If you’ve found it hard finding a job, you’re not alone. Due to the saturated market caused by Covid-19 there are a lot of people who were previously laid off and are now looking for new work. Hopefully this pandemic will subside sometime soon and we’ll be able to return to normal life, however today, we’re working with what we’ve got. But that doesn’t mean there’s nowhere to go and no way to make progress! If you’ve been finding it hard to get a job that you enjoy or that pays well, it can help to boost your resume. Some of the major things that employers look for is job experience, credentials, and skill set. There are a couple different ways you can get those. Here are 3.

1.      Just have more work experience. 

If you’re looking at a specific field of work, it would benefit you if you’ve experienced work in different areas of that field. One of the best ways to get jobs like that is though a temp agency. These agencies find their clients jobs in their community in their line of expertise. For instance, if you live in San Francisco, you’d search up temp agency San Francisco and then tell them what line of work you’re searching for. They’ll help you find something that will benefit you and that you’ll be able to contribute to. These companies are also called staffing agencies because they help companies build their staff. So, they’re actually being contacted by companies looking for more workers! If you’re looking for work, try visiting staffing San Francisco.

2.      Better referrals. 

A referral from a friend won’t come off the same way as a referral from a former employer or a company executive. If you can have higher ups verify that you’re an honest, capable, hard-working employee, then the interviewer will be more likely to take their recommendation into consideration.

3.      Make it look professional. 

There are multiple programs you can use that have a resume feature. Make sure that if you’re submitting something representing yourself, it looks professional, clean, is easy to read, and puts your best foot forward. If it’s jumbled, doesn’t make sense, or doesn’t show your best qualities, the interviewer won’t want to read it and brush it aside. You want to make sure that you’re spending as much time reading about you as possible.
