It can be tough to know where to focus your efforts and how to stay on track, but I’ve got a solution for you. In this newsletter issue, I’ll be sharing a comprehensive job search guide checklist to help you stay organized and make the most of your time.

From daily tasks to long-term goals, this job search checklist covers all the bases to ensure that you’re making progress towards your dream job. So whether you’re just starting out or have been looking for a while, read on to discover the steps you should be taking to succeed in your job search.

Don’t forget to keep a record of your job search efforts! Create an activity log and note everything you’ve done today, this week, and month. Make a list of opportunities, contacts, and organizations you need to follow up with and schedule when you should do it.

Daily Activities

  • Search for job openings online: Check job ads on websites, such as,,, local job-ad sites, and the job boards of any professional organizations you are a member of. Do not forget to tap into your referral networks (not just the one you have on LinkedIn), and consider reaching out to affinity groups as part of your job search strategy.
  • Apply for jobs: Submit your resume and cover letter (if they need it) for jobs that match your skills and experience.
  • Network: Send at least ten (and more) new LinkedIn connection requests every day. When reaching out to new connections, be sure to personalize your message and explain why you would like to connect. This helps increase the chances that the person will accept your request and allows you to start building a relationship with them.
  • Follow up: Follow up with contacts and organizations you’ve reached out to and inquire about the status of your application or any potential job openings.
  • Make and return calls: Reach out to potential employers, recruiters, and networking contacts, and return calls from those who have contacted you.

Weekly Activities

  • Follow up on job applications: Check the status of your job applications and follow up on calls you’ve received or resumes you’ve sent…
