I recently came across an article titled 15 Common IT Job Search Mistakes that had very insightful recommendations on how IT professionals can conduct a more productive job search.
But as I read through these recommendations, I felt several of them were relevant beyond the IT industry.
Take the first three recommendations, for example:
- Not planning and preparing a job search strategy.
- Not maintaining and growing your network.
- Casting too wide a net.
All three of these mistakes are commonly made in job searches connected to most industries, be it marketing, accounting, healthcare or education.
So I recommend you read the article and ask yourself, “Am I making any of these mistakes?”
And if you’re in IT, are there any of these common mistakes that you’ve seen in your experience?
