The Riley Guide:

Before You Search

If you're in the market for a new job, it's tempting to just jump straight into your search - but you'll save yourself a lot of time, energy and stress if you lay some groundwork beforehand. For example, you'll be able to target your searches much more precisely, and filter out unhelpful leads more effectively, if you've done a precise assessment of your skills and interests - and you can target your searches toward jobs and industries with growth potential if you're aware of current trends and recent developments in your sector of interest.

The links on this page will point you toward resources designed to get you well-prepared for a successful job search. This includes assessing yourself, researching potential employers and industries, finding a career coach or support group, networking, training, and even verifying that a job offer isn't a scam. Whether you've just decided to start looking for a new job, or you're ready to turbocharge your search with some precise techniques, this page is the place to get started.
