In spring cleaning mode?
Polish your résumé and touch-up your network!

by Joan Lloyd

Does your job need some spring cleaning? Are you feeling bored, frustrated or stressed? Does the change of season make you restless -- itching to clean up the garden, clean out a closet or organize your workspace? Why not channel some spring energy into sprucing up your career?


Researching Before You Relocate

Whether you are considering a job offer or planning to land a position in a new locale, it pays to do your homework before you take the leap. Conditions can be very different from what you are accustomed to and once you have accepted all the terms of an offer, it’s too late to back out. Taking the time to thoroughly research before you relocate will save you time, money and headaches and all systems will be set to go for you to succeed in your new position. Here are some guidelines to make your transition as smooth as possible.


Your Perfect Job
by Robert Bittner

The best career discovery books work as touchstones to ignite something within readers. Your Perfect Job accomplishes this by showing and telling career seekers valuable lessons about figuring out where they want to go. Bittner cites the scene in the movie Citizen Kane with the line “It isn’t hard to make a lot of money if all you want is to make a lot of money.” The lesson this shows is that no matter what it is you desire, you have to sacrifice to reach your goal. Using interviews with real life people caught in a career crisis and sharing his personal journey makes this book worthwhile for anyone facing career choices.


Q. I've been trying to find a job for several months now. I keep checking on Monster and on, and I keep submitting my resume, but nobody ever contacts me back. Help!

A. We sympathize. We've all been there, and nothing is more frustrating than a job search -- particularly when you don't seem to be getting any traction. Even though unemployment is steadily dropping, hiring managers are still getting hundreds of applications for every available job, so they're looking at your resume to figure out how quickly they can remove you from consideration. We're going to restate that because it's critical for you to understand it: resumes are designed to prevent you from getting a job.
