Before you do anything else with your job search, you should always look into whos hiring. This way, your search will be more focused and you wont waste your time by applying to businesses that dont need more employees. When you are applying for jobs in Johnson City, here are some simple steps to find out what industries are in need of employees.
1. Check out business publications: checking the business section of your local paper (as well as the classified ads) can give you a pretty good idea of where to look in your community. Larger publications such as Forbes can give you this information as well, although on a much broader scale. This can be helpful if you are pursuing a career job, as opposed to just a gap-filler.
2. Look for patterns on job boards: this can be more time consuming but it is still worth looking into. Go on to local job boards and search for patterns. Look for similar jobs that pop up frequently. Also, try to identify the top five businesses that have the most openings posted.
3. Look for areas that interest you: according to the Wall Street Journal, it is a good idea to take your hobbies or interests into account while you are job searching. If these interests can be tailored to a certain job in a hiring business/industry, they can jumpstart your career.
