I use a three leg strategy when looking for work as I outlined in a recent post.
If it were me applying here’s what I’d do. I have done this for different positions in the past and I’m sure it will still work.
Day one and Day two. Print 20-30 copies of my resume. Send out 100-200 online applications per day via jobstreet and jobsdb. I also ask around for friends on facebook or my recruiter friends via email if they have openings.
Schedule interview appointments and walk-in’s day three onwards.
At my level, it takes me sixteen interviews to find a job at a company that I like that offers me how much I would like to earn.
Every experience between interview one and interview 16 is a mix of heartbreaking nos and learning experiences. I try to make the most of what I got.
I set myself a rule that I have no right to complain, give up or quit if I attended less than thirty interviews.
I do my best to have 2 or more interviews a day (ideally, one in the morning and one in the afternoon) for a month to get hired as soon as I can.
