What even qualifies as your dream job?
The sad reality is that businesses do not value employees the way they once did. Robots are replacing workers.
If you are like me you did not have a network of people to reach out to and find that perfect job. You are going to need to work for it.
There is so many businesses out there that needs your unique skills and abilities. When you set out to find a new job you need to be diligent. You need to do your homework.
Research different companies you want to work for. What exact location are you looking for? Are you willing to relocate? What are you qualifications.
So many companies use third party sites and businesses to find qualified candidates. Businesses pay a lot of money to post jobs and find candidates. Often they will post job straight to these sites rather than posting internally or on their own website.
Use the web for everything it has to offer. There are so many different job websites to choose from and explore and they will have different offerings. Some are better than others. Some specialize in different industries. If anything, exploring these sites will help you narrow down what you are looking for.

If the job of your dreams is not listed on one of these sites go straight to the source, the company. Go to their website or their office and chat with their HR department. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Do not demand a job, but let them know you are looking today and you are going to keep checking in with them for when a position does become available.
It has never been easier to look for work. But just because you have found a job search website doesn’t mean you are going to get hired. You have to put your best foot forward.
- Make sure that resume is clean, modern and easy to read.
- Make sure your resume has the latest information on it.
- Make sure you are applying for positions you are qualified for.
- Go that extra mile. If you really want a certain position, research the company. Contact the HR department and go meet someone in person.
- If you get an interview, send them a thank you note. And then follow up with them.
- When you go for an interview bring with you the research you have done and show them where their pain points are where you think they can improve.
Finding a job that you love, enjoy and are passionate is difficult. I know. I have filled out many applications and done many interviews. But the more work you put in the more you will find out about yourself.
You may not find the perfect job on the first go around. You may need to try several different jobs before you find one that works best for you. Do not be afraid to change jobs till you find the one that fits.
Companies are no longer loyal to their employees. You have so much value to give, get compensated for the work that you put out.
Once you have found that perfect job strategically ask for a raise using proven methods.
You will find a job that works for you and your lifestyle.
And when you find the job that works for you, try and also find a side hustle so you can earn passive income. It all adds up.
