Job Search Plan
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, French author
Your job search plan will help you identify your target position, skills and qualifications, and target companies. In addition, a job search plan sells you, defines the work you desire, and lets people know how they can help you.
Use a job search plan instead of a resume during your networking meetings to:
- Create a comfortable opener for the meeting
- Set a business-like tone and give direction to the meeting
- Allow you to save your resume for further discussions and for meetings with hiring managers
A job search plan can be a simple document that describes your preferred Function, Industry, Geography; your core competencies; and your list of target companies.
