Forget the Unemployment Rate: Three Numbers That Matter in Job SearchHuffington PostExcluding numbers on a resume is one of the most common and most damning job search mistakes.


Interesting take on meaningful numbers in a job search. I don't know if I agree with the first one - but the next two: meaningful quantifiable accomplishments and leveraging your connections are spot on.

Career Upshift » Gold medal job search

Career Upshift » Gold medal job search | Effective Executive Job Search | Scoop.it
It is quite the achievement to make it through the resume evaluation phase of the job search process, a phone interview and any number of in-person interviews. With only one open position to be handed out, many perfectly ...


Interesting analogy comparing job search and interviewing to Olympic competition. I agree that you don't call someone who fails at job search or interviewing a loser.


The problem is a little different. Those who continually miss the mark on getting interviews and don't get asked back or offered jobs frequently DO NOT have the skills and knowledge to compete effectively in today's job market.


The vast majority of candidates -whether it be at the entry level or executive level still rely on old, tired, tribal, and traditional methods of sending out resumes and answering ads on job boards.


This is a worthless approach to job hunting. Sometimes you get lucky and find something. The better opportunities go to those who are leveraging on-line and off-line networking. Unfortunately, most job seekers have not learned and applied how to network - thus they fall back on 1970s methods of finding a job - sending resumes and answering ads. No wonder the average time it takes to find a job has risen so fast.

HR Magazine - Employee engagement invariably leads to higher performance – true or false?

HR Magazine - Employee engagement invariably leads to higher performance – true or false? | Effective Executive Job Search | Scoop.it

When I train managers from different kinds of organisations in leadership and management, I’m astonished to find out how many companies don’t actively manage performance.


This is both the greatest mistake in hiring and in retention. A lack of effective performance management leads to numerous hiring mistakes and the inability to retain top talent.  - Barry Deutsch

Undertaking a modern job search - Boston Globe

Undertaking a modern job searchBoston GlobeNot only have the letter and resume gone the technological route, the entire process of the job search has.


The root of the problem is that most companies rely on old, out-dated, traditional, and tribal approaches to receiving cover letters and resumes. It's a worthless exercise in futility for most companies in their search process. Layered on top of that is that most job search candidates still buy into this method of job search even though it's proven to be ineffective - sending resumes and answering ads.


How do we break this cycle of ineffective job search and companies trying to find talent so that the right candidates get matched with the right opportunities without all the drama and inefficiencies inherent in the process of finding a job.

Finding full-time work is particularly difficult for those in their 50s and older


The process of filling out employment applications and answering ads on job boards - especially for workers with issues (older, gaps in employment, lack of education, etc) in the eyes of employers - is a worthless approach to job hunting. If you find an opportunity through this traditional and tribal approach to job hunting it will be random luck.


Leveraging social networking sites like LinkedIn and classic networking/job referrals is a more effective job hunting strategy. The problem for many seeking a job in this economy is that they lack the skills and knowledge to use this more effective approach to job hunting.
