The goal of your job search is to ultimately get a job! There are many things to consider.A successful job search is an effectively managed campaign or personal promotion to assist you in achieving your career goals.

When done well, your hard work pays off. Your job search may be conducted in a variety of ways.

The most effective job search uses a combination of several techniques and approaches including these six keys.

1. A well defined and articulated career objective
2. Reality-tested income expectations
3. An above average job-specific resume
4. Due diligence and pre-interview research
5. Effective networking with different ways to find leads and hidden job openings
6. Balanced follow-up

Regardless of the techniques you use, contacting prospective employers will be a critical factor in determining success. It is essential that your initial contact, whether in writing or over the phone, be a positive one so that you can get an interview.

You will not get a job unless you first get an interview. The interview is the single most important factor in determining whether or not you'll be hired. Remember, your execution of a well-planned strategy will result in huge pay-offs landing the job of your choice and providing value to your new employer!
