Are you looking for a new job in 2022? Here are some new year resolutions that you can make to help you refocus your job search.
1. Focus on Your Online Brand
Have you googled yourself lately? This is a great tactic for seeing what your online reputation looks like. You can use this information to create or improve your online brand. For example, if you google yourself and nothing comes up, you might want to make more of an effort to have an online presence in 2022. How do you do this? Here are some tips:
- Create a website with a personalized domain name.
- Create recognizable social media handles with your name
- Post more on social media sites that will benefit your job search
2. Determine your worth
What kind of salary do you expect to make? Do your research to know what you are worth to a company, to prepare for salary negotiations. This is something that most candidates struggle with. However, it is ok to ask for more money. You and your employer can agree on what salary range works. In addition to having a number in mind upfront, have a walk-away number as well. If your future employer offers you less than your worth, don't be afraid to say no.
3. Customize your resume
Another great resolution is sending out customized resumes for each job that you apply for. Create templates that can be easily changed out for different jobs. Use keywords in the career objectives that mimic the job description. These tips will help you stand out.
4. Do your research
In 2022, it is a great idea to start researching the company and future employers before applying for a job. Spend time researching companies where YOU feel like you would be a good fit. This is called targeted job search. Learn about the company and how its hiring process works, so that you can send your resume to the right person's desk.
5. Learn something new
Take time this year to learn a new skill. Learn something that you have always wanted to do or something that will help you land your dream job. From coding to technology to marketing, there are tons of online courses that can help you achieve your dream.
Make these part of your new year's resolutions, and who knows... maybe 2022 will bring a new job!
