Job Hunting: Guide To Get A Better Job In 2017
If you do not find yourself satisfied with your job anymore, you always have a choice to resign yourself to a life of dull and miserable days in the office and look for a better job - a job that will feel more rewarding and fulfilling.
Now that the labor market is getting stronger, 2017 is a great year for job seekers as more and more companies are eager to hire. While the whole job hunting process is not a piece of cake, here are some ways to help you land a job and work for a company you will love more than hate.
Instead of looking for just jobs, look at companies
According to Credit.com, you should expand your search to look for companies instead of just looking for specific jobs; look for the ones you will be happy to work for. Talk to a hiring manager of these companies and share what you can bring in to the table as they may be able to provide you opportunities you've never had.
Raise your profile
Raise your profile and pick up new skills by getting yourself immersed to more opportunities that will widen your range of expertise, according to Money. This way, it will be a lot easier to sell your experience to potential employers and you will be able to create more credibility, trust and intimacy.
Find a mentor and seek advice
Look for a person in your field whose skills and expertise you can emulate and ask them if they can mentor you. Learning from these people will help you become better at what you do. You do not need to be shy to ask. At the end of the day, both you as the mentee and the mentor can benefit from the relationship.
