Tips for Online Job Seekers

Presented by JobsInSports.com

Online career boards put thousands of opportunities at the fingertips of job seekers. While that wealth of available positions can be encouraging, it can also be overwhelming. To yield the best results from an online job search, keep these strategies in mind:

1. Narrow your search. Rather than focusing on general-purpose job boards, consider starting on industry-specific sites, such as JobsInSports.com. This single step allows you to bypass a lot of the “noise” of online job seeking, making your work much easier.
2. Set yourself apart. Distinguish yourself to potential employers by following all protocol, providing all requested materials, and composing a cover letter that captures your unique voice.
3. Keep your information simple and direct. Avoid tangents—while they may be “attention-getting,” they have the potential to distract or annoy busy human resources directors who need to plow through piles of application materials.
4. Proofread. A single mistake in application materials can lead to disqualification. Reread documents as often as necessary to ensure they are error-free.
