A job search is like running a small business where the product you're selling is you. Discover a market that needs you, and start meeting people in that market to let them know that you're available. The more people you meet, from more companies, the better your chances of finding a way in.

There is a lot of strategy in an effective job search. In a nutshell, we recommend more time with people and less on the internet. Getting organized is half the battle. One approach is to register in D2L for Career Steps, pick three goals, set dates by which you’d like to achieve those goals, and go. Once those goals are met, pick a few more.
