Conducting an effective job search

Most people need to conduct a job search more than once during their lives. Wouldn’t you like to know how to do it more effectively? This course takes you through the preparation, planning, implementation, and follow-up of the job search process. In ten lessons, you’ll learn how to define the type of job you’re seeking and get your documents in order, where to search for your dream job online and offline, how to apply, and what to do after that. After completing the course, you’ll have all the information you need to conduct an effective job search.

This course was written with a US audience in mind, but many people in other countries can gain value from the information. Use the tips as they apply to your situation.
