#3 Maximize your search and contact leads directly.
Don’t just use one website to search for jobs. Job boards I’ve use in the past to obtain employment are: indeed.com, monster.com, simplyhired.com. Also, employers have their own career portals. So, if you are interested in working for a particular company visit their company’s website and click on careers. It will show you current opportunities to work for them in your current location.
I used indeed.com to apply to my current employer. I received a call within a week to set up an interview.

By reading the current job description you know what the employer is looking for. This will allow you to tailor your resume. Recruiters look at hundreds of resumes a day. Make your resume stands out as the ultimate candidate. Now don’t use lies or fabricate employers.
Recruiters will ask you specific questions about the employers you list. This information will also be validated before you are offered a job. List employers that give you relevant experience for the job you’re applying for. For example, my current position is human resources. They were looking for someone with customer service experience and leadership skills. When I applied I listed job where I utilized my customer service and showed leadership.

Temporary positions may not offer benefits but they offer interim pay and can turn into a full time opportunity.
