Other Job Search Resources

Helpful Hints

1.  Have a game plan to focus your job search: 15 resumes sent to companies that fit in with your game plan, is more effective than sending 100 resumes in a random search!  A game plan should consist of:

 a.  The type of job you are seeking
 b.  Where you want to live

    2.  The type of company you want to work with.
    3.  Network with appropriate people. Tell everyone you know, your game plan, and solicit their suggestions/advice.
