Looking for a job in today's struggling economy can easily be a daunting task, to say the least. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed and discouraged...where do you start? If this is the position you find yourself in, then pay attention. This article was written with you in mind.

Think about what you can offer a company. Of course, you want a job, and any job will do, but you need to provide value as well. That's why you should come up with a succinct summary of what you can do for the company you're interviewing with. It's a smart way to show that you're interested in making a contribution.

Ask friends or parents for advice on what they did to get their job. Sometimes you will find new techniques that you can incorporate into your job search. Also, you can use these people for contacts to specific people or a company when you are trying to land your job.

Don't underestimate the power of a simple thank you note after an interview. It doesn't need to be flowery or long. A simple thank you for their time and consideration is enough. The note shows that you appreciate the individuals who interviewed you, as well as proves you are willing to take time to do things thoroughly.

Keep in mind that finding a good job can take some time. Do not give up if you are not finding what you want right away. Consider taking a job that pays well even if this is not what you want to do so you can support yourself while looking for a better job.

Take a test drive before your next interview. One of the worst things you can do is arrive late to your interview. Avoid this by making a trip to the location well in advance. This will ensure you know exactly how to get there so you can be on time the day of your interview.

Figure out what kind of resume you want to use. There are different kinds of resumes, and each one is a little better for certain positions. For example, you may want to use a skill based resume if you are making a jump from one industry to another. The right kind of resume will highlight the most appropriate things about you, to get you an interview.

 Older job seekers may benefit by using the functional resume form rather than the chronological resume form. The functional resume lists major experiences and accomplishments right at the top rather than listing all experiences and accomplishments in chronological order. You could create several functional resumes to target different types of jobs.

Trying to find a job in today's job market can often make even those of us with the lengthiest of resumes feel insecure. But with a clear plan of action and some useful tips under your belt, you stand a much better chance of landing the job you want!
