Job searches can be difficult and intimidating. However, successful searches can dramatically increase the quality of your life.
This site is for today’s job-seeker who is undergoing a business divorce or death. Chances are there have been many changes in the world since he/she last had to look for a job. Today’s employment market is not what it was even 5 years ago.
Corporate situations change quickly. Business relationships can change quickly and unexpectedly. Sometimes, you can read the handwriting on the wall, and know it is time to move on. Other times, without notice a company will lay you off or go out of business. Current statistics show that job longevity is now between three to five years in one company, a far cry from the one-job careers of our parents.
This site will show you everything involved in conducting job searches. This includes:
Job Searches – Step by step advice for a successful search. Learn to utilize all of your potential job sources.
Cover Letters – The initial introduction.
Resume Preparation – This includes free resume examples.
The Interview – Learn to prepare, advice on answering interview questions.

The work involved in finding the right job is not easy, but each step is necessary and important to your success. Overlook nothing. It is often the small, inconsequential items that can trip you up or cause you to lose a perfectly good opportunity. Don’t be lazy and try for shortcuts. They can lead to dead-ends and unnecessary backtracking, and wasted effort and time.
