Finding a job can be nerve-wracking, exciting, frustrating, exhausting, and even anxiety-inducing. Unfortunately, we’re not here to tell you it’s an easy feat toΒ land a job you love. However, there are ways to make the job search easier (and less exhausting, anxiety-inducing, and all of the above). Here’s your step-by-step guide for how to get a job. We’ll cover:

My take:

Consider the Logistics

β€œThink of your job drivers,” Matthew Warzel, certified professional resume writer and former Fortune 500 recruiter, says. β€œWhat’s important to you? Time, money,Β benefits, 401(k), location, product offerings, company culture, image, and values, progressive versus traditional setting, remote versus on-location, passionate project opportunities, etc. Each is different for each person. What motivates you? What’s your passion? What can you do that will make you happy in 2 weeks, 3 months, a year?”

Nailing the Interview: Do Your Research …

β€œI always tell my early career clients to gain confidence by researching the role, and investigating the industry, major players, products, offering, and services, and news,” Warzel says. β€œLearn the terminology and respective process impact in this new role. Understand the function your new role would play in the entire operations. Why is there an opening? What pain points do theΒ hiring managersΒ have because of the opening?”

Practice Your Answers

β€œGet your stories down,” Warzel advises. β€œYour narratives are vital and not only for the job but for your pay rate! Pay attention to the industry, competitors, the company’s news, and the open role within the industry. The more knowledge and understanding of the value you present, stories to share of your accomplishments, and understanding of the role and company, the more confidence.”
