Job Search Tips

*Amended from ICJ Employment Resource Guide

  1. Know what kind of job you are looking for. What do you like to do? Do some thinking about your strengths and abilities, and how those things can help direct your job search.
  2. Network! This is statistically your most likely way to get a job. The easiest way to get hired is to find a job that is not being advertised, but how can you find that job if no one knows you’re looking for a job?! Talk to people you know or meet, and let them know that you are looking for work. Ask around to see if others know of employers who hire people with a criminal record (if that applies to you). One of the best ways to get the word out that you want a job is to work at a business through a staffing agency.
  3. Put together a resume. Ask others to read over your resume and give you feedback. Compile a portfolio of any certificates and documentations of awards or accomplishments. You can also gather letters of reference from people who you have worked with in the past, and/or people who know you well.
