It’s job board Tuesday for 12/1/2020 again (already?)… Well, with last week being a holiday week here in the USA, it feels as though we got here quickly. Guess we did, especially since I didn’t publish anything last Thursday, due to the holiday.
What’s the first step you take?
The first thing you do after identifying a job you want is to find out if you know anyone at that company. Use LinkedIn first. You don’t want to go much deeper than 2nd level connections. The farther away from you they are, the less likely they’ll be willing to help you. That’s simply because they don’t know you.
It’s nothing personal – if you would put yourself in their shoes, you’d probably do the same thing.
Oh well, here we go. Make sure your seat belts are fastened, and your tray tables are in their upright and locked positions!
SpeedUpMyJobSearch is looking good again this week – they are down about 100 postings, which means that several someones have gotten jobs since we last looked at that board!
BuiltInChicago’s job board is growing like crazy – this week its up to 1,637 openings. They are looking for people in every category you can think of, from Content to Sales. HR and Finance. Internships, Legal, Marketing, Operations.
Check them out here:
1871 in Chicago is staying pretty steady at around 110 jobs on their job board this Tuesday. Still pretty decent numbers when you understand that they all come from startups that are incubating in the building (well, at home for now).
There are a couple of positions with Optivolt Labs in Burlingame, CA – just in time for the snow to fall here!
Niche Job Board this Tuesday:
How about the Society for Conservation Biology this time? They’ve got 55 jobs on their job board this week.
Don’t forget – if you need help preparing yourself or your materials for your job search, that’s what we do. https://ecareercoaching.com.
Content is king – it’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it that counts.
