The first step in finding a job is knowing what job you want.
Once you know the type of work you are looking for, it is time to start creating your job search documents. As highlighted in Step 2, be sure to also tailor your resume and cover letter in order to demonstrate your experiences and skills that are most relevant to each employer and position you are applying for.
Δ STEP 2: Market Yourself
The next step in finding employment is preparing a resume (or curriculum vitae) and cover letter that will introduce and market your skills to prospective employers.
Δ STEP 3: Look for Jobs
When you have completed your job search documents, you can start to look for opportunities.
Now that you know where to find and how to apply for positions, you need to be ready to talk to potential employers about yourself in an interview.
