Dr. Phil Follow-up

My recent post from the other day (Dr. Phil – So How’s That Working For You?) generated some good feedback.  Readers surmised their job search efforts were stalled or ineffective, so the question that was raised was ‘So what is not working?’  I went back to some of my archives and found two good articles from Vault that the NBC affiliates ran with a year ago:

5 Reasons Your Job Search May Not Be Working

5 More Reasons Your Job Search May Not Be Working

I think these thoughts provide a good starting point for self-introspection as to one’s approach.  In addition to these common obstacles, be sure to tap the advice of friends, mentors, and one’s network in order to generate more objective feedback about one’s efforts.

I am out next week, so there will be no new postings until the beginning of August.  Talk with you then.
