6 Ways To Increase The Chances You'll Get Hired
By CAREEREALISM Founder, J.T. O'Donnell Recently, we recorded a webinar where I outlined the 6 things every job seeker must master to get hired in 2010. In it, participants learned:
  1. What shift in mindset must occur to ensure we can stay employed long-term.
  2. The most common trait amongst failing job seekers and why it must be eliminated for hiring managers to consider us for a position.
  3. What vital step the majority of job seekers skip, causing us to waste 100s of hours on a fruitless job search.
  4. What unique list can cut job search time down significantly.
  5. Which career tools successful job seekers are using.
  6. How smart job seekers use the ‘controlled chaos’ theory to execute an effective search.
Here's what some participants had to say on Twitter about the session:
