Job Search Steps


Step 1. Self Assessment

To prepare for an effective job search, you must understand your abilities, talents, interests, values, needs, and goals. Although this sounds basic, it is an important but often forgotten step. You must know yourself to the extent that you can look a prospective employer in the eye and tell him/her what professional and personal skills and characteristics you have that qualify you for the position for which you are applying. Many students underestimate themselves.

Post-Interview Thank You Letter


The importance of a thank you letter cannot be emphasized enough. It is a must! Although it is easy to sit down and write a short note, hardly anyone does, and the moment you do, you set yourself aside from the crowd.

Send a thank you letter within 24 hours of the job interview. When a decision is being made quickly about a position, you want to get the letter into the hands of the employer as soon as possible.
