The Professional Job Search

I am often asked by candidates, “How do I go about finding a job?”

  1. Know what your Strengths, Passions and Gifts are….
    (see the General Career Tools for more on this)
  2. Research and know your Marketplace
    (Develop a list of the Target Companies in your area) Google Maps is a terrific way of finding engineering firms in your area…. Simply zoom in on your City and key in key words that describe your area of interest. Google web search will also develop additional companies in your area. For example: if you are looking for structural engineering firms in the Denver area, simply type in “Structural Engineering” 80205. You will be surprised how many firms you have never heard of that may do structural engineering in your City.
