Secrets of finding a job in new city
Too tired of working in the same city? Need a change? Want to take up a job in a new city? Do not have any contacts? Here are some tips to help you to find a new job in the city:
You must update your resume as well as the Linkedin profile to the desired city that you are looking for. When there is a requirement in the desired city, the recruiter will be able to find you out through the zip code search.
Join LinkedIn groups as per the geography
Networking is always important irrespective of the job profile that you are looking for. If you have decided on the city that you want to move to, connect with professionals of the particular city. There are several groups in LinkedIn which are industry and geography focussed. You can be a part of such groups and try to introduce yourself and get to know the members there.
Choose the companies
There are several companies in an industry that offers similar roles. But, you cannot be following all of them. Choose the best 5 companies that you are keen to join and follow them. You cannot wait for jobs to search for you, but, it has to be the other way round. When there is a job opening in the desired firm, grab the opportunity and apply for it.
A smart cover letter
You can be specific in your cover letter as in why you are keen on changing the city and whether you are expecting the relocation expenses or not. Most of the times recruiters are confused about the change and expectations so your reasons must be convincing so that have high chances to be short-listed.
Search a recruiter
You will find several job postings on LinkedIn and Facebook groups. You can slightly be different with your job search. Find out the recruiter of the particular field or particular city and contact them. Remember every recruiter is under the pressure to close the vacancy. If you are able to convince the recruiter, you will surely be contacted as and when the desired opening is there.
