o Read over each job description in full and work key words into your cover letter when applying

o If you take public transit, make sure that the position is on a public transit route and the hours the position and public transit comply

§ If you can take the time to do a ‘test’ run

· After a few weeks take the time to adjust your resume and cover letter to the job market

· Make sure that you are adjusting your cover letter for each position that you are applying for

· Change how you are looking for employment as they may be advertising directly on their website versus a general job service website


How To Get A Job Online, Being An Entrepreneur & Managing Your Online Profile

· You must clearly have defined what your profile is about. You want to it well defined before you start. The profile will change/progress/grow as time goes on, but you want to know what you want out right out of the gate. If you have more then one profile you will want to consider all and any cross over and cross promotions. Make sure you are taking the time weekly to build up your online profile.


I hope that you end up finding the job that you desire and that you can work in that position for as long as you need to. There are plenty of opportunities out there for you so take them when you can. Company loyalty is a thing of the past and you should want to work somewhere new every 5-7 years, 10 years max at any more job. Please keep in mind that what is good for me may not be good for you and this ‘formula’ may work for me but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will work for you and that is ok. Find a ‘formula’ or ‘pattern’ that does! Always do you.
