Identify the Opportunity

Before you start job hunting, make sure that your resume is as complete and up-to-date as possible. Your resume is an important distillation of who you are, where you come from, and what you can offer. Don't just do an Internet search, memorize their mission, and be done with it. Remember that you're competing with lots of other faculties for a single position. You may not be able to change your natural intelligence, or the skills that you come to the job with, but you can always change your work ethic. Work harder than everyone else by researching the company or companies you wish to work for like your life depended on it.

Make a list of all of your friends, relatives, and acquaintances. Identify the institutions and contact them one by one and ask them if they know details about the work environment for which they could recommend you. Don't be too humble or apologetic. Tell them what you're looking for, but let them know you're flexible and open to suggestions. This is not the time to be picky about jobs; a connection can get your foot in the door, and you can negotiate pay or switch positions once you've gained experience and established your reputation.

Treat your search as a full-time exercise: the job of getting a job. You are employed by yourself as a sales person/marketing person selling the product you.
