“You can get a job without a resumé but you can’t get a job without an interview.”

Typically, job counselors teach conventional methods of searching for a job, “…check in the paper, sign up for online job boards, send out your resumé.”

Statistics show that less than 7 percent of jobs are acquired using those conventional methods.

Successful job searches rely on relationships with living persons.

Here is a great poster from Classes and Careers , things to keep in mind at your interview:

What You Wish You

 

Build your Brand

After you have done an assessment and gather objective ideas about who you really are and what you want to do with your life (like get a job), the next step is to develop a consistant look on your resume, cover letter, blogs, facebook comments, Linked-In remarks and anywhere else you share the idea that you are looking for a new job.

For now, do an internet search on “personal brand” and you will find out in detail what is being suggested for building your own brand.
