    Checklist for Job Seekers
    • Make a list of skills you have that you want to use in your job.
    • Decide what jobs you are qualified to do so that you have a goal. Hiring managers want to know what you want to do. Be specific.
    • Create a résumé listing jobs, skills, accomplishments, education, training.
    • Make a list of people who need to know you are looking for employment and give them your résumé or list of job qualifications… 80% of the people find jobs through other people.
    • Learn how to speak about yourself – name, skills, goals, etc. Make it brief so that you can tell anyone you talk to.
    • Practice answers to common interview questions. Public libraries and Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) have lists of questions to practice.
    • Find out what training is available at the TWC offices to gain more skill
