Expect to get stuck at some point in your job search.  When you are stuck, try something new.  Here’s one idea.  Pick three companies you would like to work for.  Look at all of their open positions. 

1.  Which positions would you like to apply for?  Print the job posts.

2.  Does your resume show how you are qualified?  If not, adapt your resume.

3.  Apply for those jobs.

Here’s the next step.  Find companies that are similar to the three you selected.  They will likely have similar job functions and may have similar open positions. 

Keep looking for new ways to spark your job search.  Try something new.
