Resourcefulness In Finding A Job

By Mark Louie G. Tobias
What do we need when we look for a job? We need to be resourceful. Why did I say this? Let’s say you have the skills or the talent, you are lucky if you can support your skills financially and start a business. But what if you cannot support what you really enjoy doing? Then you need to find a job where you can enjoy the skills that you have. In looking for a job, consider first this question “Where can I find a Job?” This question may be simple but this is really where we want to start.


Being resourceful is what we need in order to answer the question. You must know where to look for a job. You must also know who to talk to in searching for your desired job. Where to look? There are a lot of places in finding a job, like newspaper ads, internet job search sites, radio and television ads, job agencies, job fairs and also your College and University that offers job advise. But these are only the known or the open-job resources. What I mean by being resourceful is you do not rely on the open-job resources but know how to find the hidden-job resources.
What are these hidden-job resources? You won’t find these jobs unless you use networking. Now what do I mean by networking? By using networking you must know the places where to look for and the people to talk with. Where are the places we must look for the hidden jobs? Just go straight to the company that you want to apply for. Sometimes companies do not rely on advertising or posting their job vacancies, they rely mostly on their employees’ referral. Don’t be afraid to ask the company either by making a phone call through their human resource department or just by simply visiting the company.

If you know someone who works for the company that you want to apply for don’t be afraid to ask that person to help you apply for the job. Nowadays an employee referring someone to the company can get a commission of that referral gets hired. He helps you get a job but you also help him because of the commission he receives.

There are a lot of ways to look for a job; it’s just a matter of how to use your resourcefulness in finding the job you desired.

I'm trying to finish college at MSU and wanted to make a couple of extra bucks. I got scammed quite a few times, but found something that actually makes me about $200 bucks a month now. I know it isn't much, but at least it is legit. You can check it out and I hope it helps you out too.

Being resourceful is key to finding a job! Another great way to search/research potential job oportunities is with a business directory, like Cortera". Using Cortera, you can get free company profiles and information, which is also beneficial to learn who/where to send your resume to!

Good luck!
