How to Season Your Job Search to Perfection

Part 2 in a Job Search Series

By Martina Brehmer

After last week’s post on getting ready for your job search, I’m hoping I have you thinking about the future of your career and not just salivating over the perfect chocolate chip cookie. In case you’re catching up, we’re doing a three part series on the ever tricky job search. You can read the first of the series here.

send in more than just your resume when applying to jobs! {thelilyhoneylife}

Now I want to cover something that I’ll admit, stumped me as I jumped into my own pursuit of the dream. I thought that if I nailed my application, the phone would start ringing. All I had to do was showcase my enthusiasm with a colorful cover letter and a resume containing a carefully curated selection of my skills, right? Wrong!

Picking up a beautiful cut of meat from your favorite local butcher and tossing it into the oven for a few hours rarely yields a memorable roast. And worse, it’s wasteful. Submitting an application, even if it rocks, is just not enough. With hundreds, or even thousands of applicants to that role you’re pining after, the only way you’re going to get noticed is if you season it right, and baste that roast until the timer goes off (or you get that call you’ve been waiting for).

 

The Spice Blend for Job Searches

  1. Set goals. Keep a spreadsheet for your activity, and color-code it by action.
  2. Stand out by following up. Most job postings contain information about the recruiter or hiring manager associated with the opening. Having trouble finding this person? Hit LinkedIn, Angel List, or even a contact form on the company website and don’t be ashamed of showing your enthusiasm with that extra little bit of effort.
  3. Think about your network and reach out to friends that are connected to companies that interest you! Successful employers look to their team members for tips on who to hire, sometimes offering incentives to those that refer quality human capital.
  4. Sell yourself and your brand. Be proud of the value that you’re bringing to the table – this is not the time to be shy! If you don’t grab this opportunity by the horns, someone at your heels will.

Opportunity comes from getting in front of the right people, and giving them cause to linger. Some applicants may be lucky enough to find themselves at the top of the pile but with a little bit of extra effort, I guarantee your job search results will taste better.

    I do accept as true with all the concepts you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. May just you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.. canadian pharmacy online

    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.

    “Enough!” He (I presumed) walked up to me, demonstrating that I had a head of height in advantage, and gestured imperiously for Bekhat to move away from me. Given the circumstances, what could she do but obey? As she did so, a pair of the brutes moved from their line to flank her, though they did nothing more.

    The little man drew from one sleeve a small stick, looking as though he had pulled it from a bush to scrape his teeth on his way over, and dragged it along the ground in a circle around me. As he completed the circle he spat on the joining and straightened again.

    I grew alarmed as he drew a small knife from somewhere or other, but he only cut his own finger and splashed a few drops on to the dust. “Now, creature,” he said, looking me in the eyes at last. “Simply walk over my circle, return to your home, prove me wrong, and we shall trouble you no more.”
