Are You Conducting a Smart Job Search?


If you’re looking for work, you know that the tough economy is making it very hard to get the attention of recruiters and hiring managers. More often that not, it feels as though your carefully crafted resume and cover letter just went into a black hole. You rarely even get a response – even when you are a perfect match for the qualifications requested in the ad.

You are not the problem!

If you’re like most people, this makes looking for a new job an incredibly frustrating experience. You know you will add great value to your next employer, but you can’t get anyone to give you a chance. If this goes on long enough, it can become incredibly demoralizing and you may even start to question your own abilities.

But please don’t do that. You are not the problem. The fact is that the rules of job search have changed. Companies simply do not hire in the same way they used to and if you don’t understand the changes, you can make innocent mistakes that cost you opportunities.

Announcing “The Smart Job Search”

Starting in just a few days, I’ll be writing a series of posts to help you learn the new rules of job search. I’m calling the series ‘The Smart Job Search’ and I hope you’ll join me so that you can learn the new rules of employment, and how to make them work for you.

There’s no magic and no hype to this program. It’s a straightforward, easy-to-implement, and completely common sense program that gets results, and I’m excited to start sharing it with you.
