MODULE 2 : TARGET MARKET

Building from a basis of self-understanding, this module helps you identify your target market - where to focus your search efforts and how to make the most of the channels of communication available to you - equipping you with everything you need to target your job search effectively. This is essentially the group of employers at which you should be directing and aiming to provide your talents or services. The job seeker will produce a set of advertising or promotional materials (usually in the form of a CV) that they will disseminate to those employers that may be interested in their talents or services. Get this match right and you will hit the bullseye. The reason it is done because it makes your job searching more efficient, targets the portion of the job market where you're more likely to get hired, and provides a better fit and happier employer which increases the probability of you getting the job.
