Find Job Openings

Employers look favorably on job seekers who know about them. They also like job seekers who know why they are a good fit. Think about the type of job you really want and go after it.

Now, spend time researching employers. How do you know which employers to research? There are two ways. One is by finding advertised job leads. The other is searching the hidden job market by using the contacts in your network. Look at each employer’s website for job openings.
Here are some ways to find job leads. Once you find job leads, make sure you research each employer. See Research Employers before you apply. Then, contact employers directly.
