SOKY JobSeeker Tools for Success: No. 1 Be On 24/7

You are seeking employment. The old job search … it’s frustrating; I know – I’ve been here a time or two myself. Maybe you have a job already but are looking for a better opportunity, a career with growth potential. Soon many of you will be graduating and looking for your first real job (exciting!). Some of you have lost your job and are picking up the pieces to seek a better future.

No matter what your situation may be, remember this: Be on your A game at all times. You never know who you may meet, who may be watching you, or who might be able to help. Getting a great job requires expert attention to detail. No matter your experience, skill level, or education how you are perceived is critical to landing your dream job.

Be mindful of your appearance, attitude, and social media profiles. No matter where you go, who you interact with and what you’re doing online, make sure you are prepared to be seen and heard. It’s a small world out there, and word of mouth will make or break your reputation. Always make sure you project professionalism at work as well as when you are “off the clock.”
