The Three Building Blocks of All Successful Job Searches: Organization

Yesterday we talked about the importance of focus in your job search. Today, lets talk a bit about the critical role that organization plays.

Top Organization Tips for Job Searchers

Stay organized to avoid repeating your efforts to keep being effective and efficient. Recognize this reinforces a powerful personal image.

Keep track of the jobs and companies you have applied to. Create an excel spreadsheet indicating date of application, follow-up action required, type of follow-up action. It’s also a form of visual reinforcement that you are putting in the work. Some companies take time to contact candidates, so this list keeps you on track.

Maintain a contact list. Have phone numbers, email addresses, job titles and names of the people with whom you have spoken. When the company contacts you for a phone screen or an interview, you will always know where you are in their process.

Create notes for every conversation you have, whether it’s with the hiring manager or human resources, so that you will be able to refer back to important conversations.
