A job search is not easy. That’s no secret. Like many job seekers, you may find yourself frustrated. You are applying to dozens of jobs and are receiving little or no response to your submissions. Even though a high-volume of submissions can increase the odds of a response, you may actually find much more success with a strategic search.

When preparing for an interview we often place all our focus on predicting what questions the interviewer will ask us. Our efforts are geared towards making sure we say all the right things and give the answers that the potential employer is looking for.
