Everybody wants to hold off for the perfect job but what if you need to get hired quickly?
Here are four tips to nail down your job fast:
- Check your application materials carefully. If you're submitting an application, sharing a resume or sending a cover letter – make sure they are absolutely free of spelling errors and typos. That's the number one mistake that hiring recruiters see and a lot of them won't consider your application if they see any typos.
- Target small businesses. If a small business has a hiring notice out front, chances are they're looking to hire someone quickly. If you see a small business posting a position on Snagajob.com, it's usually because they have a specific job that they need filled right away, and oftentimes the hiring process in a small business takes less time than a larger business because fewer people are involved.
- Keep your eyes open when you're out and about for stores that have hiring notices posted in the window. If there is a business you would love to work for, go in and ask if they have any open positions. You never know when you’ll be at the right place at the right time.
- Let your friends and family know that you're looking for a job. They are your job search network and that is the single most valuable tool you have when looking for a job. They can keep a lookout and tell you when they run across great job opportunities posted online or a local store you might not go to that has a position available.
