CREATE A SIGN ON A PIECE OF PAPER.
- Use a few eye catching images or text that relates to your job search, job skills or past projects.
- List your job skills.
- Include contact information including name, phone and email. Get a separate email for this if you are concerned about where you are posting this paper "sign."
- Keep it simple and eye catching.
- Photo paper makes a great "poster" with a quality finish.
Post your poster at art centers, coffee shops, craft stores, any and all places that you frequent in your area.
For example, if there is a Tech Shop in your area post it on the bulletin board. This is how both of my children found jobs! Seriously, despite all their social media skills, they found jobs with 8.5” x 11” pieces of paper on bulletin boards. I suggested it to a friend of theirs….he also got a job. This low tech method really works.
