4722862469_244024488c_bTrying to shake things up with your job search? Need a few more tricks up your sleeve to not only increase your chances of landing an offer, but also reduce the monotony you’re feeling from the continued search? Here are some of last year’s hot topics in the job search category. Pick one, two, or even three, if you’re bold, and give them a try. What’s the worst thing that can happen? You may make more contacts and pull yourself out of a rut!

1. Job Search Club: Take a night off from your book club and join a Job Search Club. This is a more intimate way to make contacts, get feedback, and meet with like-minded individuals in the same boat as you.

2. Get a Mentor: We all can use a little help at times and using mentors to help you in your search is a great way to do it. Mentorship works for both parties, that’s the beauty of it.

3. Increase Productivity with a New App: No doubt, sitting down at the computer to search for jobs just begs procrastination. Why not find the perfect app that will help you focus on finding that perfect job?

4. Network Differently: Switch up your regular networking routine and try some of these strategies. You might find you’ve been missing a big piece of the puzzle!

5. Get Crafty While You Search: Do an experiment of sorts. See if you can apply these crafty principles   while you are searching for your new job. Does it work for you is it possible you can move up the ladder at your current job?

6. Discover Your Strengths: If you’re tired of answering that question, “Tell me about your strengths in the workplace,” one of these tests will give you the confidence to answer it!
