Looking for a job is hard, and many times you are going to be feeling super overwhelmed especially if your bank account reflects the number of people who have called you for an interview.

Time waits for no one, especially those who need it the most.

Looking for a job can be super time consuming and so we want to help you speed it up and get you the job of your dreams.

Getting the job of your dreams doesn’t have to be as hard as you think it is. We are going to give you the tips and tricks to get that dream job.

Step 1: What job, do really want?

Sounds like a really silly thing to ask, but believe it or not, most people don’t actually know what their dream job is.

If you don’t know what you really want we’ve got you covered.

Answer these few questions:

1. What makes you happiest in life?

2. What makes you feel invincible?

3. What do you believe that you are insanely good at?

4. Who do you look up to?

5. When last did you do something that you loved so much that you lost track of time doing it? What was it?

6. What would you do if you never had to worry about paying any bills?

Before you start looking for a job, understanding what you really love doing and what you are really good at is one of the biggest keys to success in life is knowing what you want and what you are good at. You will be able to confidently talk about it and prove to the interviewer that you are the person they need.

Step 2: Why you?

What is your story? It’s time to think about your story and all the things that you have been doing up until this point, including all your previous jobs and skills that you have that separates you from the crowd.

1. What makes you the right person for the job?

2. What is your background?

3. What makes you want this dream job so badly? Once you’ve figured out your story you will be able to justify why you are the right person for the job that you want.

Step 3: Network, Network, Network.

You wouldn’t believe it but almost every single job that I have worked in, have all come directly or indirectly from the network that I have built over the years.

Having a good network is the ultimate resource to have to get you in a winning position to get you that dream job.

Start with family and friends. Reach out to old high school and college friends, use online services and apps to start building your network.

Some of our best choices:

1. Facebook You wouldn’t believe how many people you have in your friends' list that are in positions to help you.

2. Instagram Not just for that perfect selfie, or food porn, but a great way to follow people who inspire you and have the job you want.

3. LinkedIn A social network filled with people who have the job that you want.

4. Meetup A perfect way to join groups in your area that have similar interests, build your network with like-minded people whilst you take part in activities that you live.

The key to success, when building your network, is offering value to other people without expecting them to return the favour. What can you do for them that will help them achieve what they want? Remember that offering free services are more likely to be accepted.
