4 Innovative Approaches to Landing Your Ideal Job

Landing a job today has become a lot more competitive. While targeted networking is still important, how you develop and manage these networks has significantly advanced. Here are 4 approaches to consider:

  1. Job Search Networks | Job search networks online now offers robust search options such as keywords, geography and skill categories
  2. Workstyle Options | Choose between contract, permanent and work-at-home opportunities
    • Temporary and contract employment offers more flexibility to align your lifestyle objectives with your career goals. This includes options for where you work, how you work and the duration of your job assignments.
    • Direct-hire employment offers more predictability in your work routine, as well as other benefits.
    • There are job opportunities that allow you to work at home as well, if you prefer or require.
  3. Freelance Communities | A freelance community allows you to publish and maintain an online profile that features your skills sets, work experience and related information so prospective employers can find you. A keyword search for freelance websites will reveal different types of communities for different types of gig opportunities.
  4. Niche Job Networks | Assisting military veterans in securing civilian jobs is a high priority. There are networks tailored specifically for veterans that offer access to specialized resources, such as Hiring our Heroes and the Military Spouse Employment Partnership.
