Research, Research and Research before a Job Interview

  • The person with the best information wins. Research every company, industry, field, and location you're interested in. Be the resident expert.





Classified Ads: Exactly Where the Jobs Aren't

Classified ads account for only about 5 percent of job openings, so don't spend all of your time answering ads.




All That You Must Know About Headhunters

Headhunters are paid matchmakers. They make money putting companies and candidates together. But never forget who they work for. (Not you. They're paid by the employer.)




Networking — People Power

Job search myth number 1: Networking is asking people for a job. Wrong. Networking is asking others for advice. Asking for a job makes people feel uncomfortable. Asking for help makes people feel valued.




Interview Preparation — Do It the Right Way!

Interviewing is 90 percent preparation and 10 percent application. So prepare and you'll feel more relaxed, confident, and on top of things during the interview.




Fear of interviewing? Know These Secrets

An interview is a dialogue between two people. What you give is what you get. So be proactive. Ask questions and initiate discussion.




Negotiating Your Salary Package

You don't have to accept the first salary offer. You can negotiate.




Resumes That Sell

A resume won't get you a job. But a resume will get you an interview, so sweat it a little, knowing you can always revise it if you need to.




The Purpose of a Good Resume and Its Formats

Think of your resume package as a sales document that illustrates your skills and experience. It should be written clearly and concisely, outlining the pertinent information that illustrates your qualifications for the position.




Types of Resume Readers

A good resume acts like a good advertisement, enticing the reader to learn more about you through personal contact. It should include only the facts and features - the selling points - that are relevant to the readers interests and needs.
