Job Search Strategies

You do not have to depend on third parties to help you get a job. Recruiters and agencies have their place in many job searches. However, your job search may be an exception. If you are seeking a position in the same industry or in a related job category, search firms might be useful. We have found that the following circumstances rule out the use of agencies:

  • Career or industry shift
  • Job history problems
  • More than seven years tenure with a company
  • Less than three years of job experience
  • Non-traditional educational path for the job

Create a Winning Strategy by:

  1. Developing focus
  2. Defining your career goals
  3. Identifying your target organizations
  4. Deciding on which tools to apply to your situation

The consultants at Career Momentum will guide you in those four things plus more. Once you have landed, we can coach you through development of an effective on-boarding strategy as well.

Let consultants at Career Momentum teach you  the building blocks of an effective job search strategy.
