    Q: Who Can I Notify About A Fraud Or Scam Attempt?

    Who Can I Notify About A Fraud Or Scam Attempt?

    Q: Avoid the desire to obsess on conducting the most precise search.

    There are two kinds of errors you can make - apply to the wrong job (which usually results in being ignored and put in a database) or not applying to the right job (usually from not having enough time to find all of the appropriate jobs).

    Q: Efficient Job Searching

    You want to be as efficient as possible when searching for jobs. Being efficient will help reduce the need for multiple searches and will help you avoid checking the same sites every day. Your time is valuable and you want to minimize the time you spend in front of a computer so you can be out networking.

    The benefits of our overall approach above are:

    • Minimizes the number of times you see the same job. (repeats)
    • Spends less time combing through the irrelevant search results. (fodder)
    • Increases your chances of seeing the jobs that actually interest you. ('right' jobs)
    • Identifies job titles or sub-functions that you may not have thought about before.

    The bottom line is that you will be able to concentrate on the more relevant job opportunities.

    There are some risks with this approach. If the posting contains an obscure title or an abbreviation, there is a chance it could be missed. There is a good chance everyone will miss it if it uses 'Mngr' instead of 'Manager'. If you use a broad term in the title such as Coordinator, it could take a long time to scan all of the job listings returned by the aggregator sites (Indeed, SimplyHired), given that they search thousands of websites for jobs.

    This is especially true if you are looking across multiple geographies or for non-management positions, such as a specific Engineering discipline.

    It is good to cover all your bases when searching for a job in this economy, and online job searching should be only one of the avenues you use in returning to employment..

    Q: Having a Successful interview

    Successful interviewing is essential to getting a job offer.

    • That means practicing interview questions and answers.
    • Dressing in appropriate interview attire,
    • Being able to present your skills and experience to a prospective employer.
    Q: Job interviews are always stressful

    Even for job seekers who have gone on countless interviews. The best way to reduce the stress is to be prepared. Take the time to review the "standard" interview questions you will most likely be asked. Also review sample answers to these typical interview questions.

    Then take the time to research the company. That way you'll be ready with knowledgeable answers for the job interview questions that specifically relate to the company you are interviewing with.

    Q: Make Your Professional Information Available

    When you want employers to find you, it's important that your resume and the profiles you post have specific information regarding your credentials and qualifications.

    Your resume should contain:

    • Keywords If you're not sure what to include, use a job search engine  to search for jobs that match your qualifications. Once you come up with some terms that fit, use them in your resume. That way, you will be found by employers seeking candidates with similar qualifications.
    • Job Titles. Employers are often interested in candidates with specific experience and will search for that i.e. Online Marketing Coordinator or Telephone Sales Manager.
    • Qualifications. Be specific - if you have Microsoft Certification or an MBA, say so.
    • Affiliations. List the professional organizations that you have joined.

    Update your resume regularly. Many resume databases have options so employers can search only the newest resumes or those posted with a certain period of time. So, you'll need to update your resume frequently so it's found.

    Q: Search Word Strings

    Creating strings, or combination of words, to consolidate your search is very useful as well. Try using "Manager OR Director" (if you are mid-level management) or "Chief OR CMO OR SVP" to optimize your search. This structure allows for the most efficient gathering of jobs in a single search per board, and will include the other variations such as 'Director of Function', 'Function Director' and 'Director, Function'.

    Some of the job boards provide Titles or Levels for you and eliminate the need for creating strings. When using these, beware of odd titles and abbreviations, as these could allow you to miss positions that would be of interest.

    Also, 'AND' and 'OR' may drive different logic on different Boards, so experiment to see which results in 'Either included' and which one results in 'Both included'. Many people want to use Leadership, Creativity, Team Player and other words that may be desired traits that people see in themselves, but are not relevant to their objective in finding jobs (qualifying them maybe). A broader sweep by level or title will increase your chances for seeing all jobs of interest. You may miss some obscure titles, but if the title is that obscure, do you really think you would have found the job anyway?

    Q: Search Words Focusing on Job Level

    To yield your best results, we at JobSerf encourage people to use a Level focus for Search Words. With few exceptions, the four levels of management (Manager, Director, and Vice President ) will provide the quickest and most comprehensive results (if you are manager level or above).

    Q: Searching for a job online is a numbers game

    Please Never Forget This! Volume and quality get results. Force yourself to pick Search Words that will return broader results to ensure that you retrieve more jobs than you might normally have.

    Q: You want to see all jobs that are available

    You want to see all jobs that are available, but you want to see them as few times as possible. Refining your Search Words or creating strings will hopefully reduce the number of times you see the same job on listing site..
