According to a report from ABC News, the US Labor Department, unemployment rates fell from 6.7% in March 2014 to 6.3% in April 2014. Nationally, 288,000 jobs were created, making April’s increase in hiring the biggest increase of the last 2 ½ years. Still, in this report, many job seekers are unable to find jobs that they want. More often than not, many are also unaware of resources available to help them land their dream job.
With today’s job market as competitive as ever, getting your resume in the hands of the hiring manager can be the biggest challenge. Timing is key in this process, and having a network of professionals who are familiar with the industry, and companies within it is a must. A professor of mine at Florida State University once told me that applying for a job that had been posted for more than 3 days was a, “waste of time.” Take a look around, most job postings you’d probably be interested in are well over 3 days old. Thus, the process of looking for a job, even when well-qualified, can be a pretty intimidating obstacle. How often do you see a job posting that’s perfect, but it’s two weeks old? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a team of experts on your side?
