It isn’t easy to jump through all the hoops required of a conscientious job seeker, and the rings get especially difficult to maneuver if you struggle with putting together your resume or finding the best jobs on the internet—both technological duties.
Unless you are already technically savvy, getting a job may be so overwhelming you may not want to get started. The good news is that you don’t have to have everything. Take your skills and job qualifications with you, glean the help you need from experts in the field who not only know what they are doing but are in business to help you get what you want.
Here are some options:
- A temp staffing service is in business to help you find work. They assist with resumes, cover letters, job interview skills and more. Plus, temp staffing services have the jobs you need. No need to look online yourself or shuffle through the newspaper.
- Resume writers are a great resource for those who want to do most of the job searching themselves but need someone to do the work of typing and assembling their resume and/or cover letter. Resume writers can be found online or in the phone book. You can also speak with others you know who have used a particular writing service.
- A family member or friend, with writing and organizational abilities, may be able to help you with your resume, especially if you have a first draft completed. They can give you feedback on what works on your resume, and what doesn’t.
- Online resume templates are also a great help. Templates from Microsoft Word are free and come in a variety of job types and styles. Blogs that offer tips on what makes a resume stand out or how to make your presence remembered at a job interview are great sources of help—especially if they are written on a daily or weekly basis that allows for current information relating to the current job market.
- Get involved in social networking online and offline. While it’s easy to talk to someone online and learn more about a particular career, it’s quite another to meet them for lunch or be a part of a speaking engagement. When was the last time you spoke to a group and shared your skills?
Getting a job is no easy task, especially when one considers all the technicalities involved. But be assured you don’t have to do it all alone. Get the help you need by considering one of the alternatives listed above.
