The old “might-as-well-apply-because-you-never-know” approach doesn’t work. A successful job search follows a strategy - not blind optimism.
On more than a few occasions over the years, I’ve heard people who masquerade as career coaches and employment experts telling people that job hunting is a numbers game.
In a way, it’s a lot like the Lotto myth: People believe their odds of winning decrease as more people play.
The odds of picking the winning number are absolutely independent of the number of people who play. What decreases are your odds of being the only winner. That’s basic statistics.
The job search, on the other hand, is about strategy, not statistics.
There is no question that a recession and weak employment market have an impact on hiring. That’s absolutely true. But a dramatic increase in the number of competitors in the marketplace does not suddenly make it a numbers game. If that were true, the misguided people who send thousands of resumes would be the ones getting the jobs. Or even the interviews.
But they aren’t.
Your success in the job market is not a function of how many resumes you send but rather how much time and effort you spend understanding the needs of a potential employer and tailoring your experience to demonstrate your potential.
This takes time. More time than most job hunters are willing to spend.
Why your job search should be graded
I’ve always believed that if resumes were somehow graded and ranked for their relevance, people would put a lot more thought into them. They would also probably invest time, money and energy on Kaplan-like courses in hopes that a higher score would land them a better job.
But that’s not what happens.
Instead, many people spend as little time as possible on the resume, send them out and wait for a response. Sadly, they view it as a black- and-white proposition: Either they get an interview or they don’t.
But there is a world of difference between just missing the cut and never coming close. The thing is, most people have no idea where they fall on that continuum.
It’s only when people discover where they fall in this range that they can take the necessary steps to correct the issues. That requires an outside perspective; it is too easy for people to connect the dots in their own heads without realizing that potential employers aren’t making the same connection.
For example, I remember a client named Tim who told me his biggest challenge was the fact that he had applied for a job that was “tailor-made” for him. He was frustrated because he couldn’t get the company to call him back.
After reading the job description, I reviewed Tim’s cover letter and resume. My first thought was:
“I wouldn’t have called you, either. I don’t see the connection.”
But I didn’t say that. Instead, we spent the next few hours going through all the primary requirements. In each case, I asked him to share experiences and accomplishments that would give people a reason to believe he could excel in that area. Through this process, it began to make sense why the position was a great next step for him. Armed with this new information, we customized his cover letter and resume and re-contacted the company.
The hiring manager called him within 10 minutes of receiving his revised paperwork. Incidentally, this was the same person who hadn’t returned Tim’s calls over the previous three weeks. That’s the power of a more strategic approach.

These job hunting tips from leading career experts and top executives at leading job sites will help you focus your job hunt, get to contacts at companies, learn how to effectively follow up, get a promotion to a new job, and utilize the top job search strategies that will ensure your job hunt succeeds.
The Best Job Hunting Tips
Ask After Lunch
When I was a kid, my father often told me that you should wait until right after lunch if you were interviewing for a job, asking someone for a favor or otherwise concerned about having someone’s rapt attention. By contrast, he warned me, doing any of these things right before lunch was very bad strategy. Reason: when people are hungry, they are bound to be impatient and cranky; after they are fed, they are likely to be content and generous. Something to remember in marketing yourself.
Once again, it seems that my father indeed knew best. A recent academic study of petitions for parole indicates that, controlling for all other factors, the sooner after a meal that a case came up before the judges, the more likely the judges were to grant the petition. (“The science of justice: I think it’s time we broke for lunch…” in The Economist, 4/16/2011; “Court rulings depend partly on when the judge last had a snack,” was the accompanying blurb.)

Don’t Believe You Cannot Negotiate Compensation
It is a mistake to believe that you cannot negotiate compensation when you receive a job offer, despite the overall weak job market. Organizations may decide not to fill a position because of the business climate, but once they decide to fill a position, they usually want the best candidate and are willing to pay them what they need to in order to get them to accept and feel good about the offer. That means once an organization decides that you are the person they want to hire, you are in a relatively strong position to negotiate compensation. Companies rarely include everything they have in their initial offer because they want to retain some flexibility to negotiate with the candidate. Offers almost never are withdrawn because you seek more as long as you ask in the right way (i.e. no ultimatums or threats.) Even if you are unemployed you can negotiate compensation if you know how. simply put, if you don’t ask you are likely to be leaving money on the table,
Lee E. Miller, co-author of A Woman’s Guide to Successful Negotiating
It is critical that job seekers maintain a proactive and positive approach to the job search process by establishing concrete goals and setting aside adequate time each week for searching and applying to jobs. Job searching can be an exhausting experience, even more so than a full-time job, and when responses from employers don’t immediately come flooding in the natural tendency is to often become discouraged and slow down or even abort the job search process altogether.

