job search notes: proper tools

"When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." Abraham Maslow is created with this phrase.

In autumn, apples are fresh and ready for baking. I used to core them with a small knife. It worked but it was something to be careful with. When out shopping recently, I found an apple corer. Now, with the proper tool in hand, the job of preparing apples for baking was easier.



The importance of a tool kit can not be overstated.

What is in your job search tool kit?
  • Do you have a resume, a cover letter, maybe a marketing plan? 
  • Do you have a network of connections?
  • Do you have an updated and complete profile in LinkedIn?

Do you have tips and tricks that you have picked up along the way? Share them at the LaidOff Camp coming on November 7th.
Gain confidence in sharing what you know. Learn something new. Network with others.

And leave the event with more confidence, more knowledge, and a greater network behind you to take your next step in the job search!
