If you are having trouble job searching, then you are probably one of the millions of individuals who are mostly looking for jobs on job boards?

Searching for a job can be challenging, however, you can improve your job search by following these 5 job searching tips.
- Update Your Resume & Cover Letter
If your resume or cover letter is “tasked-based” and NOT “accomplished-based” then you should update the documents in order to enhance your marketability to employers.
- Tailor Your Resume
Your resume should be tailored for each position by using keywords from the job posting to increase the chances of the document passing Applicant Tracking Systems (ATSs)
- Use Social Media Platforms
Many individuals don’t search for positions on social media platforms, but there are numerous companies that often use their social media platforms to list their current job openings.
Attending networking events will allow you the opportunity to meet individuals who may be looking to hire individuals for the specific position that you are looking to obtain.
- Update Your Social Media Profiles
As a professional, you should always make sure that all your social media profiles are professional and up to date since many employers look for candidates online to fill positions.