Working on your resume
I’ve often said: “Show your resume to 10 people and you will get 10 different, and often conflicting opinions!”
A ‘good’ resume is very subjective to the reader. Everyone has preferences as to what’s appropriate and what’s not. There is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ resume and it should always be a work in progress… tweaking, tuning, and tailoring it to each position you apply to and for each circumstance. It’s a good idea to have multiple ‘generic’ versions so that you have appropriate ones for different situations.
Everyone has opinions about resumes and I’m no exception. I believe there are some good best practices in today’s job market that benefit anyone. However, I’m certainly willing to concede that other conflicting ideas may at times be valid as well.
One discussion that arises often is regarding an appropriate length of a resume… always one page? Two pages? Are 3, 5, or more pages ever appropriate? I believe there’s a definitive answer to that question: “It depends!”
Different situations can call for different resumes. In my opinion, the length of the resume can vary depending on where and how you use it:
One page: For someone with less than 5 years of professional work experience, I believe a 1 page resume is always appropriate. With only a few years of background to document, it’s likely to appear you’re adding fluff to stretch it out beyond 1 page. For someone with a relatively short work history, a 1 page resume can be used in any situation.
Regardless of the amount of experience you have, if you are meeting a networking contact, or sharing a resume with an acquaintance, a 1 page resume is easiest for them to get a sense of your background without having to dig too deep into a multi-page document. It can be thought of more as a marketing document. Pick the important information to share and choose your words carefully.
For someone with 15 or more years of experience, often a 1 page resume can appear too light. Although brevity can be a virtue, you don’t want to give your experience too little exposure either.
Two pages: When presenting a resume to apply for any direct-hire (as opposed to consulting or contract) position, it is virtually never a good idea to present more than 2 pages. In the vast majority of cases, someone will only scan your resume for less than a minute to make a determination about you. In that period of time they will not read past 2 pages. No matter how carefully you’ve chosen your words on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th pages, they will have no impact if they don’t get read. Even if they are willing to spend time to read more detail, your resume will have greater impact by expressing your experience effectively in fewer words. if you can’t express your experience effectively in 2 pages, it’s not likely you will be able to do it well in 5 pages either.

Speed up your job search
With the current average job search lasting somewhere around 36 weeks many people ask me what they can do to speed up the process. My advice to them is this: Ask, Listen and Act!
What does this mean and why will it speed up a job search?
Well from my vantage point as a resume writer and career coach and from what I have confirmed from my peers in the field, the majority of job seekers at all levels, from new graduate to CEO, do not seek professional advice at the onset of their job search; most usually wait 4-to 10 weeks before they look for professional help.
Some follow the old conventional methods that worked for them in the past but no longer yield results. Some read blogs and articles and books and follow every other free means of impersonal one-way communication, while the vast majority conduct their job search based on friendly advice from people they know who offer more conjecture than factual knowledge or just conduct their job search through the process of trial and error, which in most cases yields more error than success,
So if you would like to shorten the length of your job search here is what you need to do.
ASK: The first step is to seek out a professional who knows what he or she is talking about from day one and not a month or more into the process. Find someone with good references who you can ask questions to and who will offer you solid advice on your marketing documents, on networking, how YOU should be conducting a job search.

And mind your manners
I received an email today from someone that reached out to me a couple of months ago as a networking contact in his job search. His email was to let me know he had just accepted a new job offer, he told me about the job and the company, and thanked me for the connection we made several weeks ago. I really don’t think I was much help to him because I’m not very familiar with his field and industry and I wasn’t able to provide any direct referrals. I only gave him some ideas of where he may be able to find some additional contacts. His note was very gracious and I was glad to get the update.
What was most striking to me about the note, however, is that it made me realize how few of them I get.
