Here are three simple job hunting tips for you to begin your week!
- Want to know what's happening in the job market? It's critical to know what's going on out there from an employer's point of view. Check out the LinkedIn US Recruiting Trends Report. You can sign up to receive this 37 page report published by the friendly folks over there at LinkedIn. Among the highlights - the job market is heating up, and more companies are using social media to find talent. Be ready!
- Turn off your cell phone before you start your interview. Did I really need to remind you? If you've chosen to interview, any calls can wait.
- Smile during the interview. Even by phone, it changes the tone of your voice. And it makes you more likeable. Can't hurt, can it?
