First, take a look at how you spend your day. How much time are you spending surfing the Internet and watching TV? Adjust your schedule so that you are doing job search related activities. Schedule time to do things like update your online career profile, resume and cover-letters.
Next, plan to speak with others at the companies that you plan to work or check sites that provide reviews. You don't want to make the same mistake by connecting with a company that doesn't pay workers well or offer quality benefits.
Third, search social media sites like Linked In, Twitter and Facebook to see if there are postings about companies and jobs you may want to perform.
Fourth, consider seeking supplemental income just in case you feel the need to want to leave your current job sooner rather than later. You can view pages on this blog for additional information or conduct a search on this site.
Lastly, don't assume that you will find a job quickly. Most often it takes six months or more to become employed again.
Do remember to budget money accordingly just in case an employer is planning a layoff or termination.
Also, discuss with your social circle on what your needs might be for future employment so that they will be on the look out for you.
