Q: Have you read Newsweek's article on mistakes that job-seekers make? I am writing this in a state of disbelief. Until I read that article, my job search consisted of finding positions online and applying for them (the way I have always gotten a job in the past). When I read the article, which makes it clear that mine is not an effective strategy, I searched for more information and came across your website. I see that you get into this topic quite a bit. I feel completely out of the loop.... A: Yes, I have seen the article: 10 Mistakes Job-Seekers Make (article no longer available). I'm addressing only a portion of this e-mail within this space in order to point readers to the Newsweek article, which addresses the same theme that pops up here on the blog from tome to time. The definition of an effective job search is changing as the employment landscape changes, but there is a lot of hope if you equip yourself with the tools and tactics you need to be successful.
