Job Searching for the Future

Have you tried stopping into a company of medium to large size and dropped off an application recently?  If you did then you probably got the same result that many people are seeing these days which is... not much of anything.  Technology has brought many changes into our lives in the past twenty years and just about everything has been revised in some sort of way.  Looking for a job has never been easier in many ways but can seem so hard without the personal feel that we've grown accustomed to over the years.  Filling out an application online for many people without every walking into the organization seems backwards but has easily become the norm.  So the larger question at hand is how do we become prepared for job searching in the future?

1) Be able to find a job on Facebook - Facebook is going to become more and more a part of the way that people communicate and interact.  They have almost 600 million members and that number is rising every day.  The lines are starting to blur between private personal information online and open information and being prepared to submit your application on Facebook will soon become the norm.

2) Have a website to go with your resume - A social media speaker would probably say that your personal website is going to be one of the most powerful tools in moving forward in a job search.  Just like people Google a place to order pizza today they are going to use Google to find future employees and consultants in the near future.

3) Be comfortable with the changes - Life moves at a rapid pace and with advances in technology things are only going to change faster.  Accepting that the process to find a job has changed is the first step to success.
