Sometimes, it seems like finding a job takes forever. From finding places to apply for and waiting to hear back, the process can seem never-ending. After discovering Snagajob, Christen found a job in just three days! With her advice, you can use Snagajob to land a gig just as fast.

“The first day of job searching was like wandering blind, until a manager at a restaurant told me about Snagajob."

We'll help walk you through the entire job search process, from creating a profile all the way to job interview pointers. Spend Day 1 completing your Snagajob profile. Our quick personality quiz will show you what jobs would be perfect for you. After figuring out your personality type, apply to the recommended jobs and check your email – you may get an interview!

"Day 2 was spent applying to all of the recommended jobs that Snagajob sent me. That afternoon I followed up and ended up with three interviews."

With 24 hours to spare, prepping for your interview is essential. The interview is the employer’s opportunity to see if your personality is a match for their workplace (and vice versa). Here are a few quick tips to ace your first impression:

  • Come to the interview with questions prepared when they ask, “Do you have any questions for me?” This shows that you have an interest in the position.

  • Set yourself apart by explaining what you can bring to the table. Have you had a job before? Great! Do you have examples about your conflict resolution skills? Tell the interviewer!

  • Polish your skills by doing a mock interview and practicing common interview questions.

Tomorrow, you could have a job offer!

"Day 3 was spent updating my wardrobe for interviews."

As the old saying goes, dress for the job you want. Job interviews are the perfect opportunity to display that you take this opportunity seriously. For the perfect interview outfit, check out our Pinterest board for inspiration for guys and girls. After choosing your outfit, be sure to remove face piercings, cover tattoos and wear your hair neatly.

"I went to the group interview and after I left, they called and said I got the job. Booyah!”
