Job Hunt Experiences Number One- Points To Remember

So here are some points to remember gleaned from the job hunt so far-

  • You are not old, your experienced.
  • If Centrelink was an E-commerce site, it would go out of business (go to an actual office to get anything done).
  • Out of one hundred job applications only five will reply.
  • Managing your own business means zip to recruiting agencies.
  • Recruiters are usually way less qualified than you and know less about the businesses they are recruiting for than you do.
  • LinkedIn is your best friend.
  • Business friends will mostly evaporate- for employed people, unemployment is a contagious disease.
  • Phone and email are essential- do not let them get cut off.
  • Desperation is very unattractive.
  • Wear a suit to very meeting- they say its casual but that only applies to employees.
  • Supply exceeds demand.
  • Always keep your creditors close, they are your best mates until paid in full.

If anyone needs advice on jobs, closing or running small businesses give me a yell- I can relay my experience to you and hopefully help you out. Like doctors, it never hurts to get a second opinion.
