When I hear the woes of people in the job search, there are a couple of resounding themes. For many the job search is overwhelming, and they don’t know where to start.
Others have started, but they are “sending out resumes/applications and not hearing anything back.”
What they often don’t realize is that their job search strategies suck. Typically, they aren’t well researched, planned, or executed. That ends in frustration and despair.
To get your job search on track and rolling, check to see if you have these problems, and if you do, take action to change it up.

If there’s one thing job seekers should know about this job market, it’s that specificity is your best friend. This is not a market that welcomes mass-produced resumes, cover letters, or voluminous online applications.
