Do NOT show negativity or disengagement. Yes. I wrote about this here: I Smell Blood!
Do NOT ignore the power of networking. Amen and YES! And, use JibberJobber to help you network better. If you have heard my story, you know that I thought I was too good to network. I learned the hard way that ignoring networking is a mistake.
Do NOT mismanage your social profile. Martin says you are “committing career suicide” if (go read the article). I don’t agree it’s career suicide, but I do think that you should pay attention to what you do (and don’t do) online.
Do NOT use an outdated resume or send the same resume for each job. Yes, but I actually didn’t have either of these problems. My resume was right for ME, but never right for the job title I was applying to. This was THE reason I didn’t get interviews.
Do NOT use one job search strategy. Agreed: I used one strategy, which was job boards. Lame, unproductive, depressing.
Thanks for the short but potent list Martin!
