Decide on what you want to do: Perhaps the best thing any jobseeker willing to get a good job would do is to make sure s/he counts the financial and emotional cost in getting any job. The best method of doing this is by considering career coaching or counseling either from friends, well-wishers or from experts. Such experts can walk you through your options and provide you with invaluable advice and methods that can allow you to determine what the most ideal career might be for you to pursue.

Scout for internal prospects: One method that is commonly overlooked, but that is made entirely possible thanks to social media, is to actually scout for people you might already know who are working at the company that you want to work for. A simple method consists of searching social media databases online, such as LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter to find people you might know who already work for the company. Connect with these people you already know and gain access to inside knowledge about the company you are interested in working for to ensure a proper fit.

Interview the company: You are probably thinking, “What the heck does that mean?” The reality is that an interview is a two way street. Meaning that you are also the one who interviewing the company to see if there is a good fit, alongside of them interviewing you. It’s a fabulous way to determine if this career and company are worth pursuing.

Research the culture of the company: Even when all things seem to be a green light, make sure you take this process one step further by researching the culture of the company. For example, large entities like Google have a vetted culture and a relaxed nature that is highly sought after by prospective employees. What does the entity you are interested in working for have to offer to you in this regard?

Determine if the job is the right match for you: After you have followed the above tips, you should have a very good idea of any company that you are considering. Now it is time to do some self evaluation. Are you prepared to actually switch jobs and take ownership of your position? Does the company seem to provide you with a lasting employment solution that you will be intrigued by? Do you possess the necessary educational credentials and employment experience to work at this company? These are but a few of the many important questions that should be asked and answered when seeking the job of your dreams and a new career.
