Job seekers have a lot of questions. So this week’s summary dishes out job search answers!
When you embark on a job search, there’s a huge learning curve. There’s so much you don’t know (and even more that you don’t know you don’t know!)
When I started writing about job search, that was my sole purpose – to fill the gaps in knowledge and answer job seeker questions.
This “lack of knowledge” about job search is still a problem today. There are thousands, if not millions, of resume writers, recruiters and job search coaches sharing their tips and services. All that info can be overwhelming.
That’s why I started Summary Sunday and this is issue #427.
Every week, almost without exception, I round up timely and popular job search topics. 427 summaries have been published since I started.
This week’s summary includes answers to your questions about:
- Salary information in posts
- The good and bad about LinkedIn’s new Cover Story
- Launching an undercover job search on LinkedIn
- Negotiating a lowball job offer
- Questions to ask to learn about company culture
- A new career option – Chief of Remote
- Post-Pandemic Career Opportunities
- Side Hustles for Retirees
I hope this week’s summary delivers job search answers to those questions you had and even questions you didn’t know you had.
