In todays economy finding a good job or just any job is hard to do. There is a website to begin your search at it’s at www.employflorida.com. This website links all Florida’s state and local workforce services and resources.
You will find online sources have the most listings of jobs than any other place. Stores, businesses, and government have most of their job opportunities on the Internet. It’s easy to find by searching on Google for the job you want.
Using online services are a big help in landing that job, but there are other things you can do to help yourself. Here is a list of five things to do to help your chances of finding that job fast.
Network around town. Whenever you are with family or friends let it be known you are looking for a job. If they don’t have any information for you now, possibly when they speak to their network of friends something could turn up. Don’t keep it a secret you need a job.
Be Proactive. Everyday you must continue to look for work. Getting on the phone, sending email, filling out applications.
Think of your job search as a job. If you had a job you would be out of the house in the morning going to work. You would take care of your appearance and dress appropriately. Devote a set amount of time online or on the road communicating and searching. Sitting at home in front of the TV will not get you a job. You have to get out here and take action.
Don’t be afraid to take a job that pays less than your last job. When you finally get a job offer it may not pay the same as your last job. You need to take it anyway because you still have bills to pay. If you lose your home or have your car repoed because you don’t have income, having some income coming in will see you through to you get the job you really want.
A temporary job is a good choice. For those who never worked a temporary job, it’s not the end of the world. It is just a stop gap job to see you through to a full time job or the temp job will get you noticed by the boss and turn into a full time job.
