Having a job is both a necessity and a privilege these days. Some of us work for someone else, like in an office. Some of us work from home. Having a job is not something to take for granted. There are many people who want to find a job and are having a hard time. Job boards used to be the established way of looking for work. Job boards and looking in the paper are slowly becoming obsolete and a thing of the past. Most employers do not use these methods anymore. We need to find an alternate approach, a more out-of-the-box way of thinking.
1) A good place to start is with social media. You will be surprised at what people post online. Your dream job may be right around the corner. You will never know unless you use these sources. Take some time out from posting selfies on Facebook and Twitter and look for some job recruiters. They are there. You just have to look.
2) Talk to a company directly. Give them a call. Send them an email. Send them a text. The last one is for those who know someone specifically in the company. Ask them if they are hiring. Ask them when they will be conducting their hiring process. Sometimes companies conduct private interviews without the public's knowledge. Not all jobs are being advertised anymore. Pull some strings with someone you know in the field.
3) Go back to school. Use some of your contacts there. You have nothing to lose. You may find there is a professor who is looking for an assistant. You may fit the bill. Ask him/her. The worst thing they can say is "no". Ask them to keep your "information" on file for later use. You never know when lighting will strike.
