Finding a Job

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. List and describe venues for finding job opportunities.
  2. Explain the value of networking.
  3. Trace the steps in pursuing a job opportunity, specifically your cover letter, résumé, and interview.
  4. Identify the critical kinds of information that should be provided in a job offer.

 A job search is a part of everyone’s life, sooner or later. It may be repeated numerous times throughout your career. You may initiate a job search in hopes of improving your position and career or changing careers, or you may be forced into the job market after losing your job. Whatever the circumstances, when you look for a job you are seeking a buyer for your labor. The process of having to “sell” yourself (your time, energy, knowledge, and skills) is always revealing and valuable.
