  • 11. When should I be looking?
    Always.
  • 12. Where should I be looking?
    Ask yourself where the real employers are spending their time.
    Job Fairs have no jobs and they are far from fair.
    Do good and find employment.
  • 13. How should I be looking?
    Your hair stylist knows your next employer.
    Stop making judgments about who can help you.
    Stop counting connections.
    Start understanding the person who can hire you.
  • 14. Who do I target?
    Understand why the recruiter isn’t calling you back.
    Hiring managers, human resources
    and recruiters are looking for talented
    people like you at this very moment.
    How well do you understand how they search
    for and evaluate talent?
  • 15. Prioritize Key Audiences
    Then understand how they tick.
    HR
    Generalist
    Vendor
    Recruiter
    Partner
    Acquaintance

    Network
    Contact
    Co-worker
    Relative
    Friend
