The Best Job Search Advice

Huffington Post

Even in normal economic times, you need to double your efforts if you want to stand out. But the best advice is that in these times you'll need to triple them.  The more you put into something, the better it tends to work out. If you're looking for a job, you want to send out as many signals as possible that show that not only are you not afraid of hard work, but you embrace it.

The best way to signal that you're hardworking is to explain your routine and method for working explicitly to the employer.  It is important how you convey this without including every detail and losing attention.

The bottom line is that Employers are going to hire the hardest-working people and lay off the clock punchers first.  Companies need to be lean and mean to survive these economic times. If you want to get employed, your best strategy is to put yourself into the hardest-working bucket. Given a climate where no one is able to look ahead and everyone is reacting, such a point of view would stand head and shoulders above the competition.
