Looking for a job can be a full-time job in itself. There is a lot to do and a lot to keep track of. But there are a few essentials to keep in mind if you’re an imaging tech, tasks that should take priority because they are so important to conducting a successful job search. Here are four of them.
Keep your credentials updated.
Make sure your resume and cover letter are up to date. Make sure that the information is current. That way, when you need to put together a resume and cover letter for an opening, you won’t have to start from scratch, although you will, naturally, have to tailor your application materials to fit the particular job and employer you are applying to.
Along with this, make sure you have a good voice mail system set up. You may also want to get a separate email address just for your job search correspondence.
In 2015, this should not be news to anybody, but it bears repeating because it is so important. This is the most effective way to find a job – and to find out about jobs, since many are not even advertised. Talk to your contacts in the healthcare industry. Set up informational interviews to cultivate new contacts. Have business cards ready to hand out.
Use the job search websites.
On these sites, you can search through many different job boards, company websites, industry associations, and other places, all quickly and easily.
Use social media.
You can also find out about jobs through social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. And you can use these sites to advertise yourself as well. If you have a presence on LinkedIn, use it to highlight your skills and experience, which may generate some interest from companies using LinkedIn as part of their recruiting process.
