The Best Ways To Find A Job in 2023

Gone are the old days.

It's a new world out there, digital first, even AI first, and you need to know how to navigate it.

It's a fine place to start. Let everyone know you're currently looking, both your current connections and potential ones who might see your profile by showing it in your profile picture.

Job Boards

Don't miss the big ones like monster.com, Google for Jobs, CareerBuilder and Indeed. Also check specialized job sites like Dice for tech professionals, ArtsThread for artists, and TeamWorkOnline for the sports industry.

Company Websites

Pursue your dream employer by checking out their site for Job listings. This is sometimes listed under Careers.

Friends and Family

A referral makes you 10x more likely to land that job, especially when a friend or family member already works there. Definitely utilize your friends & family network.

Job Fairs

Whether virtual or in-person, a job fair is a great way to connect with recruiters and potential opportunities.

Cold Calling

Even if someone isn't advertising job opportunities, there may be a fit. Ask about upcoming vacancies and always include a copy of your resume. Don't be discouraged if you don't hear back.

An Up-To-Date Resume

Highlight any highly-transferrable skills - anything that you can take from one job to the next.

Informational Interviews

While you wait to hear back on potential job opportunities that you apply for, network with potential coworkers by conducting informational interviews with them. Many people are happy to do this and help someone out in their career. And if you make a connection with someone, it could lead to a potential referral.


All of the above, rinse, repeat. Keep doing all of these things and keep your head up, as it's only a matter of time before you land the perfect gig for you.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.
