Taking Advantage of the Hot Job Market

The economy has been doing well recently — a big part of the reason for that is the hot job market that we’re currently enjoying. Even if you’re happy with your current position and aren’t necessarily in the market for a new opportunity, it can’t hurt to be prepared. You just never know when the perfect chance might come up, and you’ll want to be equipped to take advantage of whatever comes your way.

Update Your Resume and Cover Letter

When was the last time you took a look at your resume and cover letter? There’s a good chance these documents need updating, especially if you’ve been out of the job market for a while. Experience has increased, skills have been developed, connections have been made… it’s important that you highlight these things on your resume and cover letter. Don’t forget to tend to your LinkedIn profile, too.

Brush Up on Interview Skills

Companies want to move quickly in the hot job market. That means you’ll likely secure an interview or two if you start applying. Make sure to brush up on your interview skills so that you’re not blindsided when the real thing comes along. Practice going over your strengths, listing your major accomplishments in your field, and giving your responses to the most common interview questions. Finally, make sure to come up with some questions for the hiring manager once you’ve found a job you plan on applying for.

Try Partnering With a Recruiter

One of the absolute best ways to take advantage of the hot job market is to partner with a recruiter like High Profile Staffing. Using a recruiter’s wide network, you’ll be able to find opportunities that just aren’t available to everyone else. Plus, the recruiter can help you develop a personal profile that highlights your strengths and finds job openings that you suit perfectly. That means a quick pairing with a position that suits you well.
