Pre-heating the Job Hunt, and Buttering Your Future

By Martina Brehmer

how to get the job hunt started {thelilyhoneylife}

Picture this: a warm chocolate chip cookie ready to be eaten. Now think about the work involved to make that cookie from scratch. It took work, but it was well worth it.You don’t always need a reason to bake, but making a leap in your career deserves some consideration. Then again, much like the way that you might dream of cupcakes, baklava or homemade chocolate chip cookies, you should allow yourself to salivate over your future a bit more often.

Most of us are working our behinds off at our current jobs, and  it’s hard to find time to brainstorm about new career opportunities and adventures. But believe it or not, the best time to ponder what dessert you’ll want next is when you’re feeling satiated. Take it from someone who has made the mistake of ravenously gone digging through the cabinets for that last bit of dated chocolate. It might suffice for now, but doesn’t taste all that great.

Needless to say, the hunt for the dream job requires more patience, acceptance and dedication than baking cookies, but I promise you that if you preheat the oven you’re much more likely to produce the perfect cookie.

How to Heat Things Up

Whether you’re fulfilled by the road you’re on, or actively chasing what’s around the corner, here are some tips for starting the fire.

  1. Keep an eye trained on new companies, fresh products and emerging markets through outlets like Wired, Mashable, TechCrunch, Product Hunt, and Angel List. Strapped for time? Embrace the comeback of the podcast and listen while you commute, sweat, chow down or bathe.
  2. Google yourself. Make sure that you’re properly represented online, and building out your own brand equity. This no longer applies solely to outward facing roles, and I’m seeing this statement more and more: “no social footprint, no hire”. 
  3. Maintain an updated resume. You don’t want to keep opportunity waiting! This goes for your LinkedIn presence too. Additionally, writing about yourself can feel awkward, but writing about your achievements while they are fresh is much easier.
  4. Unleash your inner creeper. While late-night facebook prowling might be frowned upon, doing the appropriate human research while on the job hunt is essential. LinkedIn is a great study tool — not only will you benefit from researching the role and company that you’re interested in, but LinkedIn provides a direct line to hiring managers and members of the team you want to bat for.

Pursuing your next adventure can be just as exciting as an adventure should be, and it can be as smooth as crème brulée done right. Luckily, the way that this cookie crumbles is completely up to us.

This is a 3 part series focused on the job hunt. Keep an eye out for part 2 and 3 of this series, coming soon!

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
    than ever before.

    She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.

    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.
