Abstract For many people, the only thing harder than being out of a job is searching for one. The difficulties associated with finding employment can wear down even the most resilient jobseekers. Applying for dozens of jobs each week and getting few or no replies can slowly erode jobseekers self-esteem. And this loss of confidence can prove detrimental to those trying to market their skills to would-be employers. Jobseekers can avoid many of the mistakes that keep them from winning a job. They can learn how to choose the best channels for applying, why they shouldnt rely on online resources exclusively, and how to use their contacts effectively. By demystifying the job search process, informed jobseekers improve their chances for successprovided theyre willing to put in the hard work, time, and patience required. This article gives jobseekers guidelines for taking control of their employment search.
