Average Job Search Takes Over 6 Months!

International Business Times:
The length of the average search is a good reason not to be average. The typical job search is full of inefficiencies. One example: Do NOT expect your friends or contacts to find you a job. Most people waste weeks or months waiting for their friends to present them with opportunities, but the truth is most people can help you only when you help them do so. Spending a lot of time asking, "Do you know of any openings?" is not nearly as effective as making a target list of companies and asking your contacts if they know anyone in those companies.
 With this in mind I have written an expanded explanation on the true cost of a resume over on the services page.
