The struggle of applying to jobs is very much real these days. Some of the parts of applying to a job (like having to type or copy the content of your resume into the application after you uploaded it) are unavoidable.
But some of you are adding to the struggles of the job search by doing it incorrectly.
Some of those mistakes include:
❌ You’re only looking for jobs on job boards and job search engines.
❌ You’re using the same resume to apply for every job.
❌ You’re not sending a Cover Letter when given the option to.
❌ You are not using LinkedIn as a part of your job search.
❌ You’re not following up with companies after applying.
These critical mistakes can completely sabotage your efforts and cause you to lose out on amazing opportunities.
Here are a few tips to help you transform your job search:
✅ Create a job search strategy + get organized
✅ Tailor your resume for each job description
✅ Follow up with companies at least one week after applying
✅ Get active on LinkedIn and build/leverage your network