I help lead a job networking group and teach an 8-week class on effective job search strategies. I get a number of calls and emails from people looking for help and referrals in their search, and I’m glad to help as much as I can. I always tell people to keep me posted and stay in touch, and I often hear back from them while they are still in the search and looking for more help. It’s quite rare, however, for me to hear from them after they land in a new job.
While it’s understandable that they get caught up in planning to start the new position and the ‘need’ for networking doesn’t seem pressing any longer, they forget a couple of key points…
· Jobs don’t last forever. It may be a nice thought that this job will be the last one you will ever have to look for, the reality is that the average job these days lasts for less than 5 years, and that length drops all the time. You will likely need to look for a job again, multiple times in your career, and having a warm and receptive network makes each job search easier. In order to keep the network warm, keep in mind that…
· No one likes being called on only when they’re needed. When someone hears nothing from you except for when you’re looking for more referrals, it diminishes their willingness to provide more help. A worthwhile network benefits both parties and is characterized by common courtesy.
Nurturing a network is the same as nurturing friendships…and ideally networking contacts become friends.
· Let them know when you land and thank them again. It sets you apart from most others that don’t do the same, and it’s another chance to build a long-term relationship.

Social media can be your best friend or your worst enemy
You know that unsettling feeling when you think someone is behind you? You feel vulnerable, anxious, not adequately protected. Recently, I have noticed a steady increase in these feelings. However, these relate to an unsettling feeling where I feel something is walking in front me — my digital foot-premonition. In social media, the term digital footprint constitutes the size of an individual’s online presence and also relates directly to the number of individuals with whom they interact. More and more, I fear that what begins as my digital footprint is evolving into my digital foot-premonition.
The evidence that you leave in the digital world will not be washed away by the tide. Instead your digital activity will join the ebb and flow of the algorithmic patterns in the digital sea. Most importantly, a digital premonition has the ability to meet potential colleagues, employers and employees before you do. While the public sharing of personal information via social media channels is becoming a societal norm, filtering your information into separate social media channels for your private and professional life could secure your digital fate.
Social media is the relentless, rapidly growing realm of social communication carrying the world into the “next web”. Most interesting is the unprecedented quality of social media where societalcommunication and interaction have to adapt and metamorphose to the advances in social media, rather than society controlling the advances in social media. And as social media carries us into the future, we need to realize that privacy is becoming a thing of the past. For total damage control, one should regard all social
communication as public by default. We have all heard the horror stories where prospective employees have been turned away due to the discovery of photographs from wild parties, controversial comments or objectionable conversations on social media channels. However, if you make a conscious decision to divide your digital footprint into private and public matter you can prevent your online social life from
hurting your career. Using social media as a tool for self-promotion requires commitment and a strategy. To be taken seriously in the digital realm or at the very least to allow you to stand out amongst your peers, you need to make some important considerations. Implement social media for professional purposes, understand what your goals are, and then actively take control of your digital foot-premonition.
If you want to advance your career, social media can be your best friend or your worst enemy. To avoid the latter, here’s what you need to do:
1. Build Solid Foundations
Understand that social media can be used for more than personal reasons. If you are already engaged in social media that is fantastic and there is no need to close any accounts or build a new online persona. Instead, decide which social media platforms could be used for professional purposes and which could be used for private purposes. Take a look at the various social media platforms available and see what stands out to you. Why not try one for size; create an account investigate potential contacts and if you don’t like it close the account (warning: remember to close the account or remove it from the public eye! Overlooking its removal could lead to a negative digital foot-premonition). Then decide which social media platforms will be used for professional purposes and which will be used for private purposes. For example you could use Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn for professional activity and Facebook and Pinterest for personal activity, or vice versa.
2. Build a digital network
In relation to your career, social media is about who you know rather than what you know. If you put time and effort into building and sustaining contacts you can build a strong social-professional digital network. If you know the company you wish to work for, put yourself in their shoes and think about how they could find you. Build your profile accordingly. Also, think about who you need to know to get you there and can any of your contacts lead you in the right direction.
