4 things we have discovered most job seekers are not paying attention to in job search:
Your next job most likely will not come from a job board. It will come from a conversation thru your network.
If you are on LinkedIn you must have a Profile Picture and a fairly decent LinkedIn Profile.
Stop trying to get that old job back. Look at new roles in different industries. You can do it & it may be more rewarding.
Social Media can be your friend or your biggest enemy - Use LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, etc better than every other job seeker.
