If you're interested in finding a microbiology job quicker, it's time to get focused. Defining the specific work and sector you're interested in can streamline your job search. Here's a few tips to get started.
Target specific companies. For example, you might be interested in pharmaceutical companies listed on the 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Write down your top choices and market your skills to them directly.
Keep on top of news. Reading business journals will keep you up to date on which companies are expanding and might be adding an additional microbiology job. Contact the company directly and ask to speak with the hiring manager.
Work with a recruiter. When working with a staffing firm, give them a targeted description of what types of microbiology job openings you're interested in applying to. As a result, you'll only be matched with firms that meet your job criteria.
