Foundations for the Job Hunt

In this assignment, you’ll be turning in one (1) single document with screenshots of 3 different tasks:

1.) A Google Jobs Alert for any search term you’d like

2.) Your completed account on any one (1) of the following websites:

Upwork.com

Linkedin.com

Guru.com

Freelancer.com

Workaway.info

Monster.com

Indeed.com

3.) A reach-out message to any hiring manager, either via:

-the job application process on one of the above-mentioned sites, or

-as a cold email to a client you’d like to work with (for help with this, review document 2.2, template #4 from last week’s Tyrus template packet)

To take a screenshot:

Mac: Press command+shift+4, then trace a box around the section you’d like to screenshot. A picture file will appear on your desktop.

Windows: Press Windows+shift+S. Click and drag on your screen to select the part of your screen you want to capture. A screenshot of the screen region you selected will be copied to your clipboard. You can paste it in any application by selecting Edit > Paste or pressing Ctrl + V, just as you’d paste a full-screen shortcut taken with the Print Screen key.

Step 1. Navigate to google.com and search for any job type in the following format “[Search term] jobs near [City], [State].

Step 1.2 Press “Alerts” at the top right corner of the page

Step 1.3 Enter your email address and select a frequency for your job alerts.

Step 1.4 Don’t forget to take your screenshot and paste it into your submission document.

Step 2. Navigate around the following sites (- Upwork.com Linkedin.com Guru.com Freelancer.com Workaway.info Monster.com Indeed.com) and decide on which one you’d like to create an account.

Please, if you already have an account on one or more of these sites, create an account on a site you don’t already have. It’s a little annoying, especially if you’re not sure about the site, but this is a great opportunity to check out a new resource—and you’ll thank me if you ever get a job hit from it.

Step 2.2 Set up your account completely. This step will take a little bit of time.

Step 2.3 Don’t forget to take your screenshot and paste it into your submission document.

Step 3. Send your “reach-out message.” This can be an actual submission of your résumé and a cover letter via any of the career sites, or it can be an application for a particular gig on Upwork, Guru, Freelancer or Workaway (these are a particularly good idea if you’d like a lower stakes reach-out), or it can be a cold email (as mentioned above: for help with this, review document 2.2, template #4 from last week’s Tyrus template packet)

Step 3.2 Don’t forget to take your screenshot and paste it into your submission document.

Step 4. Save your document and submit it!
