Search Strategies

Many people's first job search inclination is to check the want ads, send out a few resumes and make a couple of phone calls. But even in today's economy, with the lowest unemployment in recent history, it could take your sending out 100-500 resumes in order to land a single interview--not to mention securing an actual job.

But thanks to the wonders of the Internet and a burgeoning career management industry, you have many more options than yesterday's approach of poring over the "Help Wanted" section of the Sunday paper.

Networking
Friends, family, former co-workers, your step-aunt's gardener's sister… No one should be overlooked as a potential source of information about available jobs.

Classified Ads
