The job search
Searching for and landing a job takes work. Be patient! Remember that finding your first job (or any job after that) can take time.
The key to a successful job search is organized and focused planning, along with a lot of research and self-reflection. When considering your ideal organizations, think about how your skills meet the specific needs of each organization through these two questions:
- Why do I want employment here as opposed to another similar organization?
- Do I understand the mission, vision, and values of the organization I am applying to?
You should also consider environmental and personal factors, remembering that finding a job is about finding a mutual “fit” between you and the employer.
