Beginning a job search can be a daunting prospect. We know that no one wants to be looking for a job, but you’ve taken the first step, and started looking! Congratulations. We are here to help you throughout this process of your job search.

This part is hard, but we’re here to make it easier.

If you haven’t yet taken our quiz to find out what might be some interesting industries for you to work in, click the button below to take it and learn something new about yourself. However, there are also a variety of other personality assessments that might help you find a job that suits you. Also, we have eliminated the ones you have to pay for, because no one has the time for that.

Here are some of our favorites: 

Oprah’s Career Assessment

Glassdoor’s Personality Test

The Princeton Review Career Quiz

Now that you have your results, take a moment to learn more about each industry or job position that might be a good fit for you. Find some interesting job titles and career paths that you might want to explore. You can then either search for specific job titles, or perhaps some employers listed that may be hiring for specific positions that piqued your interest. 

Looking at different job descriptions, you will be able to pick out pieces of jobs that you think you might enjoy, and jobs that you think might not be a good fit. Take your time during this process, and make a list! Writing things down, or at least listing them down, will help you determine which jobs might be the best fit for you. 

Stay Organized.

Make sure that you have a spreadsheet of all of the applications you are interested in, whether it is on the computer, or on paper, and that you record everything that is needed, contact information for hiring managers, and any other guidelines for each application. There are tons of online organizational resources that can help you organize your job search. We like these ones: 

Trello –  – great for to-do lists, deadlines, etc. 

GetPlan – we like this one for organizing our calendar. If you’re a deadline-based person – try this! 

AnyDo – a great way to organize everything that’s going on in your life, with multiple options for notes, subtasks, etc. 

Here at JobGet, we think that the time of the resume is far in our past. However, the majority of employers still require that you submit a resume when you apply for their jobs! Need to start from scratch? Here’s a helpful template, free of charge, to help you on your way. 

Congratulations! You have learned more about yourself, you have gotten organized, and now you are ready to apply for jobs. Don’t forget, we’re here to help you – let’s connect!
