Target Your Job Search

In order to conduct a successful and targeted job search, you need to have a clear focus. This includes knowing yourself — your unique skills, interests, abilities and strengths. This also includes knowing what type position you are seeking.  Consider:

    • What function/type of work you find interesting
    • What setting/environment you want to work in
    • What client/ type of people you would like to work with.

If you have not taken the time to identify your focus, consider going back to the Exploring Majors and Careers pages and spending time in the Self Assessment section as well as in steps 1 and 2 of our Job Search Toolkit  to get clarity before continuing in your job search. 

Assuming you have taken inventory, know yourself well and have a clear focus, then it’s time to start working on building your strategy.
