Everything You Know About a Job Search is Wrong...

...specifically, what you learned in college.  And if you've been in the workforce for a while, it's not what it was 5-10 years ago.  As I've mentioned in my post last week, everything I learned about writing my resume was necessary but not actually useful when it came to the job hunt.  



Andrew Kung, a recent college grad and a LinkedIn employee, created a fantastic SlideShare presentation on how he chose between two candidates who looked similar on paper.

The two main takeaways?  Be proactive and create an online presence.  It's not easy or instant but yields much better results.

Not a college student?  This still applies to you if you're on the hunt for a new job.

Don't waste your time submitting your job application into the black hole, stand out!