3. Enagage with your digital network
In it’s simplest form, social media is a conversation. When you post information, people can like, comment on, forward your thoughts, follow you, retweet or repin your digital activity. Not only can you put your own opinions or work out there but if you are open to a two-way dialogue and accept other people’s point of view, you can learn a lot. Becoming part of an online community is a great way to identify and follow trends in your areas of interest. You can also turn to your network with specific questions about your field or even a job search.
4. Judge your book by it’s cover
This may be a difficult exercise but the reward will be worth the effort. Put yourself
in another’s shoes and take a long objective look at your social media profiles. Then ask yourself — “What is this person all about?” ”What do you like about this person?” “What do you dislike about this person?” “Could you work with this person?” Be honest when answering and make amendments to your digital profiles accordingly.
5. Define your goals
Remember when implementing a self-promoting social media strategy, you are embarking on a journey. A journey to facilitate career advancement and professional fulfillment. Unless you know exactly what you want from social media, trial and error is the best method for discovering your best professional profile on social media platforms; set realistic goals, revise and amend your goals regularly.
6. Think of yourself as a brand
The best way to overcome the self-branding fear is to have some fun when creating your brand. Allow people to get a sense of what you’re about via your social media activity. Contribute to discussions you find interesting or are related to your industry. The more you comment on or write about a certain area, the more likely you’ll be affiliated with the subject.
7. Indulge in the digital
Today every company is affected by digital trends and emerging technologies. Employers are increasingly looking for this competency in potential employees. From airlines to health organizations to PR agencies, companies are hiring people to create and maintain their corporate brand digital footprint. New career paths are emerging; Social Media Marketer, Digital Media Manager, Mobile Manager, Learning Technologies Specialist and Social Games Strategist are just a few sample digital job titles.
8. Become a trendspotter
By consistently engaging with the digital marketplace you can gain literacy in social media platforms and strategies. Move your attention away from the latest attention-grabbing technique and develop a deeper understanding of how these social networks are formed and how people interact with them. Ultimately, to be successful in social media, it is more important to understand why people are on social networks and how they are interacting with each other rather than simply looking at “what” people are doing on social networks.

Tips on Getting It Together
Last week I woke up late. I fell out of bed and ran outside to hail a cab in the pouring rain. I was the girl running through puddles while stuffing phone, wallet, and breakfast into her purse. I put my makeup on in the back of a cab because that was my Monday. Those are the days I stop and say to myself, “Girl, you need to get it together.”
Most people have a vision of what it looks like to have their business in order, because everyone knows at least one of “that girl.” The girl who strolls into work early. The girl who has a smile on her face. That girl who knows what’s going on in the world. I’m a big proponent of the mantra “Fake it ‘till you make it.” I recently heard a different version that, while it doesn’t have the same ring, probably sums it up better: Fake it ‘till you become it. Getting it together probably won’t happen overnight (please, I know myself better than that), but you can take baby steps toward it every day while avoiding putting contacts in while sitting in the back of a cab.
Wake up early
I think people who exercise in the morning are magical gods and goddesses who possess powers beyond my wildest dreams. Your bed is calling, and sticking two toes out into the world from under the warmth of your sheets feels like a nightmare. But going for a run or doing living room yoga, taking a relaxing shower, and making breakfast before heading out to greet the day is the equivalent to drinking a gallon of coffee when it comes to happiness and productivity. So get up when the birds do – you will thank yourself.
Quick Tip: Waking up in the middle of a pleasant REM cycle can make an early morning feel like torture. Sleep Time, an app available on the iPhone, is an alarm clock that monitors your sleep cycles and wakes you up at just the right time, leaving you much more refreshed, even on the earliest of days.
Read anything you can get your hands on
Blogs, LinkedIn articles, newspapers, anything. Head to your RSS feed over breakfast because it’s good for your brain. Also, it will get you well-acquainted with good writing on a daily basis and will allow you to identify thought leaders within your space. Blogs aren’t just for 2am Ben and Jerry’s-fueled venting sessions anymore. Professionals use them to share career advice and analysis of industry events.
Quick Tip: Bloglines is a super easy-to-use news aggregator. Follow industry blogs, career blogs, and blogs just for the sake of blogs. My favorites are Your Coffee Break, Career Goddess, Secrets of the Job Hunt, and Joy the Baker.
