Developing a job search strategy

Developing a job search strategy
Conducting a traditional job search, which focuses on submitting your resume to specific job postings, is the least effective way to find a job. Once a job is posted, you are instantly competing with 100s of other candidates. Even the most qualified candidates can be overlooked using this approach. A proactive job search strategy utilizes a top down approach to submitting resumes. The focus is on marketing yourself directly to actual decision makers in companies. The decision makers at the VP or Director level understand what their organization needs (yes, this is how you find those hidden jobs) and understand what attributes are needed to do the job. Submitting your resume to a VP or Director instantly sets you apart from the other candidates. Over 40% of jobs filled are never posted!
