12 New Job Hunt Strategies That'll Re-Energize Your Search
“Most job seekers focus on networking with colleagues and people in their industry, but neglect to talk to other people in their lives. This doesn’t mean that you should lead off every conversation with the news that you’re on the hunt, but you can strive to work it into conversation in a natural way. Neighbors, acquaintances from the dog park, people in your rec soccer league—any or all of these contacts may have knowledge or connections that could prove helpful.”

“Over the past 12 months I’ve been asking people how they found their most recent job.
(Here’s the link to the survey.) About 3,000 people have responded so far, most of whom
are in staff or management roles. The results are shown in the graphic.”
Start by reading Harvard Prof Todd Rose’s new book, The End of Average.
Recognize that LinkedIn is a network of 400 million people, not just a database of them.
Demonstrate the ability to do the work, not pass some assessment test, to get the interview.
Be different. If you do what everyone else does you’ll get average results.