Follow current events
You don’t have to pore through every article of the Times, but if someone in the break room mentions the headline of the day, you should probably what they’re talking about. I’m talking to you, Mr. or Ms. What-Even-Is-Syria. Be a conscious citizen of the world and figure out what’s going on in Turkey because that is important.
Quick Tip: The Daily Skimm is a current events newsletter that delivers the most up-to-date news right to your inbox every Monday through Friday. Check it on your commute to work or right when you get in the office for a quick five-minute update on what the rest of the world is up to.
Participate in the conversation
Twitter is an excellent tool for thought leadership. Share an interesting article you read earlier in the day (see what I did there?) and with a click of the Tweet button you have immediately connected with hundreds or thousands of people with similar interests. If you are interested in social media, Tweet a link to a recent study about SEO. If you are interested in social enterprise, post about what Warby Parker is up to. Don’t be shy – Twitter is all about the conversation.

While ageism can work in your favor, it can also work against you, especially if your attitude confirms the Gen Y negative stereotypes.
If you’re a recent college graduate, take a look at this attitude adjustment checklist so you don’t make a big mistake that could hold you back-or even get you fired.
1. The boss and customer is always right, even when they’re wrong
You’re paid to show up on time, perform a service and generally be pleasant. If something you don’t like happens in the workplace, you’re entitled to your opinion and to discuss it with your supervisor in a one-on-one meeting and have it resolved.
But you’re not entitled to cop an attitude, shoot out passive-aggressive tweets and emails about it or stop working hard to “show everyone.”
Stay classy at all times. Even when someone is screamingly, grossly or inappropriately wrong. Just stay classy. Do what you can, leave the room and follow up with your supervisor for an appropriate course of action.
2. The place for personal technology is not your desk
Cell phones and personal technology items are everywhere. Even if you have a lax office environment, you don’t have a free license to text, tweet and SnapChat through your day’s work. (Unless you work as the social media expert at Zappos or Hootsuite, of course.)
Appropriate access means checking your phone for important messages every few hours or having your phone in your pocket (without your hands on it). Carrying on active conversations or missing deadlines due to smartphone hijinks means you’re in for an uncomfortable conversation.
3. You’re not the universe’s gift to your employer
If you believe your workplace is lucky to have you, you may be in need of an attitude adjustment. Employment is a pleasant arrangement of partnership between two benefiting parties, and if you do it right, you can get a lot out of it.
Your employer makes an income based on your work (translation: even if you’re amazing at what you do, you can be replaced), and you make a reliable income from your employer (translation: even if the job is awesome, you can find a new one).
Luck or emotional attachment shouldn’t factor into this situation. To think you’re gracing the workplace with your presence—and therefore it’s okay to take a long lunch, show up late frequently or cop an attitude about common practices—means you may not be adjusting well.
4. Work isn’t an “if I show up, I’m good” proposition
When you show up to work, it shouldn’t be obvious you stayed up til 3:00 a.m drinking with friends or driving back from the nearest large city. Sliding into your desk on time at 9:00 a.m., hung over and barely groomed, doesn’t cut it in a professional workplace.
If you’re receiving a regular paycheck, eat regular meals and sleep regular hours—at least during the workweek—so you can bring your A-game at all times.

“I’m not a morning person.” We’re all guilty of using this excuse on those ever-repetitive and difficult workday mornings, but with a few simple changes to your routine, you can make those early mornings a bit less painful.
Here are 10 ways to start your workday off right:
Don’t press snooze. Period.
It’s easy to hit the “snooze” button when your alarm rings you to reality on those cold, dark mornings, but don’t do it! Ever. Refusing to press snooze will give you those extra couple of minutes you need in the morning and will save you from being rushed and hectic when you get to work.
Eat a healthy, balanced breakfast
It’s the most important meal of the day! Do yourself (and your colleagues) a favor by eating a balanced breakfast (and no, 4 cups of coffee doesn’t count). It will keep you from being the cranky pants everyone avoids in the morning, and will give you the energy you need to stay focused and happy throughout your workday.
Take time to relax
Have a cup of coffee (or tea) on the porch. Take a bath. Read a chapter of your new favorite book. Whatever makes you happy, do it in the morning. Your workdays can run you ragged, so taking time to sit and relax will physically and mentally prepare your body and mind for the rest of your day.
