If you wanted to succeed, you wouldn’t attempt to hike up a large mountain or drive 500 miles without a map and a plan, maybe a GPS system and other aides. So, when you embark on a job search, you also need a map, tools, and a guide to help you navigate safely and successfully to your new job.
Through her articles (listed in the column on the right), Hannah Morgan, Job-Hunt's Job Search Navigation Expert, will help you navigate the tricky waters of job search in the 21st century.
