  • Take Advantage of Online Resources: With so much information at your disposal, all you need is motivation to sleuth, a reason to get in touch and the ability to write an email the person will actually read.
  • Grow Your Network: People you know but aren't close to...can actually be more helpful than your close friends and contacts when it comes to looking for a new job, because they're more likely to hear about opportunities you don't yet know about.
  • Let Your Personality Shine: Companies want workers who are a good cultural fit...Don't be afraid to show your personality; it can only help you.
