If you need a second set of eyes, ask friends and family members to proofread your cover letter. Have a list of references ready to provide your potential employers. Create or update your profile on networking websites and maintain a log to keep track of jobs that you have applied for and interviews that you have provided. Check your emails every day. Being organised in your job search can make the process faster and easier.

Get your CV Proofread.

Have your resume and cover letter proofread by friends, family, co-workers, professional recruitment agencies for errors and for advice. You can employ a recruitment agency to help you write your resume and enhance your cover letter.

Use all your Resources.

Do not limit yourself to online searches but take advantage of all job search options. Reach out to companies via their websites, schedule meetings with hiring managers, attend career fairs, search for vacancies on social media and purchase career counselling services. You can use search engines to find vacancies on job portals and company websites. Email your contacts in the industry to find out if they know of any vacancies. Sign up for weekly job alerts wherever you can.

Resume Customization.

Change your resume a little before applying to every job. Study the job description and then add them to your skills, adapt your experiences to correlate with the position and write achievements that may impress the concerned potential employer. Your resume should be such that it can be read quickly and it should highlight the skills you have required for the position. You can have multiple templates of your resume and customize them accordingly. Keep the education and contact information the same for every interview but personalize job duties according to the job you apply for.

Research the Companies.

Research the companies before you attend interviews. This can provide you with information about their company culture, perks and salary range, products and services they offer and their work environment. Your research may bring you insight if their work environment is suitable for you or not. You can also use some of the information you learn through your research in your cover letter or during the interview.
