Job Search Skills. Continuous Improvement
Filed under: Position Searching
Posted by: site admin @ 10:02 am

Just encountered a nice job hunt improvement article
by Penelope Trunk
Reiterating several of her points:

SEARCHING
- small per cent of jobs (~10) filled via big boards
- social networking is catching on (likely to vary
from field to field)

RESUMES
- EXPERIENCE section:  use your accomplishments,
not responsibilities (except certain management
positions)
- place most signficant things related to how you
match the position’s needs on first page.

INTERVIEWS
- practice for the interview, organize your thinking
and presentation skills, prepare for even minor
details
- seek assistance, bounce ideas off mentors,
help others in their quest
