A new survey came out just in time for Halloween – and it's scaring a lot of long-term job seekers. If you've been looking for work and feel like you've been "blacklisted" by employers – you could be right. Forty-three percent of recruiters say they would consider blacklisting candidates who apply for jobs they aren't qualified for. They do so by suppressing your name in future talent searches.

Are You Guilty? If So, You Need a New Gameplan

I've worked with a lot of job seekers, especially, the long-term unemployed. One job search mistake I see them make is failing to properly strategize. In short, they are doing a lot of activities they think they should be doing, when in reality, their approach is ineffective and producing zero results. The worst part is that the longer they fail at looking for work, the harder getting hired becomes. Check out this infographic, and then join me to design your blueprint for success.
