Dear Experts, During my time of unemployment, I make it a point to read volumes of expert tips to implement a successful search. One that I continue to read is working your "plan" of reaching out to hiring managers at target companies to seek out those unadvertised potential openings. How do you successfully get in touch with the hiring manager for a support role, which most likely will be intercepted by the current person in that role? I find it a tricky situation to maneuver, but know that 80% of jobs are found through these unopened positions.

Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

Whether you're new to LinkedIn or you're a seasoned user, connecting with new people can be a challenge, especially when you're not sure what to write in your LinkedIn invitation. You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
