It’s time for a round of applause for job seekers who have found success and some encouragement for those who are still on the hunt.
The situation out there is still bleak (though it’s significantly better than it was at the beginning of the year) and we haven’t declared that we’re out of the recession nor are we sure when we will be. It’s still a little miserable out there.
But sometimes you gotta look past that and focus on the good.
This post is dedicated to a friend of mine and reader who got a job offer and graciously accepted. How did he do it? He went to a job fair, he made a connection with a recruiter, he listened to what that recruiter told him and made changes to his materials, he followed up appropriately, he struck a chord with his interviewers – and the rest is history.
So congrats to him on getting the job and congratulations to the employer on getting an outstanding employee. All around good news!
