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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
