How To Search For A New Job

Updated on May 31, 2010

Tips On Search For A New Job!

Are you thinking of looking for a new job? Are you feeling unappreciated with your current employer? We all want to grow as a professional person, we all want to use our skills appropriately and be appreciated for all the work we do. I am sure you want to be valued for the work you do, plus, to make more money. Sometimes staying with a company long term doesn't necessarily mean you are making more money but you definitely get more benefits. But making money, being valued, growing and learning are the name of the game in this professional environment.

New Job, Sales Job, What Job?

So when you are at the point that you need to start search for a new job, please consider the following questions?

  • Do you need a new job that is more challenging, are you bored?
  • Do you want a position that allows for more advancement?
  • Increase your earnings? Management job too demanding?
  • What to move closer to your family?
  • Is it about making more money or are you dissatisfied with your work life?
  • Is it your manager?
  • Former colleagues that have moved on are happier?
  • Rumors of your company being sold or shut down?
  • You really don’t like your current position, what to do something else for a living?
  • Are you satisfied in your current position but just want to make more money?

Make sure you determine the root cause of why you want to search for a new job. If it’s money, then ask for a raise. Most employers will consider giving you a raise if you voice your opinion, with facts and with professionalism. As I said before, employment is crucial so before you leave your existing job for a new job, make sure you understand all the elements of why you are leaving and if you are truly unhappy.

Consider the wobbly economy as well, when doing your research. If you’re current company is in good shape, will recover from the economy, then you may want to think before you leap. Start up companies may not be in as good as shape and you don’t want to put yourself in a position of not having a job later on. Unemployment is very high right now. so finding a new job without having a current job, can be rather difficult. However, sales jobs are the most abundant right now. Here are some tips on the best jobs to search for;

Sales positions

Administrative positions

Police Officers

Government jobs

Nursing or Medical techs

Physician Assistants

Waitress or Waiter

These positions are important and abundant, so keep researching the jobs that work best for you and your family!

After you do your research, first find out if it’s worth changing to a new job. Sometimes, like me, it’s not worth leaving my job it’s about looking for other opportunities within the same company. That is part of determining the root cause of what’s wrong, is it me, it’s them, do I need a change or do I dislike what I am doing for a living? Once you find these answers then maybe it’s time to take the leap to greener pastures. Just remember to do your internal searching of what you need and then determine what is best for you and your future job.
