  The Simple $6 Job Search
by Kevin Donlin - Jun, 2010
As a rule, simple is good. The iPad interface, Google, popsicles -- they’re all simple things that achieve great results. Applied to your job search, simplicity can achieve great results, too. Example: What if you identified the people you wanted to work for, then advertised directly to them, asking for an interview? Do you think something that simple might get you a job? Well, it worked for one man, Alec Browns...
  Zero to Hired in 30 Days with Guerrilla Networking
by Kevin Donlin - May, 2010
If you’re in the job market today, you know that the shortest route to employment is often...non-existent. You email your resume in response to a job posting. Then wait. Email to follow up. Wait. Get a phone interview. Wait to hear back from the employer. Etc. What a long, strange trip it can be -- if you do what everyone else is doing. But what if you blaze your own trail and make your own rules? That’s what “guer...

Read on to learn four ways you can get hired faster by taking the “Irish” approach......
  Stop Being Creative in Your Job Search
by Kevin Donlin - May, 2010
“Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.” That’s according to economist and Harvard professor, Theodore Levitt. And that’s absolutely correct. Especially in job hunting, where too many people think too much and do too little. Want proof? According to surveys cited by David Wessel in The Wall Street Journal, “The unemployed in the United States spend 40 minutes a day looking for work...
  Give Thanks, Get Hired
by Kevin Donlin - May, 2010
One day in September 1996, I was talking to Steve, my manager. We had just interviewed a woman for a writing job. Discussing how we ourselves had been hired, I mentioned that I had mailed a thank-you note to the manager who interviewed me. “So did I,” replied Steve. And we were both hired. Wasn’t that a coincidence? The next day, we each received a thank-you note in the mail from Leitha, the woman we interviewed. We hire...
  Twitter Job-Search Success Story
by Kevin Donlin - Apr, 2010
If you’ve been on the Internet for longer than 30 minutes, you’ve likely heard of It’s the “micro-blogging” web site that lets you share information with people in your network using short updates of 140 characters or less, called “tweets.” It’s free to join and to use. Can it help you find a job? Yes. Can it also be a huge waste of time in your job search? Yes. So, let’s look at a Twitter job-search s...
  Linkedin Job-Search Tips
by Kevin Donlin - Apr, 2010
LinkedIn has been called “Facebook for grownups” and “the world’s biggest networking group.” It’s both of those -- and more. Used correctly, LinkedIn can be one of the most valuable weapons in your job-search arsenal. To get the latest and best tips, I interviewed Rob Mendez, an expert on LinkedIn and other social media, who helps job hunters via his web site. Here’s what we talked about.....
  How to Target Hiring Managers and Crack the Hidden Job Market
by Kevin Donlin - Apr, 2010
Fact: The advertised job market is literally the tip of the iceberg. Fully 70-80% of jobs go unadvertised by employers, who fear being deluged by hundreds of resumes from applicants, most of whom won’t be qualified. With that in mind, it makes sense to spend about 80% of your time cracking this “hidden” market of unadvertised jobs. And a good way to do it is to contact hiring managers at companies you want to work for....

Whether you’re a new college grad or a seasoned executive, if you’re hitting the pavement in search of work this spring, here’s good news...
