School Placement Program
When you are laid off or fired, you may begin to panic. There may be no worse feeling than not knowing where your next paycheck is going to come from. Sometimes we lose our jobs through no fault of our own, and other times we may have an idea of what we had done wrong. Either way, you have to get right on your search for something new. One thing that I was taught in college was that your search for jobs should be taken very seriously, almost as if it were a job. When I was out of college there weren’t really many places online in which to do a search, but there were a few.
My search for jobs was done through the classifieds and through the school placement program. This was never easy, and being right out of college never makes it easy to find something good. What is important when you are in this type of position is to treat your search as if you were going to the office. Spend your entire day doing things related to finding a job, and you will have many great possibilities soon enough. You should always start your search for jobs early in the morning and spend your entire day on the hunt.
This should include sharpening your resume, studying the current trends in your particular field, and scoping out job leads. You should find great sites online that have job offerings in your area, and you should spend a lot of time on there looking for leads. Of course, the most important things are going on interviews and sending out resumes. Spend a good amount of time doing these things, and you will find what you are looking for. A search for jobs is never easy, and some have an easier time than others. When you don’t have a lot of experience yet, don’t be discouraged if you have to go on many interviews before you get an offer. This is just the way it is, and it does not mean you are not a good candidate. If, however, your search for jobs stretches out into months, and you have been doing all you can, you may have to think about a few things. Rethink your resume and your approach, and seek help from someone to find out if you are doing something wrong. There may be just a few small things that you are missing, and that can turn everything around.
