Do Something You Love

If possible find a job in a field you love.  If your happy doing what you love it won't be like a job.  If you love sports look for a job at a sports team or if you love stocks seek out financial firms.  If your money or time is restrained this can be tough but if your lucky you will find your dream job.  Keep your resume ready for that dream opportunity and you may never have to look for a job again.

Send Thank You Notes

If you just went on a successful interview make sure to get each interviewers name and email or physical mailing address.  Send a brief thank you to each person thanking them for taking the time to meet and consider you as a candidate.  Include your contact information for further questions or follow up as well.  Not everyone does this simple follow up to interviews.  These thank you notes can impress the interviewers and most importantly keep your name fresh in their memories.
