Job seekers  unwittingly make mistakes. You may not know you are making these five mistakes and it is my job to call them out and explain why they are so damaging to your job search.

5. Ignoring the power of social media.

4. Only searching for jobs posted online.

3. Showing up unprepared.

2. Bad-mouthing your situation, boss, or employer.
