How to get a job
How I did it: After my internship ended in September, and my graduation in October, I started really looking for a job, but I live in a small town and good jobs, and even not so good jobs are hard to come by. At first I just applied at fast food places, hoping I could get something there and then look for something better, I also applied at retail with the same thoughts, although I like retail much better than food service. But, no where seemed to be hiring.
Then, my step dad, who works as a regonal sales manager, told me they were hiring at one of their sister companies. They were looking for a sales/office assistant, so I applied, and got an interview. Yesterday, they called me and said they offered the job to someone else. I was a little disappointed, but I was alright with it. But, then they called me bright and early this morning and told be the person they were originally going to hire took a job elsewhere, and offered me the position. They asked if I wanted to think it over...nope. I was desperate for a job and a decent job landed in my lap after months of searching. Yay!
I start as soon as I go through the physical and drug test!
Lessons & tips: Just stay optimistic. I used to say "no where is hiring" or, "no one will hire me" but, that's not true. Somewhere, somebody is hiring, you just have to find them. And someone WILL hire you, it just might take some time.
Look everywhere! and try to get to know people in the business. I was lucky, because my step dad happened to work at this company's sister company, and that's how I find out about the job. But, I also have some great business contacts from my internship.
Ask around and see if people are hiring. ask friends, family, neighbors, whatever.
Resources: my stepdad helped me a lot. But, in searching for other jobs, my computer was most helpful, because I don't have a car and it's hard to get anywhere. My job placement coordinator at school helped too. Also, make sure your resume is up to date and accurate.
