« Do You Read Between the Lines? | Main | Stay Out of Your Boss’ Political Minefields »

September 12, 2008


Having just switched jobs I can tell you that being first, and second, and sixth etc. is a great way to get the job.
I found and applied for the job. Linked In connections recommended me, etc. When looking for a job it helps to get in there early and often. Keep the new company excited about you by creating new ways to interact with them without becoming a nuisance.
If the job is right for you - it will be very easy to first find the job - since you will know the major players in the industry and already have connections to them, Linked In, Facebook etc., and others in the industry will know you and your circumstances and will happily look out for you.

This is great advice! I work as a recruiter for a Staffing Agency in Boston, Hollister Staffing ( and have clients come to me all the time with concerns about their resume being read and paid attention to. I love your advice about using certain keywords, it is so accurate! I am definitely going to pass this along to some of my clients I am currently working with, I think it will really help.
Thanks for sharing it!

Mark, you are a fabulous addition to this blog. Keep em coming!
