Ways to spring forward in your job search NEW YORK, NY -- Keep It Fresh: Keep your attitude positive and demonstrate your interest and passion for the opportunity by being well-prepared and asking insightful questions. Step away and review your materials from a different perspective, making changes and updates accordingly.

Re-Energize Your Search: Get out of the rut you're in by re-invigorating your search. Review your target list and add new companies to approach. Research those companies and identify contacts for informational interviews. Talk to people about how to best leverage your skills and experience in the field you're pursuing. Hone Your Interview Skills: If you're getting interviews but no offers, it's time for some fine-tuning. Identify common interview questions, as well as those you've already experienced. Practice writing out your answers and delivering the responses out loud. If possible, identify a resource to conduct a mock interview, and ask for extensive feedback.

Fine-Tune Your Cover Letters: Are you sending out lots of letters but not receiving interviews? If so, it's time to review your cover letters. Is each one truly customized to the position? Do you demonstrate to the employer how you can address their specific needs and add value? Network Like Crazy: Get out there and identify new contacts at your target companies. Attend professional association meetings. Meet people in a variety of ways and learn what they do and what they like about their companies.
