Since the great economic and jobs collapse of 2008 the topic of job search has taken a front seat in many circles. Pete will share some essential background information with you that departs from much of the standard advice offered during most of these talks. He will explain what is considered heresy or given too little attention by many experts in the Job Search field, i.e. that it may not be anything that you are doing wrong that is contributing to your seemingly interminable job search. In addition, Pete will review observations from his extensive experience about what you can do to continue your search with a much great sense of balance. He will share information about Resumes, Interviews, Networking and Social Media all based upon the way HR folks on the inside are more inclined to view things. It will become crystal clear that there is no just right approach to this topic in these times. You will need to adopt a new paradigm that becomes flexible, opportunistic and allows for experimentation as the rapid pace of change shows that every tried and true job search method needs to be challenged based upon situational awareness.
