Many people will be dropping out of the marketplace because they think summer is not a good time to look for a job. However, companies are hiring during the summer or selecting those they will hire in the Fall. Who gets hired in the Fall? Those who searched in the summer, of course! So, while your competition is at the beach, increase the momentum in your own job search.
Plan your summer campaign now:
- Assess where you are in your job search. What’s working…what do you need to do to keep 6 – 10 things in the works?
- Use your marketing plan to determine how you will meet with people in a position to hire you in each of your target companies. Remember; hiring managers are not on vacation ALL summer. They have to work just like everyone else.
- Network with everyone you can to learn more about your target market.
- Set goals for the number of people you will meet with each week. Being known in your target market is the best way to tap into the “hidden” job market.
