Default Ten Time Saving Tips to Speed Up Your Job Search

(Gathered from my own experience over the last few years and lots of stuff from different websites!)

Be Prepared.
Sign-up for a professional sounding/looking email address. Put your cell phone number on your resume so you can follow up in a timely manner.

Be More Than Prepared.
Always have an up-to-date resume ready to send - even if you are not currently looking for work. You never know when an opportunity that is too good to pass up might come along. Have a supply of good quality resume paper and envelopes on hand.

Create Your Own Templates.
Have email and paper versions of your resume and cover letter ready to edit. That way you can change the content to match the requirements of the job you're applying for, but, the contact information and your opening and closing paragraphs won't need to be changed.

Use Job Search Engines.
Search the job search engines. Use the sites that search the major job banks, employer sites and electronic news groups for you.

Jobs by Email.
Let the jobs come to you. Use job search agents to sign up and receive job listings by email. All the major job sites have search agents and some web sites specialize in sending announcements.

Use Your Network.
Be cognizant of the fact that many, if not most, job openings aren't advertised. Tell everyone you know that you are looking for work. Ask if they can help.
