Day-by-Day Job Search

CareerBuilder

Because searching for a job is a job in itself, you should be busy performing job search tasks all week long. Here is a handy weekly planning guide to a successful job search.


Sunday

Traditionally, this is a day of rest, but not for the ambitious job seeker. The Sunday editions of many newspapers contain the thickest "want ad" section. Let the others rest, if you want to be the early bird who catches the employment worm, then you should spend this day poring over the employment section of your area newspaper. Pay attention to specific skills and requirements. Be prepared to customize your résumé and cover letter to demonstrate your expertise in the desired areas.
