Look, it's rough out there. Not only are there fewer companies hiring fewer people, but there's way more competition for those jobs than at any time I can remember. And I've been around a long time. That's the bad news. The good news is that I've got 10 tips that will give you a leg-up on all that competition and keep you from shooting yourself in the foot.
What makes me such an expert on job searches? First, I'm not hiring or searching for a job. I've got no skin in the game and no axe to grind. So I'm objective. We're talking Zen-like perspective. Second, if you add up all the interviewing I've done over the decades - on both sides of the table - you'd get a huge number nobody would believe. I've seen it all.
One more thing. The biggest blunder you can make is thinking you've got this job-search thing wired. You don't. And I've got 10 ways to prove it.
