With the right IT recruiters, IT contractors can have a relatively short hunt for IT jobs. However, IT consultants will still save themselves a lot of confusion and frustration in their job hunt, no matter how short it is or how good their IT headhunters are, if they organize themselves a bit. Here are 3 easy ways IT professionals can get themselves organized and get their dream job faster.
- Use a paper planner: Keeping everything in email is fine, but at some point it will be tough to visualize it all. Keeping one planner on paper that you frequently update will make a big difference.
- Keep an excel spreadsheet of jobs you’re applying to: You’ll never need to ask about a job description for a second time or be confused again if you start logging your jobs and relevant details into an excel spreadsheet. Updating often will make it an easy task, too.
- Clean and separate your interview clothes: You never want to have to scramble for the right interview day outfit. Set a few aside and make sure they’re always clean and ready to go.
