My email inbox and Facebook friend's timelines have been flooded with themes for 2017. So, when asked, I selected my theme word. I selected “multiply.”  That is my theme for 2017 and I am ready!

I want to multiply my reach, clients, opportunities. More importantly, I want to help you multiply your job leads, interviews and job offers.

News flash! There is only one you so you must work smarter, not harder. Seeking a job can be time consuming. Automation is a great way to multiply your job search is a great way to begin to multiply the opportunities.

Here a few ways to automate your job search and multiply your job leads.

  1. Sign up to have jobs delivered directly to your inbox.

Begin by visiting the websites of the companies that you are interested in.  Visit the “Career” section and look for t “talent community” or “create saved alerts.” This will allow you to define the type of position(s) you are looking for and the company will have them sent to via email.

You will more than likely be inundated with emails if you selected multiple companies. So here are a few tips:

  • It is a good idea to send them to a designated email address. You want to be able to get to them and skim them quickly.
  • Consider having the delivery frequency to daily at first but change it if it becomes too much.

Post your resume on job boards.

When I was a recruiter a big portion of my recruits were “passive candidates.” This means that they did not apply for the positions I had posted.  I would scroll through databases of resumes on site like Monster.com, Careerbuilder and Indeed.com.

Make sure you have an updated, well-crafted resume with the correct contact information posted on these job sites.
