Three Ways to Button Up Your Job Search
Get ahead of the job-hunting pack with an organized job search plan. These three job seeking tools can help you get ready to meet with potential employers, manage your job search (it can be a full-time job!) and give you a place to keep invaluable tips and tools you collect along the way. Try one, two or all three of these ideas and put your best foot forward.

1. Create a powerful portfolio
Make a great impression at your next interview with a portfolio that showcases all your best work.

- Design a professional-looking portfolio featuring photo-quality, full-color printing on the front, back and spine with a custom Avery Signature Binder. Plus, it’s easy to do—just go online and design with easy step-by-step instructions.
- Organize your portfolio by type of work, past experience or other accomplishments with printshop quality, durable Avery Index Maker® Dividers.
- Keep clean copies of your résumé in the binder pocket.
- Create personal business cards with Avery Two-Side Printable Clean Edge® Business Cards for networking opportunities.

2. Keep track of your search with a planner
Whether you’re scanning the Internet, going to job fairs or attending campus recruiting events, this planner can help you keep track of your progress every step of the way.

- You can hold more pages than traditional round-ring binders with the durable Avery Signature Binder, featuring EZ-Turn rings.
- Keep track of your job search progress for each position you apply for or company you contact. Create customized sections with Avery Index Maker® Dividers and build a record of your applications, company literature, notes, contacts and follow-up information.

3. Build your personal reference book filled with job-hunting insight and advice
As you come across helpful articles and tips, add them to your reference book you can refer to as a handy resource or inspirational guide.

- When you need a binder that stands up to frequent use, count on the durable and customizable Avery Signature Binder.
- Sort your reference material by subject, such as “networking,” “interviewing” and “negotiating,” or by type of information, such as “classes/workshops,” “articles” and “guidebooks.”

As a job seeker, it’s important to keep your skills up—and your chin up—so you’ll be ready when the right opportunity arrives. Be prepared, proactive and professional with these handy organization tools.
