How long does it take to get a job? It depends on a lot of factors. However, if you’ve been looking for more than 3 months, it’s time to do something different.  Here’s how to fix a job search taking too long—so you can get hired.

Get Ready to Change Up Your Moves

Don't do the same thing and expect a different result. This is a great job market, so there’s no reason you can’t get hired. If you aren’t getting results now, it’s time to shake it up.

No Interviews?

If you can’t get interviews, there’s a problem with either your resume, your cover letter, or in how you’re approaching your search.

The best way to get interviews is NOT through online applications. Everyone is applying online for the same jobs you are. To cut through the noise, you have to contact hiring managers directly.

What’s more, if you contact hiring managers directly whether or not they have a job opening posted, you will uncover the so-called hidden jobs that others don’t know about yet. You could be first in line to be interviewed for that job!

Here’s what you need to see:

Interviews but No Offers?

If you’re getting interviews but not offers, you need to polish up your interview skills. That may mean studying and learning some better interview answers, or even working with an interview coach to practice.

You also need to do what I recommend to every job seeker—bring a 30-60-90-day plan to your interview. These are job interview miracle working tools that give the hiring manager a test drive of you on the job. These plans have snagged great job offers within minutes of completing interviews—even for people who’d been struggling for months.

Need More?

If you need more help or direction or even just confidence, then you should absolutely consider career coaching. Top athletes have coaches. Top executives have coaches.

Coaching can dramatically up your game and put you in your dream job in record time.
