There’s lots of good news in the labor market
these days. Nationwide unemployment, hovering at about 3.5 percent, is at its lowest point since 1969. And employers keep adding hundreds of thousands of jobs each month, with 4.8 million added in 2022 alone. So why can't you find a job?
If you’ve been looking, waiting, and wishing but now feel discouraged about not finding a job
, don’t give up hope. Here are some possible reasons you’re having difficulty and two simple tips for improving your chances.
When Everyone’s Hiring, But You Can’t Find a Job
If you’ve been spending months or longer trying to find your dream job but aren’t having any luck, these suggestions could be your ticket to success.
It’s stressful for many people, but the more you network, the easier it becomes. And it isn’t just about attending in-person group meetings. You can also get more active on LinkedIn, share your resume with friends and friends-of-friends, and mention at parties that you’re looking for a job.
#2 Take Advantage of Free Job Boards
Many agencies list jobs
in more than one specific industry. They often also have partnerships or know of other opportunities that would be a good fit for your skills. You might also want to consider applying to companies in industries other than what you’re used to working in. If you don’t have the skills needed to make a switch, think about taking some courses
and earning certification, which will make you a more attractive candidate no matter where you apply.
