Break Out of Your Job Search Rut

Have you been sending out tons of resumes but haven't heard back from even one employer? Perhaps you should stop now and commit to making several changes in your job search strategy. Looking for a job can be frustrating. Don't get discouraged as yet though: there are ample networking strategies that you haven't tried it yet.

Muovo would like to share with you the tips below which will help you get out of that job search rut and back to work:

1. Check your documents.

Update your resume. Make sure that your resume is updated and everything is listed in chronological order as it should be. When you apply online for jobs, some companies may have computer systems that will scan and evaluate your materials. This means that you have to be very clear and specific about your goals.

2. Use social media.
Take advantage of online tools, such as LinkedIn, Twitter,  and Google+ to connect with professionals in your industry. These social media tools could serve as opportunities to demonstrate your expertise so more people will have the opportunity to get to know you, trust you and like you.

When you find people on social networks that share your professional interests, you can easily connect with them, pass along information they share to your community and highlight what you know about your field or industry. The stronger the base of your network, the better connections you will have. Connections may just bring the right opportunity for you.

3. Start your own business.
If you have been unemployed for some time, maybe you should start thinking about setting up a business. Indeed, a lot of companies are hiring temporary, or contract workers, instead of full-time employees. It would be a good idea to set yourself up to succeed in this environment.

Good luck!
