How to Find a Job
Finding a job is a serious undertaking. Whether you’re looking for a summer job, or embarking on a search for a new career, the process of finding and applying for jobs can be long and arduous.
In the job hunting section of JobMonkey we break down the job search process into several easily digestible steps. Furthermore, the blog has a category specific to job search tips with new posts appearing regularly!
If you’re searching for a job, then soak up process tips and all kinds of advice from JobMonkey. We discuss the process of setting goals and the importance of analyzing the types of things you want to get out of your job. Do you have goals? If so, then write them down. For example, if travel is your main objective you will likely approach your job search differently than someone who’s main career goal is finding a job where they can work from home. Figure out what you want – up front – and you’re more likely to end up happy in the end!
In addition to advice pertaining to goals, we discuss resumes in detail. Whether you’re simply applying for a short-term summer or other seasonal job, or trying to nail down a dream career, a resume that ‘pops’ is absolutely critical. Find out about the elements of a resume, and get tips that will help your resume get noticed. We also include examples of action verbs as well as advice on how to highlight job specific skills. Read about resumes, cover letters, and thank you letters in our job hunting section and monitor the blog for new posts too.
And what of the job interview? We cover this topic too! Get tips to help you succeed in both phone and in-person interviews.
The more prepared you are before a job interview the better chance you’ll have of landing a job.
Now, here’s something that separates JobMonkey from many of the typical job boards: we provide detailed breakdowns of a growing number of industries. Perhaps you’ll discover a job opportunity you didn’t know about previously. Use JobMonkey to find out which industries have more open jobs than applicants. In every industry specific section of JobMonkey you get an industry overview, job descriptions, pay and benefits information, links to industry resources, and access to job listings. Often times we include interviews with experts who share their insights.
Understand the process of finding job opportunities and getting a job. Arm yourself with great tools and information.
