Getting What You Want Out Of Life

By Franklin Skribbit

Looking for a new career or even a new job can be one of the most stressful events in life. With all of the competition from other qualified individuals and the pressure to succeed, not to mention the ever increasing weight of financial responsibilities, looking for a job can be an extremely difficult task for many of today’s unemployed populace.

One of the main reasons why it is difficult to be happy while in school is because there are a lot of stresses. Students experience a lot of stress because they must focus so much of their energy on doing well in their classes.

All hiring managers were shown to spend an average of twenty seconds looking over each resume before deciding to move that resume to a pile to be reviewed later or deciding to throw the resume in the trash.

But beyond education, a person can still enact a few tips and tricks when it comes to finding a job that will help them to be more effective at both finding and landing the career or position they desire. The first step that one can take to increase their likelihood of success while looking for a new job is to narrow their search.

Having an organized color scheme to the resume will also allow a job seeker to perhaps color coordinate differing resumes that will be sent to differing companies.

Eventually these types of bad habits will catch up with you and you will have to deal with the consequences of your choices. The way to changing your habits is to really focus on what you want out of your life.

It may not seem like a big deal to spend an evening watching television, but watching television one night could very likely turn into watching television every night. Then you realize that you’ve wasted a whole week of nights just watching television.

Another major pit fall that many resume builders fall into is the trap of over stating work experience. It is important to remember that one should strive to keep their resume to one page and one page only so that the hiring manager can easily see why the person is qualified for the job without having to hunt for that information.

Beyond applying to specific jobs, a person can help themselves to land their dream job if they will strive to do some research into what company or industry they would like to be involved with and then going off to make friends and contacts in those companies or industries.

Sit down and write down a few goals. Not tons, just a few. Figure out why these are your goals. This is where figuring out what you want from your life comes in.

Old and antiquated online job postings work great for summer jobs during school or even for the first few starter jobs, but once a person is desirous to find their career job, looking online can be considered a less effective means and a substantial waste of time.

Often referred to as “America’s Finest City,” San Diego seems to have it all. Whether you are looking for a temperate climate, coastal scenery, active nightlife, sporting events, culture, a rich history, or an impressive military presence, you can find it here in our San Diego College.
