Summer is winding down, and as you start to settle down for the Fourth Quarter, you may be thinking it’s time for a career change. You’ve heard the reports and have seen all the updates on how hot the labor market is. If you’re ready to make the jump and join the 3.6 million people voluntarily quitting their jobs, here are three ways to find a job in today’s market.

Get your resume in order

If it’s been a while since you’ve updated your resume, the first thing you will want to do is brush the dust off. Take a few moments and review your latest copy and identify work experiences, accomplishments, certifications, or even volunteer experience you want to add. This will be a strong starting point for your job search because no matter what job you apply to, you’ll need an updated resume.

Keep in mind that you should be tailoring each resume for every application you submit. You can customize your resume to mirror the job description and pull out specific duties or responsibilities that will help sell yourself as a strong candidate. This may take you a little longer, but trust us, it will be worth it when you start receiving more callbacks.
