On the off chance that your hunt is producing lower quantities of contacts and resume entries, at that point you may need to expand your output. A pursuit of employment is somewhat of a numbers game in which you need to flood your objective market inside a generally short time allotment. Too little effort will drastically hinder your indexed results.

It is also a great idea, if you have not done so already, to update your resume, cover letter and your other personal branding outlets. Meaning your Facebook, your Twitter and your LinkedIn account.


Much success to you!
