Stop Hallucinating You Will Find Job via Online Job Sites

Yes, you may feel delighted to could sit in your apartment or parents’ basement, and do nothing but apply for jobs online while you listen to music and text your friends.  Don’t bet your job search on it! 

Recommendation = Waste – oops!  I mean spend – only 60 minutes/day or less at online job hunting sites.  Hundreds of people apply for each job there.  Your chance of being picked from the crowd, called and interviewed is equal to a snowball’s chance in you-know-where.  Solution:  Phone people who can give you leads to potential employers.  And then call those referrals.  That is a super-effective job hunting strategy.
