Finding Your Dream Job with Monster.com

One of the most stressful (yet exciting!) things about college is knowing that when it's almost all over, it's time to find a job. Not just any job though - a job that you love! With graduation season come and gone, I thought it would be the appropriate time to share a post all about finding your dream job.

Remain calm.

Yes, the first step to finding your dream job is to stop freaking out! Looking for jobs or even internships (if you're still in college), is incredibly stressful and draining. During my summer internship search, I made sure to step back from staring at my resume try to perfect it or researching my favorite companies to do things that I enjoyed. 

Find the perfect job search website.

The internet is truly a blessing now. There are so many resources available online to help you find the perfect job, including the best one, Monster.com! Monster has millions of job listings, a free resume assessment (which I'll discuss later in the post), a resume writing service, an app that allows you to easily apply for jobs, career horoscopes, thousands of articles with expert career advice, and so much more!

You can search jobs by keywords, company name, job title, etc. as well as search by location, which I absolutely love for finding jobs near me. 

Get your resume in top shape.

Like I said, job/internship searches definitely involve some resume scrutinizing. You want your resume to be absolutely perfect before you submit to your dream company, since the average employer only looks at your resume for six seconds. You have six seconds to wow them. 

I am SO grateful for the Monster Free Resume Assessment because it seriously caught so many issues with my resume (which I thought was perfect before I submitted, mind you). In addition to millions of job postings, Monster offers this amazing resume assessment for FREE.

Spend a little time each day exploring job postings.

While you shouldn't overwhelm yourself going through job postings for hours, it can be a good idea to spent just a little time each day or each week looking through new postings that you might be qualified for. It's not just about finding a job; it's about finding the right job.


New jobs are posted everyday, so don't get discouraged if you don't see something that appeals to you right away. Set alerts for your favorite companies so you can be notified immediately whenever they post a new job!

Be proactive.

When you apply for a job, give it a bit of time, but then try and find a contact that you can follow up with. Let them know that you've applied for a position and wanted to reiterate your enthusiasm for the role. This will show them that you're super excited, and will hopefully elicit a response!


What is your dream job?
