Job search strategy is the art and science of planning and purposefully arranging a job seeker’s resources for their most efficient and effective use toward getting the best job possible at a given time.
A currently unemployed, active job seeker can easily conduct hundreds of job search activities – such as sourcing for job leads, modifying resumes, researching companies, attending events, and setting up coffee meetings – in one single week.
If these activities are all parts of a well thought out strategy and plan, they will all work together consistently and, therefore, accelerate job search success. Job seekers could be wasting valuable time and energy if they don’t have a job search strategy in place to ensure efficiency and effectiveness of all activities.
