New York magazine’s human resources editors offer a wealth of advice on how to get the most out of your search.
They explain:What do you look for in a job?
How long do you want to be in the company?
What kind of work do you like?
What kind of location are you looking for?
What types of people do you see?
What is the kind of culture you are looking for, what are the key skills?
What do people say about your company?
Do they have any problems or concerns?
Are you looking to move on from your current job?
What can you say about the company you are working for?
Is there a specific skill that you are really looking for in that position?
Is your current company hiring?
If so, are you interested in moving to that company?
If you have already worked at the company, how long do they expect to stay?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then you are in the right place.
If the answers to those questions are no, then move on to another company.
