Good day! I am a sales representative who has several years of proven sales success. I was recently laid off and I've been unemployed for the past 5 months. I've applied to countless sales jobs online and I am struggling. I can't seem to get feedback for opportunities that I know I am qualified for. I've networked with colleagues and reached out to my personal contacts, but even they are not much help. I am struggling and feel helpless. How can I conduct a better job search? Do you have any advice?

Dear Recruiter, I am a sales representative who is currently employed. I have been with my organization for a few years and, for the most part successfully hit my goals and quotas.

However, I've recently become curious about other possible job opportunities and I feel an urge to selectively seek for a new sales position. What is the best way to approach a selective job search?

Dear Mr. Jones, I am writing to thankyou for taking time out of your busy shedule to meet with me.

Why The Hiring Manager Passed on Your Candidacy - Top 10 Reasons Why You Didn't Get The Job When a potential employer called you to schedule a job interview, you didn't answer the phone, which normally is not an issue. As you would expect the potential employer decided to leave you a message. However, after listening to your voice mail greeting which was solely comprised of Cypress Hill chanting the chorus "Insane in the membrane.....Insane in the brain!" a few times, she determined that it was quite possible that you actually were not the candidate she was seeking to fill the position and promptly hung-up the phone.

5 Job Search Tips for Recent College Grads

06.09.10   |   Interview Advice   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

As a recent college grad, I know firsthand how difficult the transition into the "real world" can be. Last year, I entered a world where it was no longer acceptable to take an afternoon nap, wear pajamas in the middle of the day, or take a "personal day" because you had a little too much fun the night before. The world that I had become accustomed to disappeared, and I was left with a long list of expectations and responsibilities. All of a sudden, I was supposed to have a great career, an apartment, and food on the table. Like so many recent college grads, I felt unprepared, scared, and unsure of how I was going to survive in the "real world."

Why Join LinkedIn?

02.17.10   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

Recently I sat with a great candidate to discuss his job search. We had talked about the different resources he could utilize to conduct an effective search and to my surprise I found that my candidate was not a member of LinkedIn. I suggested how he could maximize his search by creating a LinkedIn account. I was amazed to find resistance and a strong opinion to not join one of the world's largest, most powerful networking sites. Then I realized that he was averse to joining LinkedIn due to the fact that he had a misunderstanding of what LinkedIn is. He was under the impression that it was just another social site like Facebook. I spoke with him in depth about why he should join LinkedIn and shared with him how I utilize the site as a recruiter. It is one of the sites I use on a daily basis to find candidates and prospects and I think anyone who is not utilizing LinkedIn is doing themselves a major disservice.
