Here are 3 job-seeking goals that will keep you moving in the right direction:

  1. Effective Time Management - Developing disciplined time organization will be your most valuable job hunting skill, because it transfers into the workplace. No matter what your career or place of employment, time is money! Use it wisely and stay consistent in your search.
  2. Research - Make a list of the best Atlanta-area companies and the companies you would like to work for. Employment at one of these companies should be one of your goals, even if they are not currently hiring.
  3. Network - Connect with employers and employees within your field every week. This keeps you fresh in their minds so that when an opportunity presents itself, you’re the person they’ll think of.
