As you build a list of contacts via online research, LinkedIn or other sources, you locate a name but not an email address. Additionally, you could have an email address but aren’t certain if it’s valid. Here are a few ways to track down and verify email addresses:
Once you have completed your plan, review it for gaps. Perhaps some sections are still vague and sketchy, others might be empty. Where gaps exist, translate them into questions and where you might find answers. It may be a website, a directory at the library or someone you know. This is when you need to networking and gather information.
Use your overall action plan to develop a weekly plan. Where you’ve described tactics you intend to utilize and questions you need to answer, create and prioritize a list of tasks for each. Then plan time into your week to devote to each task.
Decide how much time you can devote to job search every week and plan this on your calendar. To fully commit to moving your job search forward, treat these times like any other appointment.
A single task list can quickly become overwhelming and diffuse your focus. Instead, spread your goals over the week with time devoted to each. This will make your plan more manageable and less stressful. You can avoid the tendency to worry about all that needs doing, since you know you have a time preplanned for each task.
