There are many ideas on how to conduct a successful job search. And every strategy and technique is helpful to someone. There is no one best method for everyone. The job search is an individual thing. What works for one doesn’t work for another. I see the proof with each client I work with.
Different industries, companies and hiring managers influence the job search requirements. It is necessary for each job searcher needs a tool box full of strategies and techniques and know how and when each is used.
The tools and techniques go beyond the resume, cover letter and interview. There are other tools that as well. Tools that are used in other aspects of life, unlike the resume, cover letter and interview. They are mind, body and spirit. Used in conjunction with the traditional job search methods yield success.
