There are many ways to find a job: You may find a job talking to the right person in a convenience store or it may take you countless hours of sending out resumes and filling out applications. Sometimes, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. Whatever kind of job you are looking for, the best of luck to you.


Not everybody wants to be an astronaut, at least not full-time. Deciding what you want to do for a living not only makes your job search a little easier, your active decision to pursue a chosen field means you are far more likely to wind up with a job you love, rather than a job that you put up with.

List Your Preferences

Knowing what you like and don't like will narrow your potential job pool down to a manageable amount of possibilities. Use the following questions to get you started on your list:

What type of job best suits your personality? If you're not a morning person, jobs that require you to get up before dawn are not going to work for you. Find a job that suits your natural temperament.

What kind of schedule do you want? Do you want the basic 40-hours or are you in the market for a flexible schedule that allows you to spend more time with your family?

Are you willing to relocate? Some jobs are more prevalent in certain parts of the country. It's rather difficult to be a lobster fisherman in Montana.

How much money do you want to make? Although money is important, it should not be the only factor that you use to pick a job.
