Are you feeling disorganized and overwhelmed at the thought of starting your job search?
You’re ready to start your job search. You’re deciding which job to target and updating your resume and LinkedIn. But there’s one very important thing you may be missing before you embark on this challenging, exciting, and often overwhelming journey.
You need to get organized. A dream without a plan is just a wish. By approaching your job search with a plan and systems to stay organized, you can reduce the overwhelm that you have likely felt when job searching previously.
Organize your job search, reduce overwhelm, and get hired--quicker!
It's possible with my 8 easy, low- or no-cost organization techniques!
Smart jobseekers know this about the post-pandemic job search...
Here’s something you may not have considered: One of the most exhausting parts about a job search is not the actual interviewing. It’s all the ADMIN WORK. Job searching requires so much paperwork, communication, deadline management, writing, and other tasks that save a lot of time and coordination. You are basically your own administrative assistant in this part-to-full-time gig of job hunting. There are SO many details to keep track of, so you need to be able to access the information you need at a moment’s notice…and all of this has gotten even more complicated with the post-pandemic job market.
Organizing systems is a step most jobseekers skip–and then regret later on when they’re feeling overwhelmed by all the admin work involved in job searching.
In your previous job searches, you have probably asked…:
- Did I already apply for this job?
- Have I applied at this company before?
- Did I miss a perfect job posting?
- Is there an easier way to target my resume to each position?
- Did that job ever get back to me with a status update?
- How can I get a handle on my inbox during the search?
- How can I remember what to say in an interview?
- Is there a shortcut for writing messages/emails that say essentially the same thing?
- How can I save time and make this whole process less overwhelming?
There’s a better way to job search, and it all starts with putting systems in place to keep you organized–before you even start searching! Fortunately, this is possible with low- or no-cost options and very little time to set up. Keep reading to find out how I used these exact techniques and tools in my own successful post-pandemic job search!
I'm Alison King, and I want to help you get organized to get hired.
I know what it's like to be in your position--overwhelmed and stressed out about the job search ahead. This is especially true in a post-pandemic world where your priorities may have shifted and you may be looking to find a job with more flexibility or in an entirely different industry or position.
I know because that was me in April 2021 when I launched my own post-pandemic, career-switch job search. It took 4 months to obtain my target position, and it wouldn't have been possible without the systems I put in place before starting my search.
But why should you trust me to help you get organized for your job search?
Here's the thing: I am not a traditionally “organized person.” I've never owned a bullet journal (and the thought of those highly organized journals makes me sweat). I don’t use color-coded Excel sheets. Heck, I don’t even use Excel for my own non-work purposes.
So why am I teaching a course about organization tips for your job search? Well, in some ways, I think that makes me the perfect person to do it–when you’re not an “organized” person, it’s intimidating to see the color-coded sheets and bullet journaled perfection from others. In my most recent job search, I came up with some organization techniques out of necessity, and they worked quite well. I hope this course will provide you with some ideas that you can then customize to work for YOU.
Along with being a successful career-switcher, I am a career professional specializing in writing resumes and other career marketing documents for ambitious professionals looking to write a new chapter in their career (or a whole new book)! I know--from both firsthand experience and from working with my clients--what it takes to get hired in this post-pandemic job market. I'm eager to share my knowledge and techniques with you so that you can find a new job you'll love!
