  Why Trying for Less Will Get You More
by Louise Fletcher - Aug, 2010
Can narrowing down your job search focus actually get you more interviews than trying for a wide range of jobs? That’s been my experience.

A new survey explains why. Jobvite surveyed 600 HR and recruiting professionals across the US and found that 73% are using social media and online networks for recruitment purposes. Of those companies, 78% cited LinkedIn as a tool they used regular...

That’s the advice of former Minnesota Viking Fran Tarkenton, who suggests you try to find the fun in every task: “If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right,” he says. Wouldn’t it be nice if you were as motivated to write your resume tomorrow as you were to play Little League or skip...
 
  Are You Headed Toward or Away?
by Christine Hassler - Aug, 2010
Our motivation is directional, impacting the results we create and the ease in which we create them. Think about when you are motivated to do something. Are you motivated more by what you want to get away from or what you want to move toward? TOWARD motivation moves us toward more of what we desire while AWAY from motivation is an attempt to get us away from circumstances/feelings that are causing discomfort. Let's consider...

  3 New Job Search Ideas for 50 Cents
by Kevin Donlin - Aug, 2010
I’ve written before that you can learn more about finding a job by emulating marketing experts than by reading every employment book in the library. And I still believe that’s true.
