Job hunting takes personal effort on your part

Nothing beats a smile, eye contact, and hand shake! There has been speculation that the day would come when job seekers would sit at their computers, unshaven or hair in rollers, expecting to get hired before getting dressed. It doesn't, and won't happen, without effort on your part.

The Internet is a great resource for information, research and applying for job vacancies. The Internet has become an integral part of the job hunting process. Any job hunters who fail to access the information, contacts, job listings, assessment tests and research opportunities that the Internet has to offer are putting themselves at a serious disadvantage.

It's also important to note that most large employers refer all requests for references to their human resource department. So if you are feeling cautious about listing a previous supervisor, simply refer prospective employers to the director of human resources. You should list previous co-workers whom you know will give you positive feedback. It will be best for you and your previous employer to present the facts accurately, and without prejudice.
