Looking for a job?

job search tip yellowGet your family and friends involved!

Make your job search a team effort by telling your family and friends that you are searching for a job.

It is important to have a strong support system. They can be there to cheer you on in victory, or pick you up if you’re feeling down. Furthermore, your support team can keep an eye out for any job opportunities they come across.

Keep in mind, every person you know is a potential contact. Following are some ideas of who you can involve in your job search:

  • Family members
  • Friends
  • People in your address books (hard copy, e-mail, and social media)
  • Your Christmas card list (or comparable)
  • Co-workers from past jobs
  • People you know at the gym, physical trainer, or sports teams
  • Neighbors
  • People who come to do work at your home
  • Clerks you know at stores
  • Barber, hairdresser, manicurist, etc.
  • Waiters, waitresses, restaurant managers
  • Your doctors and their staff
  • Religious associations
  • Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, or any other group you belong to

Should you always use a cover letter with your resume?

A survey conducted by CareerBuilder.com revealed that 20% of hiring managers automatically dismiss any resume submitted without a cover letter. Therefore, it is always a good idea to include a cover letter with your resume if you want to ensure your resume will be looked at.

Although many job experts admit to going straight to an applicant’s resume without looking at their cover letter, it looks more professional when the job seeker takes the extra step to include one.

With a cover letter, the applicant has an additional opportunity to concisely explain their objective, answer any questions that may have been in the job posting to which they are applying, and address anything that wasn’t included in their resume.

Consider letting MCK Resume Services help you come up with a killer combination resume and cover letter that will get you noticed.
