  1. Finding the Right Job 2.3.14

  2. Step 1: Brainstorm • Knowing what you want before you apply for jobs is important. Don’t waste your time applying for a job you won’t take once you get it. • So, take a few minutes to brainstorm and figure out what you want/what you’re well suited for. • What types of things did the reading suggest you brainstorm/consider before searching for jobs?

  3. Step 2: Search • There are multiple ways to search for jobs and not all are necessarily job search websites. • What were some of the places/methods the book mentioned for job searching?

  4. Honing in: Campus Career Services • Not only will Career Services look over your résumé, help you practice interview skills, and hold career fairs, but they also have resources for writing job materials, including videos and handouts.

  5. Websites • The most likely place you’ll look for jobs is on job search websites. What are some of the sites your reading mentioned? • Other websites not listed in the reading: • Glassdoor.com • Indeed.com • https://angel.co/ (GREAT for startups!)

  6. Don’t forget to… • Visit websites of companies you’re interested in. • These don’t always make it to job search engines. • Look for the “employment,” “jobs,” or “careers” link at the bottom of most websites. • https://www.urbancompass.com/

  7. Tips for searching • As you start searching for jobs you’re interested in, take note of keywords you see in those jobs. Sometimes, this will help you refine your search to find more jobs relevant to your interests/background. • Take note of things you notice like salary ranges, so when you’re asked your range by a company who doesn’t post their own, you know the salaries of comparable jobs.

  8. More tips • Use “Advanced Search” when it’s an option • Try looking at newer postings first • Can narrow by salary estimate, can eliminate certain keywords • Full time versus part time • Recognize limitations of the interface

  9. Informational Interviews • What are they? • Should you consider them? • Will companies be amenable? • How to? • send inquiry (email) to Director of HR or Department head or head of whole company if small firm.

  10. Practice • Find a partner, and you’ll receive a handout. • Complete all items on the handout. • Then, we’ll report back to the class.
