There is so much to learn about job search and so little time. Everyday you ask yourself questions
"how long should I wait before I follow up?"
"should I take the time to find the hiring manager's name?"
"should I be working with a recruiter? What do they do anyway?"
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I am pretty sure you have hundreds of other questions too. You are not alone. Every job seeker has questions. Most of them are the same. In other words, there are predictable themes of questions that job seekers frequently ask. How do you get your questions answered?
- Join a job seeker networking group
- Read books and blogs
- Take part in workshops/seminars (online and in person)
More and more, coaches and experts are taking their expertise online. It is easier than ever. You just need to find them. Allow me to help.
