The gurus speak

I often piggyback on Dale Dauten and J.T. O'Donnell about job hunting--which sort of reminds me that this site is getting repetitive--job hunting, house buying, house selling, govt jobs--I am looping.

Should I drop this--we seem to have no hope of anything getting better economy-wise. In fact, the contrary. What to do, what to do--any ideas?

Anyhow, for now, Dauten and O'Donnell say the old adage that you are stable if you stay in a job 20 years has been turned on its head--you need to say why you never left and much as why you did.

If you are competing with an inside candidate--that person may blow the interview. So do your best!

If invited to talk about your manager--make a list, then burn it!

If turned down, stay in touch.

And--if you haven't--get a professional email address. No words like "hot" or "vixen."

See? No fun!
