Electronic Tools for Job Search. Lead, follow, or get out of the way
Filed under: Position Searching, Public Relations docs, Networking, Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 12:37 pm

Here is a “mini-, online- workshop” on Electronic
tools for your job search.  Of course, you can go
to a far off place, pay admission, hotel, travel and
related expenses to attend a workshop.  But, eh,
for electronic tools, should this be the way…right?…

Let’s give it a whirl.  And, oh, by the way, if any others
out there have good ideas to share, please send them…

Couldn’t help but notice some MEGA USEFUL guidelines:

Create Electronic versions of your resume [or CV]  1   2 
              Remember to test the file out

Post Public relations documents “in-the cloud”
              List of Papers, Presentations, Patents
              List of Projects (if appropriate)
              Patent or Technology summary (if appropriate)
              Research summary
              Management philosophy (if appropriate)
                                                                 3 
                                             
Look at General listings of web-sites (for Texas, make specific
   for regions you are interested.  This site points to
   many.)                                                    4
   Stanford                                                 7
             
Use LinkedIn.com (search this blog for specific entries)
   more extensively
                                                                  5
                                                                  8

Networking                                               6

    Some good suggestions for using LinkedIn.com were
    offered by K. Madden

     - move your introductions and Internet interactions
    off-line, on personal email accounts.

      - make your initial impressions very professional and
    first-class

      - explore your target firms or industries, looking for
    hiring managers, common backgrounds for people
    that work there (look for similarities with your own)
