value of your contributions to previous employers, including how you helped cut costs, reduce inefficiencies or improve profitability. There are opportunities available, but job seekers will have to work harder to find them and cannot afford to leave even one stone unturned.

Network With Smarts

Be efficient in building some network of like-minded individuals. Share your knowledge, help others be better, and invest time in building strong, long-lasting relationships. These are the relationships that could turn into future job leads. Be very active in your community and work closely to local leaders to have the probability of getting a job.

Flexibility Is Key

You should be adoptative to a new kind of work environment, the size of the company, or of the location of the office, and be aware that with the advent of technology, a new location just may be your home office. If you are flexible your chances of getting hired increased considerably.

Diversify and Listen

Make sure that you diversify in the way you communicate your previous work experiences and listen very attentively. First, make a laundry list, just for yourself, of all the projects, contributions, ideas, etc., from your last three positions. Second, listen closely to what the recruiter and/or hiring manager is asking you. They are looking for something very particular, whether the opportunity is leadership or entry-level. Walking someone through your resume or citing examples that they’re not seeking could hinder your ability to seem specific to their job. You want to be very clear about your transferable skills and your willingness to adapt to their environment.

Tailor Your Resume

Diversify what you write in your resume based on the roles that they are applying for. For job seekers to increase their chances at success, they should shape their resumes to reflect relevant matching skills with the job posting(s) they are applying to. By doing so, a human resource person will more easily understand how a job seeker’s past experiences apply to the posted role. This method increases the chance of being considered a strong candidate, receiving an interview, and, ultimately, a new position.
