How To Find A Job In 2022 - 5 Easy Ways

Finding a new job in 2022 has never been easier or more relevant. I’m confident that 2022 will be remembered in history as one of the EASIEST times to ever find a dream job. In the wake of the great resignation, we’re seeing people switch industries, go back to college, or even opt to switch to polywork. 

While this may seem new, according to a 2019 study of baby boomers (linked below) the average person changes careers 12 times in their lifetime. 

Yes, you read that correctly.                               

The Average Person Changes Careers 12 times in their lifetime. 

That number is only primed to go up. 

So let’s go over 5 easy ways you can find a job in 2022.

  • Online Job Boards

When you are looking to find a job in 2022, one of the easiest places to begin is by placing your resume on Job Boards. 

Websites like CareerBuilder, Monster, Zip Recruiter, Indeed, and our own Accurate Personnel job board post 10,000s of new positions every single day. 

You can sort through your most preferred positions or just upload your resume and let the recruiters reach out to you. 

  • LinkedIn DM some people

When you want to see pictures of your nieces and nephews, go to Facebook.

When you want to learn the coolest new dance trend, go to TikTok. 

When you want to network professionally from the comfort of your couch, go to LinkedIn. 

LinkedIn is THE social platform made for professionals. 

You can easily apply for jobs, DM decision makers, or even just get connected with a recruiter.
You can also take skill assessments & courses to improve your competencies. 

My wife got her last corporate job thanks to a LinkedIn referral and I’ve been sold on it ever since.

  • Networking “ask a friend” 

This sounds easy, but can be difficult in practice. 

In a world where we are constantly comparing ourselves to our peers online, asking a friend for support can feel like admitting defeat. 

However, reaching out to your personal network and letting them know you are “on the market” can open up SO MANY opportunities for you. 

The average human in the United States, has about 300 people in the personal network. 

If you reached out to just a handful of people and just some of those people asked around…

You’ll have opened the door to dozens of people who could potentially have your next opportunity for you. 

  • Job Fairs

As old school as this might sound, job fairs are making a come back. 

We all know the feeling of sending in a resume online to employers and thinking…

“If they just met me in person I KNOW they would hire me”

Well it’s because of this that Job Fairs are still an amazing way to get connected with potential employers. 

  • Recruiters/Staffing Agencies 

Recruitment/Employment/Staffing agencies are companies that are dedicated to matching YOU with your dream career. 

Staffing agencies will often offer training, support, and resources to the dedicated job seeker. 

They have existing relationships with 100s of employers and can help you get your “foot in the door”. 

The best part? 

Staffing agencies are FREE for you, the job seeker. 

So there is really no downside to having a recruiter out there looking for employment opportunities for you. 

Conclusion

Well there you have it!
