When hunting for a job it may help to consider the process as being a cycle rather than a series of steps.

phases of the job hunt When looking for employment it helps to think about the process as a cycle rather than a series of steps. This will likely let you change the actions you take while undertaking the job search cycle as you have to due to going after various opportunities. Approaching your job hunt in the job hunt cycle manner can certainly make the sometimes overwhelming process of getting a new job just a bit easier for you. Basically there are five phases of the job hunt cycle. These five phases are broken down further below: Get ready: In this initial stage you need to evaluate yourself and then your ambitions. You must figure out what your competencies are and things you would like to do for income. Once you've decided on what type of job you would like to peruse then you have to determine what business employers in this particular industry are looking to find and what the current employment market for that career filed is. Obtain job leads: Phase two in the job hunt cycle is getting competent job leads to follow. This stage requires you pulling out all the stops. You need to network, look online at websites such as www.nineoclock.co.uk and additionally, you will have to search in the local newspaper. The more job leads you drum up the higher your odds of landing a new job. Make application for jobs: Phase three is the one that involves loads of time and energy on your side. Here is where you will be submitting an application for all job leads you found. This particular stage requires you to build appealing covering letters, revamp your resume, and take a little time to prepare any job applications or perhaps online forms that may need to be completed. Prepare yourself for job interviews: The fourth stage of the job search cycle is making preparations for all the interviews that you will hopefully have coming towards you. To get this done you will need to exercise things you will say and how you'll say it. Talking to yourself when in front of a mirror is actually a great exercise. Also you must plan your personal reference list along with your thank you note ahead of any and all interviews. To read more please check out this site. Follow-up and decide: When you have gone through the first four stages of the job hunt cycle you will have to finish with the fifth phase, which is following up and deciding. Never wait too long after you have been interviewed to follow up because you might be left behind. At the same time, you should not telephone every ten minutes since you may appear as a tiny bit irritating or even aggressive. Once you obtain a job offer it will then be up to you to either accept the job that a prospective employer wants to give to you, or perhaps start at the first stage of the job search cycle and carry on till you get what you are after. Sticking to the five phases of the job search cycle won't just make your job search a lot easier, it'll also keep you better prepared irrespective of what you come across.
