I’ve had many people write to me asking how they can find a full-time job.
Many have been laid off and are struggling to find work.
Even more have lost jobs due to outsourcing and hiring freezes. Whatever your reason, if you’re hoping to find a full-time job that pays $15 – $26/hr, then this blog is for you.
Follow these 3 steps and your chances of success will skyrocket:
- Prepare Your Resume
- Get in the Right Mindset
- Use MyJobsCorner to Search
Step 1: Prepare Your Resume
Your resume is meant to be a concise document that clearly outlines your experience and skills in a way that proves you’re a great fit for the job.
To create or refine your resume, start by visiting the company’s website. Find out which specific position you’re applying for, what its responsibilities are, and what skills and background you need to get the job.
Then, read through your resume to see how well it lines up with those requirements.
Does your experience align with their expectations? Do you have any of the soft skills they’re looking for? If so, make sure those connections are clear in your resume by using specific keywords from the description of their desired candidate.
Then fill any gaps with details about accomplishments that aren’t necessarily related to the job but show evidence of transferable skills: areas where you’ve excelled before and could succeed at this new position as well.
Make sure every sentence on your resume matters—each one should be contributing something important about why you would be an excellent fit for this particular job.
When all else fails, try asking yourself “Why do I matter?” as you come up with each sentence on your resume (and cover letter).
Step 2: Get in the Right Mindset
The next step is to get in the right mindset to begin your job search.
You need to take a moment to think about what you want and what’s important to you. I know this all sounds super obvious, but it’s not just about getting excited about landing any job that pays $15-$26/hr.
It’s about finding a job that will help you become successful.
Ask yourself, “What type of job do I want? What type of company do I want to work for? What type of work do I want to be doing?”
It’s also important for you to think about what kind of schedule would make you happy.
Would you rather commute into the city every day, or would you prefer to work on-site?
Is it more important for you to have the opportunity to travel and see new places, or are you looking for the stability of a more routine schedule?
