From submitting illegible résumés to blurting
salary numbers in the first interview to wasting
precious hours applying to the black hole of online
job listings, job seekers make a series of common
and egregious errors.
Here is the accumulated wisdom of three long
time coaches, Sarah Stamboulie, Anita Attridge and
Stop spending all your time answering
ads and sending out blind résumés
This is the number one, catastrophic job search
mistake. People don t get jobs through blind appli-
cations, but rather through networking and people
Stop giving out references
that don't sing your praises
You don t want a reference to damn you with faint
Ask if the person is willing to say you walked on
water. If not, find another reference.
Stop laying out your résumé in a microscopic font
You don t need to fit all of their qualifications onto
a single, illegible page. Either cut down the word
count or let the copy flow onto a second page.

me but at this point in my career, fit is the

Stop getting impatient
with the process
Know that hiring decisions can drag on
for months. Pestering your contacts repeat-
edly by phone and email will not speed up
Stop being honest
about your weaknesses
The rhetoric of job interviews should be
sunshine and light. You can talk about a
challenge you overcame, but emphasize your
accomplishment rather than the problem
that preceded it. (Forbes.com)
You don't need to fit all of their
qualifications onto a single,
