NEW YORK, NY (January 21, 2009) - TheLadders.com, the world’s leading online platform for the $100K+ job market, announced today the availability of an online guide to help $100K+ job seekers successfully manage their job searches. Bringing together the best advice from successful job seekers, career coaches and recruiters, the online guide offers tips on personal branding, resume writing and working with recruiters—as well as surprising predictions from experts on why 2009 may offer pent-up opportunities for savvy job seekers. The online “refresher course” is available at $100K+ Job Hunt Guide.
“The job search has changed over the years, and job seekers must stay up-to-date with best practices to stay competitive,” said Matthew Rothenberg, editor-in-chief for TheLadders.com. “There are new skills, strategies and insights to be gained at any stage in your career—and TheLadders.com community and contributors are among the country’s best sources for this information.”
The $100K+ Job Hunt Guide presents tips and tactics from best practices of the job search. Highlights include:
1. Decoding Job Listings - Listed job requirements are your key to the problems the company is trying to solve—sell yourself as the answer to those problems.
2. The Age Game - Worried about your age? It’s perfectly fair to use a resume that only lists dates for the past 10 or 15 years rather than for every job you’ve ever had.
3. Be Your Own Brand - Create your own brand and stick to it. “Aiming for sales or product development in a tech company? Don’t walk in carrying an old-fashioned, 10-pound day planner.”
4. Networking Rules of Engagement - When networking, reciprocate first and build an army of friends willing to help you when you need it.
Rothenberg, veteran business writer Kevin Fogarty and the editorial team at TheLadders.com bring members the best advice on making the $100K+ job search effective and successful.
