Ten Things You Need to Do In Your Job Search

Ten Things You Need to Do In Your Job SearchDo you find yourself looking for a new career opportunity? Has it been a while? Here are ten things you should do in your job search.

1. Set aside time every day to perform your job searching activities.

An active job search requires dedication. How much time will it take? That depends on your situation and your motivation.

Is Java the top code to know? C, C++, C# – ho hum. Python and Ruby are hot. What about R? Assembly, Scala or Shell? Picking a particular new “emerging” technology stack like Ruby on Rails, any of the MVC Javascript frameworks, Scala, or Solr, etc. means working with some cutting edge new coding.

 

But requiring the latest, emerging new code in terms of a hiring requirement definitely means that the talent pool available is going to be extremely small.
