Today's Job Search Requires A Mix Of Strategies

From South Coast Today

Job Searching is rarely easy. When the economy slows, the difficulty only increases as more people compete for fewer openings. There are many ways to approach a job search, including networking, visiting career centers, working with a recruiter, using online resources, and scanning job board ads.

It is important to be persistent in your job search. The more options that job seekers are willing to explore the better the opportunities for success. Networking is very important. Tell your family, friends and everyone else that you're looking. But don't depend on any single resource. Whether you're 18 or 80 it's a game of numbers and, like the lottery, you have to be in the game to win. Distribute your resume in as many places as you can. Network to find those unadvertised jobs.

Leave no stone unturned. You must utilize a variety of strategies including social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Linked In to connect with recruiters and companies within your industry.
