Just posted on my Resume Rehab blog about a woman who is looking for a job using a t-shirt with her resume printed on it. Too bad when I tried to look for her online to find out more, she didn't have a web site, online resume, Linked In, blog, Facebook page... nothing. Given the fact that the Internet has taken over the world of marketing (and most of the world, in general) is it possible for a successful marketer to have a virtually non-existent web presence? Doesn't seem like a very effective personal marketing plan to me.
As we slowly defrost into Springtime, my friends are in a mad panic to either figure out what they want to do with their lives... or make a mad dash for grad school, so it looks like they know what they're doing. With that being said, resumes, job searches, networking and all things "real world" are on my mind. Since it's been less than I year since I embarked upon my own grown-up job hunt, a few tips are fresh in my memory: 1. Have It Your Resume 2. Network It Out 3. Follow Up Yours 4. Say Thank You Like You Mean It 5. Rinse and Repeat
