It is certainly understandable to be worried about rising unemployment and inflation. It seems everywhere you turn all the news talks about the falling US dollar, pending inflation, and the tough job market.
So what can you do to take full advantage of those resources you have available to you to help with your job search? Savvy job searchers know where and how to look for jobs. Job Centers can aid to your job hunting needs, provide employment and resume writing tips, and help your job search efforts if you know where to find them and how to use them. There are state wide job centers, city and regional job centers so start local and discover what available resources are just waiting for you, often times free of charge.
Even though job hunting has moved to online and internet resources, do not forget that newspapers always have great options for job searches. There are always jobs posted in the newspaper classifieds, typically local and small business employment opportunities. There are some surprisingly great jobs posted there so do not overlook this once widely used resource.
There are many places to look for job openings. The method of conducting your job search will also depend on what type of jobs you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for a job in the medical field, then you might want to go directly to hospital websites and apply. See if your local hospitals or wellness centers have any local job board postings or an open door walk-in policy with their HR department. Other employment fields such as school districts sometimes have special ways for teachers to get hired.
Visit your local job center to start your job search. Most employment centers often know who to contact or speak to at local employers so using them to network and create a contact list of your own can make the difference in your job hunt. Great jobs are not always easy to find these days. Get out there and show the employer that you are the person they want to hire.
