People tell you all manner of false information in a job search, including "resumes are dead," "you only need a one page resume," "LinkedIn is just like Facebook," "a cover letter isn't important," and "if you apply to enough jobs online through job boards you will get a job." Listen to real experts in a job search, not friend, family and acquaintance opinions. While the aforementioned are well-meaning, they will make your job search longer, more frustrating, and potentially unsuccessful. Get the facts from an experienced career professional if you have questions. To your job search success!
