How do you get your dream job?
The first step in finding the job of your dreams is to know what you want. That is my specialty: the "figuring out what you want" part of the process. If you already know what you want to do, but you aren't sure how to get that kind of job, then you need help with job hunting. Since job search is not my specialty, I'll refer you to the experts.
There are lots of good resources to help with your job hunt. I can recommend several web sites that focus on using the internet in your job search. Two excellent gateway sites for job hunting are the Riley Guide and JobHuntersBible. A California-based site that includes easily usable general information for the job-hunter is JobStar.
If you're a book reader more than a web surfer, a couple of classic "how to" books about job-hunting are What Color is Your Parachute? by Richard Bolles and The PIE Method for Career Success by Daniel Porot. Other recommendations for self-help readers: The Complete Job Search Handbook by Howard Figler; Guerilla Tactics in the New Job Market by Tom Jackson; and Knock 'em Dead by Martin Yate.
The books mentioned above should be easy to find at your local bookstore or library. And while you are at the library, you might ask your local career or business librarian your still unanswered questions. Librarians are there to help and can connect you with career services right in your community, typically offered by educational institutions and government agencies.
Getting a creative job is pretty much the same as getting any other job, although the competition tends to be keener and the positions less permanent. That means you might as well learn good job-hunting skills now. If you're presently hunting for a job, you have my sympathy. Hang in there! Getting the job of your dreams in the future is worth enduring some discomfort now.
