1. Network, Network, Network!!! Up to 80% of jobs are found through networking. In addition to face-to-face networking (the most powerful) be sure to add social media networking to your list. 2.

by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
Struggling to find a job in your industry? Don’t discount the benefit of volunteering.

If the ‘resume’ of Coca Cola just talked about a carbonated soft drink in general terms, and didn’t re...
