Notice how job scams always say something like “Make $3000 a week in your sleep”?  Scams do this on purpose to lure people only focused on money. These people don’t ask questions like what do I have to do in this position? If its so easy, then why isn’t everyone making 3000 a week? Don’t let money trap you in how you see things.

Follow-Up
Don’t be afraid to follow-up. People have been hired months after interviews simply by following up. Sometimes you don’t need to interview again since they have already done so. Maintain a friendly relationship with potential employers is a great way to leave the door open for future job opportunities.

Punctuality

Be on time to the interview! Leave yourself time to gather yourself before you enter when you get there. You shouldn’t be pulling up to the building and immediately sprinting inside. Give yourself enough to where you can relax, gather your thoughts and do some last minute preparations before you go in.

Stay organized

Keep track of the places you call and the people you went. Schedule your follow ups and note which places you already have applied at. This keeps you busy, organized and efficient, remember looking for a job is a job in itself.

Update your resumes/cover letters

Not getting interviews or call backs? Switch up your resume format to find what works for you. If you keep doing the same things over and over you can be assured you will not find success. Spice up your cover letters and resumes to get companies to take a longer look at your profile.
