The best jobs to be found are at local and small businesses (especially in Lawrence)

I’ve written before about the hidden job market and I know for a fact this is true in Lawrence, KS: the best jobs often aren’t listed anywhere. Often times you need to search directly and when possible, create a job for yourself.

This recent blog post analyzing a study from payroll firm ADP shows that small business is where it’s at! Local, small businesses invest in the community and are members of it. I’ve included stats about the importance of small and locally owned businesses to the Lawrence economy here in relation to City Comission’s focus on bringing in jobs rather than growing them locally. The stats from ADP reinforce this concept.

If you are looking for a job, check out various blog posts I’ve written on hiring, resumes, and using social media. One new tip I’ll add to that list is some great examples of LinkedIn Profiles. The key to LinkedIn as I’ve mentioned in the past http://www.calldrdave.com/wp/2011/06/using-linkedin-to-get-a-job-lessons-from-the-kcitp-career-fair/ is to work on a quality profile before you actually need to look for a job – but of course if you are looking for one you want to make sure it’s aboslutely stunning.

Speaking of hiring, remember that we are always on the lookout for quality technicians to join our computer repair team not just in Lawrence, KS but in Topeka and the KC Metro as well. Spread the word.
