How To Get a Job

This is one of the worst economic crises our country has ever been through, and the unemployment rate is only going up.  Millions of people are being laid off and there just aren't enough people hiring.  For those unfortunate people looking for a job, and having trouble finding one, there is hope.  With the right state of mind and hard work, you can find a job in the worst of times.

Step 1

Classifieds.  A great place to look for people who are hiring is the classifieds section of your local newspaper.  Keep up with any new positions available and call on them immediately.  The last thing you want to do is get beat out by someone else looking for the same job.

Step 2

Craigslist.  Craiglist is a free Internet classifieds site with just about everything on it.  One of the things it is most used for is to find jobs.  Employers are constantly putting ads on Craigslist looking for people to hire.  You can also post an ad about yourself, and see if an employer will contact you.

Step 3

Go back to school.  This may not be what you want to do, but it is something that all employers are looking for, higher education.  You can never have too many credentials, and the more you have the better you look compared to the next person.  Getting another degree is a great way to separate yourself from the pack and find a job easier.

Step 4

Ask a friend.  Feel free to ask some of your friends who are currently employed if their boss is hiring.  This is a great way to have a connection, and have a good reference.  Many employers will listen to their employees when they recommend someone for a job since they already know the person.

Step 5

Be reasonable.  If you are unemployed and having a hard time finding a job, you are in no place to be picky.  You have to be willing to work somewhere you may not like and work for less.  This is no time to hold out till you find the perfect job.

Being unemployed is a tough thing, but there are ways out of it.  You have to be positive and work hard to find a job.  Remember you aren't the only one out there looking for a job, so set yourself above the rest.
