5 Ways to speed up your job search this fall SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Whether you're unemployed, unhappily employed, or simply scanning the job boards to see what's out there, you likely want to end your job search as soon as possible. Here are some tips to help push the process along so that your job search doesn't become stagnant.

1) Apply to a lot of relevant Jobs: While it can be intimidating to apply to 10 jobs in a single day for which you feel are a good fit, it's much better to throw as many fishing lines into the water as possible. The worst-case scenario is that you'll have multiple offers for an interview or job offers to choose from. 2) Explore New Job Industries: In most cases, job seekers tend to confine their search to one particular industry. Although you might have on preferred field of work, there might be job offers waiting for you in other (sometimes similar) industries. So keep applying to jobs in your field. But at the same time, spend some time investigating other lines of work where your skills can be utilized.

3) Have Your References Ready To Go: Never put a reference on your resume or job application without contacting them first. Once you reach out to your reference, let them know you've included them and when they should expect a phone call. Once you interview, contact them again and give them an update.
