It is a most important question.

Always start with this question… Seriously.
Describe what you would like to do and write it down.

  • List of languages and technologies that you want to use in the new job.
  • Consider other important things like minimum salary ( do research about salary depends on your experience/location and be REALISTIC about it!), maximum commute distance, work hours, perks and so on.
WHERE TO LOOK?
There are  few ways to look for a job these days:
  1. Friends (best option)
  2. Companies website (especially, your dream companies)
  3. LinkedIn is a great source for gathering information about company and possibility to find which company recruiting at the moment.
  4. Job hunting Website ( only if the job is advertised by the company but not the recruitment agency.
