Use These Tips to Land a Great Job in 2012!

Hiring is turning around, so if you’ve been thinking about a new job now is the time to get serious. Here’s how you can stand out from the crowd with these tips from the CAS Career Center.   

  1. Make sure your resume is current. Proofread and have two or three powerful summary statements at the top of the first page.   
  2. Know your 60-second elevator pitch. Rehearse it so it becomes second nature.   
  3. Reconnect with your support network. Meet with them and new contacts on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.   
  4. Focus your search. Use Web sites that cater to the jobs you’re looking for and upload your resume to them. Employers and recruiters are increasingly searching resume banks to find talent.

Now that you have some tips, log on to the CAS Career Center to find your perfect job! Remember, you can also create a career profile on the CAS Career Center so that employers can access your resume any time and find you!
