If you are anything like my other clients, organizing your job search is a challenge to say the least!  In this Labor Market it is especially important to apply for as many appropriate leads and to follow up if you hope to obtain employment.

Here is a suggested job search schedule that should get you moving in the right direction - back to work!

Job Search Schedule
Sunday:  Review and apply to help wanted’s online and/or in classifieds (If your local paper comes out on a different day, start this schedule from that day and change the below days accordingly…)
Monday:  Call those ads that request a call and obtain directions/additional information for ads asking to apply in person
Tuesday: Apply in person, return calls of employers who called, attend any job development / training meetings, review job seeking skills material online/participate in groups
Wednesday:  Cold calls and practice interviewing, other job search skills training
Thursday:  Follow up calls with any outstanding employers, job service, job search from previous week
Friday:  Networking – call friends and identify employers who are hiring.  Call and follow up with Staffing agencies registered with. 

If you have a career coach or counselor, don’t forget meeting with your counselor (bring your job logs and any other pertinent information/ documentation with you!) and checking jobs through the job service and staffing agencies AT LEAST weekly.
