12 Essential Job Hunting Secrets

In the past 30 years, on more than one thousand different search projects, I must have debriefed four thousand different hiring managers and candidates. The big aha from all this: getting a job is as much art as science, with a lot of luck mixed in.

Regardless, by knowing what to do and not to do, job-seekers can better position themselves to be found more easily, assessed more accurately, and getting an offer more likely. Following is my shortlist of the required dance steps.

Increase Your Chances to Be Found
    Implement a 20/20/60 job-seeking plan.
Don’t Get Excluded When First Contacted
    Be strategic, not tactical

Make Sure You’re Accurately Assessed
     Ask job-related and forced-choice questions.

Negotiate the Job, Not the Compensation
     Find out where you stand.
