This is an interesting article on Mashable by Dan Schwabel which reinforces a lot of what I preach. He talks about many points I stress and then some, including:
- Having a personal connection to the company you are applying to increases your chances of getting hired;
- Using mobile applications to find local jobs;
- Developing online skills he refers to as ‘soft’ skills;
- Using social media and business sites to post your resume, and even
- Using on line ads.
