How to devise a smart job search strategy CHICAGO, IL -- Devise a smart job search strategy based on your career targets, brand, and achievements that enables you to access 200-300 potential opportunities in 3-6 months. Why 200-300? Because a job search is a bit of a numbers game. It takes an average of seven job interviews to produce one job offer. If you're conducting a full-time search, you should be able to make your 200-300 contacts in 90 days; if you're in a part-time search, then you'll likely need six months or more to make that happen.

But what constitutes a smart job search strategy? A savvy search strategy includes the following. Clear job search targets that define the position levels, titles, companies, industries, and geographic areas you are seeking. Enough targets. If there are fewer than 200-300 targets in your preferred geographic areas you may not be able to make enough contacts to generate enough interviews or offers.

The right search tactics. There are specific methodologies you can use to promote your candidacy. Which ones best suit your career level, personality, and available search time? First, define your career targets. Second, clarify which of the primary executive search tactics are right for you to leverage. There are 5: recruiters, job boards, targeted companies, LinkedIn, and networking. Third, develop a strategy for each search tactic you employ. Fourth, road map each search tactic and distill your plan into realistic weekly action steps.
