New Year Job Search Resolutions

Guest Author - Gwendolyn Thompson

The holidays will soon come to an end and a new year will begin with a new commitment to job searching. Now is a good time to begin thinking and evaluating what you will need to do to be able to achieve the resolutions that you will commit to in 2011.

Starting with an evaluation of possible career goals will help integrate resolutions into your job searches. Be open to the idea that during times of unemployment you can make a career change or learn skills that you do not have but that you feel you need as well as exploring other aspects of your life.

The following is a list of questions to ask yourself before you list your job search resolutions …

*Do I need to update my resume to show achievements?
*Do I need to update my skills for future job openings?
*Do I have time in between jobs to volunteer?
*Do I need to be better prepared for job interviews?
*Am I networking and connecting efficiently?
*Have I research other fields of interest for a career change?
*Do I need to change my tactics for future job searching?

If you were a long time employee at your previous job then chances are you need to update some of your skills for current positions. Volunteering can refresh skills and teach new skills as well as give opportunity. This also could be a good time to consider a change in careers.

Computers are the future of the job market so if your computer skills are limited to one or two programs than an update is a must. Set your resolutions to commit to increasing your knowledge for today’s job market. Consider furthering your education to meet future job demands.

Carefully evaluate the previous year job searches and their outcome. Were the tactics that you used effective in getting interviews? If not then consider changing the way you were doing your job searches. Fresh updated information on a resume is always a plus. Be on time and prepared for interviews.

Take the time to look at your life and what has changed in the past few years. Are you searching for a job that you want to do or are you searching for a job that you have previously done? Is the previous work that you did still in demand today? Set your resolutions so that you can achieve what you desire.

Research and find out what type of jobs are being posted consistently for the past three months. Make a note of the companies that are posting these positions. These are the types of jobs that are available for the upcoming year. A growth in jobs for the same company for three months in a row is prosperous.

Put your job search for 2010 to rest and welcome your new job searches for 2011. Get ready and eager to begin the new year with a fresh start. Plan, prepare and present yourself for prosperous job searches in 2011 and may everyone fulfill their new year job search resolutions.
