Before You Go Online, Answer These Questions
The answers to these questions will begin to build a list of Keywords you can use in your search.
What Do You Want to Do? What Can You Do? (Skills and Occupations)
What skills do you have, what interests, etc. Identify general occupations that interest you, not specific job titles.
Think healthcare or sales, not Chief Medical Officer or Director of International Sales
Who Do You Want to Work For? (Industries and Employer Preferences)
What industry interests you, what type of employer? If you have some specific companies you want to target, great!
Fortune 500, Inc 500, high-tech start-up, family-friendly organization...
Where Do You Want to Live and Work? (Location location location)
Is there a particular city, state, region, or country?
California, Southern Maryland, "someplace with sailing, good golf courses, and very little snow."
Don't laugh. I know someone who focused his search this way.
Saying "anywhere they'll hire me" will not work. There's just too much stuff online. However, you can take the time to research the industry or occupation you're interested in and find out where they are hiring people....
