How To Get A Job Fast - 3 Easily Overlooked Sources Of Fast Jobs
By: Tony Mase
If you're looking to get a job fast, whether it's because you have to or want to, in today's "high-tech" society with its "high-tech" mentality, it's real easy to overlook some tried-and-true "low-tech" sources of fast jobs...
Here are three of the best:
Fast Job Source #1 - People You Know
I've heard that as many as 80% of all jobs are obtained through other people, not advertising. Based on the people I know who have jobs, I'd have to say that number is fairly accurate, if not a tad on the low side. That being the case, if you're looking to get a job fast, your single, number one best job source is the people you know.
Therefore, the most efficient and effective thing you can do to get a job fast is to call everyone you know and I do mean *everyone* - friends, relatives, neighbors, acquaintances, people you know from clubs and organizations, former co-workers, and yes, even former employers (assuming you left them on good terms) - to let them know you're seeking employment, ask them if they know of anyone hiring, and, if they don't, if they'd be willing to ask around for you (don't forget to follow-up with them if they say yes).
Fast Job Source #2 - Newspapers
Believe it or not, there are many small business owners, the largest creators of jobs there are, who can barely turn on a computer, let alone post a job listing online. Thus, they still rely on good old-fashioned newspapers to advertise job openings.
The employment or "help wanted" section of the good old Sunday newspaper is still one of the best sources of job openings there is, but don't ignore the daily, weekly, monthly, and even the "shopper" type papers as they're often equally as good, sometimes even better, sources.
Fast Job Source #3 - Signs
Just the other day, I was talking with a gal who told me, "I can't find a job anywhere, no one's hiring." "Do you ever go to __________?" I asked her. "Yea, I go there every morning," she said. "What about __________?" I asked. "I'm in there once or twice a week," she replied.
"Well," I told her, "both of them have great big signs on their doors that read *Now Hiring*."
Her somewhat sheepish reply?
"Oh, I didn't see them."
Why didn't she see them, you ask?
She wasn't looking for them.:-)
Don't let that be you!
Many small businesses, again the largest creators of jobs there are, never go beyond word-of-mouth, newspaper ads, and/or "help wanted" signs to get all the help they need. Therefore, you'd be foolish to overlook these sources of fast jobs.
