IT jobs are among the most rewarding and interesting jobs out there if you have the skill set to be an effective team member.
As time goes on in our careers, many people will want to find a new position, even if they choose to remain in the IT field. Other IT professionals wish to relocate to another part of the country, or just take on the new challenges and experiences that comes with a new career position.
But how do you go about finding a new position in the IT field, and what methods work best to find a job in a new city or working with a new team?
When most people think of job hunting, they picture themselves pouring over the want ads in the classified section of their local paper while they sip coffee in the local coffee shop. This may be a caffeine-filled way to spend your day, but it is not the best use of your time, nor is it the best way to find a job.
Another method is to call the businesses and organizations for whom you might want to work. This can be a path to employment, but randomly calling companies and trying to make contacts may not be the best course of action.
