Need a better resume?
Job Hunters often think that writing a resume is the first step in job hunting. But you'll actually write a better resume if you take a systematic approach to your search and create a Project Plan before you start writing.
Want to get better at networking for a job?
Many job hunters are concerned that they don't know the right people or that their network is too small. But it's always possible to start with people you know and get introductions to the people you want to meet - if you know how to plan your networking and know what to say. Highly Effective Networking in a job search is different from other networking, but anyone can learn how to do it.
