2) Incorporate key words from the job description into your resume!!
3) LinkedIn is your Friend! I have found LinkedIn to be one of the best resources for job searching, and here is how: Every position that you apply for you can search for their “Hiring Manager, Talent Acquisition, or Recruiter” per the company on LinkedIn, and then you can send them a message (connect with them and briefly say you applied for the job) for every single job you apply for, be it on LinkedIn, company’s website, etc. Also, Search in the status updates for openings. When you connect with people, you can see their connections, and recruiters will post in their status updates “Looking for a Bank Teller in Dallas, TX” then you just connect with them.
4) Refresh your posted resume (CareerBuilder, Monster, Dice, etc.) every week. You can do this by inserting and removing your middle initial. This brings your resume to the top of a recruiter’s search.
5) Dallas is a huge hub for recruiters. A lot of companies use recruiters to fill their advanced positions, so reach out to all recruiting companies that specialize in your industry. BravoTECH for IT, etc.
