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:
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.
