You’ve applied to every job online. You’ve reached out to everyone in your network. When it comes to finding a new opportunity, you feel like you’ve hit the wall. Fear not, because that wall can be broken down with a little positive thinking and creativity:

Dedicate Yourself to Being the Best

When it comes to job searching, you can’t just go through the motions. Each step of the process has to be your best effort. Make a trip to a job fair worth your time with a little preparation. Details like a firm handshake, eye contact, and a classic suit can put you a step above the rest. Not to mention nailing an “elevator pitch” of why you’re a great candidate. Read more ways to get the gig at a job fair.

Think Outside the Box

You’ve heard enough about networking and searching for jobs online. These days many companies have social media presences. Search for job listings on Twitter, ask a company a job-related question on their Facebook page, and get your name out their socially. Be sure to spell everything correctly and be courteous.

Take Advantage of Every Opportunity

While a temporary assignment may not be what you’re looking for, it’s a great opportunity to earn extra cash, make some connections, and learn a new skill. You never know what or who will point you in the right direction so don’t turn down a chance to branch out into new territory. Read more about how to make the most out of every temporary assignment.
