Companies hiring in August
Debra Auerbach, CareerBuilder writer
If you've been job searching for a while and not making much progress, it can be easy to get discouraged. But there are some simple ways to get out of that job-search rut and get back on track.
Start by applying more structure to your day. If you designate specific hours each day to conduct your job-search duties, you'll be more productive -- and likely more successful -- than if you were to randomly search off and on throughout the week.
Also try volunteering for an organization that supports a cause of interest to you. Not only will the work fill a resume gap, but it will also be a rewarding experience.
Finally, consider expanding your search to include companies or industries that you may not have previously considered. While something may not seem like the perfect fit at first, you may have transferable skills that could make you a great candidate for the role.
