Rethinking Your Job Search


By Graham CaulfieldLinkedIn, Twitter, and World Wide Web

  • Two of the biggest challenges most jobseekers face are rejection and overcoming their fear. Replace fear with confidence by taking action.
  • Past performance is a good indicator of future success: How have you gotten the jobs you’ve had in the past? Can you use the strategy again?
  • Research potential employers. Look at their website, Google them, and look for articles written about them.
  • Informational interviews (meetings to help you learn about an employer) are not job interviews. Don’t try to turn it into one.
  • Remember, recruiters work for the hiring company, not for you. They only get paid if they make a successful placement.
