Did you know that February is one of the best times of the year to look for a job? Whether you are looking for part-time or full-time work, this is the time of year when hiring managers are looking for people like YOU to fill positions. Here are 3 tips to prepare for a job search.

1. Make sure your resume is up-to-date

Updating your resume is a perfect way to prepare for a job search. Keeping an updated resume template can help you easily tailor your resume to the specific job. It’s also good practice to update your resume quarterly or, at the very least, once a year.

2. Reconnect with your references

It’s a good idea to keep your references in the loop. Schedule a call or a time to meet with one of your references beforehand so that you can review your goals and your experiences to make sure they know what to speak on. This will you allow you to update them on your search and get some feedback for future interviews.

3. Don’t give up