Make a to-do list
Making a to-do list first thing in the morning will guarantee that you don’t forget to do any task throughout your day, no matter how small. It will also allow you to keep track of what you’ve accomplished, and give you the satisfaction of being able to check off items.
Name one task on that to-do list that absolutely needs to be done within the first hour or two of your workday. Our brains work best in the morning, so use that time to do your most important or toughest undertaking. Checking off that big task at the beginning of the day will make you feel accomplished and will save you the stress later.
Get to work early
This will give you a chance to settle in and get started with as few interruptions as possible. Plus, leaving for work early means less traffic and a shorter commute.
Don’t check your email first thing in the morning
Unless it’s urgent, don’t open it! Spending your morning going through emails is a major waste of time. Read the important ones, and save the rest for later on in the day when your deadlines have passed and your priority projects are completed.
Make important calls and send urgent emails ASAP
Get in touch with someone as soon as you get to the office to ensure that they have a full workday to respond. That way, you won’t have to stress at the end of the day when you don’t have access to the information you needed.

“Success is often the result of taking a misstep in the right direction.” - Al Bernstein
Serendipity is often the master of our career path, but wouldn’t it be wiser to do some planning and put in some effort to attain our goals? If our goals are attainable, we should be able to map our ascent toward that goal. If our career is our goal in focus, let’s discuss how we can map our career path and attain our career goals in a meaningful way.
Your career path can be harnessed and managed. Seldom do people rise to successful positions who have not thought about how they will get there during their ascent. Our careers can be thought of as a series of steps toward an end goal. Yes, it will likely be a long-term goal, but a goal nonetheless. Where is it that you would like to rise to? What is your long-term vision for your career?
To begin mapping your career path you need to start by writing out where you are right now and where it is that you would like to get to. If you are early in your career, the possibilities for how you get from where you are now to where you want to be may seem daunting, but don’t fret. With planning you can achieve your career success.
From where you are right now, what is the next step to move forward toward your career goal? Each step will fall into one of these categories: new skill/knowledge, new visibility/recognition, new position or new pathing.
New skill/knowledge. A new skill or new knowledge may be required for you to move forward along your career path. For some this is an education goal, maybe finishing that degree or obtaining a master’s or a doctorate. For others, this may be experiential; a skill or knowledge that can be attained through experience, possibly on the job.
Education achievements. Your education can be cultivated through your career path. During your career path mapping, you may see that to reach the next step along your desired career path you need to attain a new level of knowledge. Include your education achievements within your career pathing exercise. Start reaching toward those education achievements as early as possible along your career path, rather than learning there’s an education requirement at a point in your career when you’re lagging or burnt out. Prepare yourself for your advance.
Experiential skills and knowledge. You may find that there will be skills or experience that you must have attained to reach your next career step. It would be wise to map your career path so that you can acquire those skills along your path rather than have to backtrack or make a lateral move to acquire new skills while setting your career path out further in time.
New visibility / new recognition. To achieve some goals along your career path you may need to gain new visibility or achieve new recognition. For you, that new visibility or new recognition could come in several forms. Maybe it’s an award that you’d like to attain, become a part of a highly visible project, achieve a particular job performance level, etc. If you know what you are looking to attain along your career path you can focus your efforts around your achievements.
New position. Along our career path we will need to move into new roles and positions. Sometimes these moves can be accomplished within your current organization, other times you’ll need to look outward beyond your current organization to attain your next role. Some questions to ask yourself as you’re plotting your new roles and positions are:
• How long should I remain in the previous role?
• If I spend too little time in the position, does that negatively affect me?
• If I spend too long in the position, does that negatively affect me?
• Will I be able to remain within the same organization?
• Is there opportunity for advancement within my current organization?
• If I advance within my current organization, would it be wise to then make a lateral move to the same position within another company later?
• How long should I remain within the same organization?
• If I spend too little time within one organization, does that lower my ability to be hired by another company in the future?
• If I spend too much time within one organization, does that limit my marketability to other companies?
New pathing. Along some career paths you see jumps between what seems to be one career path and a completely different career path to move ahead. There are situations where one path may provide knowledge and skill that can enhance another career path. You may find that to move forward toward your career goals you can achieve success by making a path jump.
