Job Seekers Tool Kit

Q. What are the most important job search tools?

It is important to prepare a full collection of top-notch tools. Call this the "Job Seeker's Tool Kit," and it can be thought of as a portfolio of self-marketing documents.
The idea is to use the right tool, at the right time, with the right person, for the right purpose.

Candidates need to stop relying exclusively on their resume. Other vital tools include;
• The professional biography
• Target company list
• Testimonials sheet
• Professional references list
• Networking agenda
• Accomplishment stories
• Positioning statement

Using all these tools "synergistically" takes some education and practice, but once the approach is mastered, it can generate exceptional results.
