Here are the steps Job Search plan which will help in your search for work or an alternative career. Having a plan helps you to have goals and stick with them. It also really helps you to be organized and effective in your search for work.
Here Is The Steps Job Search Plan:
1.Type of Work:
Decide what kind of work you are interested in and how far you will travel for work. Decide on the types of work that interest you most and keep your options open but be realistic.
Work out a ‘job search timeline‘ and set up an email account.
There is a saying; “by failing to plan, you plan to fail”.This can also be true for your job search process. Be organised in going about your challenge in finding work and you will find it a lot easier to succeed.
Get organised. Gather your supporting documents together electronically on a USB stick and in hard copy format. Call it ‘Employment file’.
- Written references.
- School certificates (if you are a young person).
- Qualifications, skill certificates and awards.
Prepare or update your resume.
The importance of a good resume cannot be underestimated. Your skills need to be highlighted and tailored to each job you apply for so the employer really wants to see you in person.
A resume is a very important tool in your job search. It is your advertising brochure and you need to be well prepared.
The way resumes are put together has changed, so don’t use that old one you had five years ago. Resumes need to be continually updated and written to suit particular jobs and employers.
The most effective way to prepare your resume is to store the Word version electronically (USB, PC or disk) so it can be easily modified or updated.
5.Shortlist of Jobs:
Prepare and maintain a ‘job search contact List’ to place in your ‘Employment file’.
Keep a record of all of your contacts and job search details. It helps to organise these into a job search contact list.
Record all telephone contacts with dates, numbers, times and outcomes so you can track your efforts and organise your follow-up.
Register and search for vacancies advertised online.

Keep a watch on advertised positions in newspapers, journals, and noticeboards.
Check for job vacancies several times a week. Work out specific days that you can set aside to do this and stick to them. See your job search as a job itself.
Get out there, approach potential employers and use your networks – people are your greatest resource.
Ask your friends and family for possible job leads and be sure to follow up. This is one of the most effective methods of finding work and involves ‘selling your skills‘ through your social and business contacts.
Seek opportunities for work experience. Work experience can be a very effective job search tool.
It is an opportunity to:
- learn and develop new skills.
- get to know a potential employer and become known by them.
- an opportunity to experience a job and see if it suits you.
- obtain some current references.
- help you to get back into the swing of working if you’ve been out of work for a while.
Plenty of job seekers doing work experience have ended up being offered a job by the employer. They value your time and attention in their business.
Work experience employers can also make good referees. Your recent experience there is also a valuable addition to your resume.
