3 Common Job Search Strategies That Don’t Work
As a certified career coach, I can recommend many job search strategies that will complement your resume and increase your chances for finding that perfect job. But the following strategies won’t work:
1. Re-sending the same resume over and over to the same company, expecting different results.
What to Do Instead: You can reapply to the same company. But it would pay to have a professional review your resume and cover letter to make sure you are clearly stating why you are a great fit for that company.
2. Using resume creation software.
What to Do Instead: Send out a professionally written resume that reflects you, your achievements, skills, and attitudes and that is targeted for the job you want.
