How to Define Your Target Job?

How to define your target job for a more efficient job search?

Many people get frustrated very quickly after starting their job search, and the main reason is not defining their target job.

"If I send out my resume to as many employers as I can," they believe, "surely some of them will be interested in me." But the opposite is true.

You'll save much frustration if you do the first step of crafting an understandable and specific job target.


1️⃣ A specific job goal will eliminate time wasted pursuing job postings that are outside of your scope

2️⃣ It will crystalize your brand value proposition which is crucial to hiring managers

3️⃣ It will make you appear confident and focused to your potential employers

4️⃣ It will engage your contacts to notify you about relevant opportunities

The most common directions in defining your target job are:

✅ Aiming for the next job above your current one – a level up position

✅ Targeting a different industry with the same role, or staying in the same industry but targeting a different role

Read the files below about how to get specific about your next role.
