Test Your Job Search Knowledge

It’s critical that you know the “rules of the game” when it comes to your Job Search Strategy. Test your knowledge by answering “True” or “False” to the following questions.

  1. There is a huge “hidden market” which you have the power to reveal.  This “hidden market” may be your best target.  T or F ?
  2. Linked In may be much more effective than Job Boards for finding your next job. T or F ?
  3. Mass mailing your resume to potential employers is still the best way to find a job.  T or F ?
  4. It’s best to keep your resume general vs. specific, thus casting a wide net. T or F ?
  5. Asking questions during the interview is a red flag that you may lack confidence. T or F ?
  6. The dreaded salary requirement question is best answered by ” I’m open”.   T or F ?
  7. For job seekers new to the scene, avoid part time positions or volunteer work.  T or F ?
  8. Companies generally use one standard method to interview candidates. T or F ?
  9. For new grads, without a work history, friends and family make the best references. T or F ?
  10. Best resumes focus on a steady progression of more responsible jobs. T or F ?

[How did you do?  You may be surprised but only questions 1 and 2 are true. The others are false.]
