The basics of the new job search......

Amy Hoover from the TalentZoo, lays out the fundamentals you will need in order to get the job search going, Job Search 101.

I would also add, that networking is still your best resource for finding work, reach out to everyone and anyone you think can help you find a job, or recommend you to someone who can help you find a job - do NOT be shy. Pursue informational interviews, promise to keep them brief - 15 minutes on the phone, people who actually have jobs are very busy these days often wearing "multiple hats", but if you can score one of these, be well prepared with questions and ask for insights, and finally, don't forget to follow-up.

Amy Hoover is considered an industry expert in employment practices and trends. She can be reached at,, and wants you to friend her on Facebook, too.
