5 Resumes, 4 Job Offers

I taught a class Crosspointe church last night and covered the process for an effective job search.

If you're limiting your job search to internet and newspaper listings you must know that, out of 100 resumes sent, you'll only receive a job offer between 1 and 8 times.

You can still peruse these places for career opportunities, but an effective job search (understanding your personal tendencies, identifying 30-40 target companies, sending an introduction letter, followed by a cover letter and resume a few days later and then a phone call follow-up) will land you a job about 86 out of 100 times! I like statistics and those are pretty good odds.
