Before conducting a job search, we highly recommend the following steps:

  1. Create a Job Development Plan. To avoid aimlessly applying for jobs, you should clearly identify your job preferences and restrictions before applying for any job.
  2. Identify Industry. To avoid working for a company you are not interested in, you should clearly identify your industry preference. For example, the job description and requirements for a Customer Service position will be different in the Information Technology industry and the Real Estate and Leasing industry.
  3. Choose Work Environment. To avoid hitting the snooze button because you do not want to get dressed and leave the house to go to work, you should clearly identify your work environment preference. Avoid work-from-home scams by applying directly through the company’s site.
  4. Set Up LinkedIn Profile. Provide the employer with another way to know more about you and what others recommend by setting up a LinkedIn profile before applying for jobs
