Searching for a job is a challenging task whether you are looking for your first job, switching careers or re-entering the job market. The employment outlook is dynamic, responding to current economic conditions in the United States and abroad. During periods of economic stability and growth, employers' confidence enables them to do more hiring. Conversely, during times of economic turmoil, mass layoffs and a lack of new hiring might characterize the job market. Despite this ebb and flow, most employers will always be on the lookout for quality talent. The purpose of your cover letter, resume and interview is to prove to a potential employer that you have the talent he or she seeks.

It is important to consider that finding employment is a job in itself, and it best approached with the same dedication, organization, enthusiasm and follow-through as if it were your dream job. If you are energized about your job search, rather than annoyed, the process may be more enjoyable, and likely more fruitful. Potential employers will be able to pick up on your enthusiasm and commitment. This guide to finding a job will explore the job search process, from the search to the offer, providing tips and examples along the way.
