u are applying for. Blanket resumes no longer apply and having several resumes is very common as a search becomes more specific. I would think to speak with someone you know in the profession, knows your skills, and then customize a template that can be easily adjusted to address specific positions you are applying for.…
Perform industry-specific research
Despite the current economic situation, many industries are still actively hiring part-time staff, including health care, accounting, IT, sales, education and fundraising. Performing online research and reading industry-specific journals will inform you of who is hiring in your area.
Set up informational meetings
Speak with those in your professional and personal networks to find out what is going on in specific industries and firms.
Talk to others who work part-time
Gain greater knowledge of different companies’ hiring policies by finding out how others got their part-time jobs. Don’t forget to get names of hiring managers.
Connect with organizations that hire part-time help
Web sites like MyPartTimePRO.com specifically display part-time, professional-level jobs. Other online and offline services are available to help moms and retirees return to work.
Engage recruiters and employment agencies
Don’t just contact general staffing firms; research those who serve your specific industry. Also, many companies outsource their hiring to recruiters. If there is a specific employer you are interested in working for, contact their HR department directly to find out which firms recruit for the company.
Tailor your own position
Many companies strictly hire full-timers. When interviewing, show the hiring manager how you can do a great job in less time. Other firms may not even realize they need your services and will create a position for you based on your captivating presentation.
Actively use online networking opportunities
Make use of online tools other job seekers and recruiters actively use: LinkedIn, Facebook, ListServs and newsgroups.
If you are seeking employment with an association or nonprofit organization, volunteer first. Volunteering provides the potential employer with a first-hand look at who you are and how you perform.

Very shortly, unless you’ve been working in a specialized niche for several years a “list of names” procured by your sourcer will allow you, on the very next day, to sit down at your desk and begin your calling to fill your open position. Even if are working in a specialized niche and you’ve “just begun” your dedication into your chosen sphere a “list of names” will do the very same thing for you. And, to take this one step further, even if you have been working in a specialized niche for a number of years a “list of names” will not only save you time but also uncover new names that have flowed into the ever-changing waters of the employment landscape since the last time you peeked under the covers.
Leaving the specialized recruiter out of this, a “list of names” that is gathered to fit your very specific requirements out of very specific companies and industries will give you the foothold that gives you several steps up, quickly, in your efforts. After all, what is a list of names?
The reader in that string is encouraged to consider a “list of names” as some anonymous confluence and listing of letters in the alphabet that contain no worth or meaning. Nothing, I repeat nothing could be further from the sacred truth. A list of names that is provided by a telephone names sourcer is guaranteed to fit your requirements. After all, if you task me to go into a company that employs the best software engineers in the world doing Java to find all their developers, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m not going to slap “names” onto a document that come willy-nilly out of the target (or out of any other company!) I’m going to go into the department that houses these specific types of software engineers in the company you designate and find out who specifically they are. How more pointed can that be? How more targeted can you get? How much better of a “referral” can those names be?
There’s a bonus hidden in here when you use a telephone names sourcer. A telephone names sourcer is going to find the far greater majority of possible candidates that exist in the ecosystem because – why? Most of these potential candidates cannot be found on the Internet because – why again? They’re not listed anywhere in/under/above/wherever you look on the Internet!
In the process of providing you with mostly hitherto unseen/never before spoken-to specific names (with specific titles and specific phone numbers) out of the specific companies you want I am providing you a most specific and most valuable other commodity – time savings. It is Time, my friends, that is the most precious commodity on earth. Unlike every other single commodity on earth and in the heavens, we can never get more of it. Don’t waste it by wondering what good a list of names is.
