Now that the job market is tipping in job seekers' favor, you may as well take advantage of that and be a bit more deliberate in your job search. Even if you've already been in a job for a few years, is it one that will take you somewhere, at a company you love, or are you feeling stuck? Now is the time to get the right job at the right company.
The thing is, while getting a job is now easier, there's still tough competition when it comes to landing a job at the best companies. Many other people want to work there, too. So how do you get your foot in the door?
Many of the biggest and best companies across nearly every industry rely on temporary staffing firms to assist them with supplying temporary employees for special projects and to help them identify potential direct hire employees.
Let your recruiter know which companies are at the top of your list and make a game plan to get you there. Keep in mind that it may involve a need to gain additional skills first in similar roles and at similar companies prior to landing at your dream organization.
