With unemployment above 9%, it's critical to stand out from the crowd when looking for a job. Association Media & Publishing offers you these tips to help you get the attention of employers:
Create a target company list. Find out everything you can about the company and then customize your pitch for each one.
Network. Both online and face-to-face. Even in informal settings, think about how you can expand your network. Go out to lunch or dinner with friends/colleagues and strike up a conversation about your job search and your target companies. You'll be surprised by the number of contacts your networks have.
You've made it to an interview – be prepared. Be ready to provide specific examples of the results you've achieved. Also have questions ready to ask to make sure the organization is a good fit for you.
Follow-up. Whether it's after an interview, a lunch or a new introduction, follow-up with the person you met and thank the person who made the connection for you.
