Essential Habits to Guide Your Work Search

You probably know about the power of good habits in your everyday life. It’s also clear that you need to forge those solid habits while looking for the role of your dreams.

There are some techniques you can always make a part of your job search that will serve you well throughout your career. Plus, these are great work habits in general, or at least have ties to what you might be doing in most roles. Here’s the expert advice we saw on what you should do when finding a new job.

Research Types of Potential Questions
Mock interviews can be an effective way to prepare for roles of many types. Go beyond questions about your business acumen into what you believe would make you a good cultural fit. Having the answers more readily at hand will make applying for work much more manageable.

Make a List of Job Skills That You Can Own
Get into the habit of looking carefully at job descriptions to find the skills that you can answer to the strongest. Once you know what those are, you can speak to them in more tangible ways in an interview, both with what you’ve done in your past and how you can solve the pain points of a particular company.

Make Networking a High Priority
It’s a fact that finding connections to help you in your job search is more effective than blind sends of resumes via email. Look on local business calendars for networking events, reach out to mentors or colleagues, or even book informational interviews with the types of companies you’d like to join.
