Whether you’re unhappy in your current role or you’re unemployed looking for a new position, we want to be a resource for advice to help you in your job search. So what were our top tips from 2017? Before we begin with new content in 2018, let’s take a look back at the top 5 posts last year.

Red flags in your job search.

There may be ample opportunity to determine a company isn’t a good fit for you before you even start. Look for these warning signs may help you make the right decision. We suggest looking at their overall communication, attitude, and reputation. Also look for any personality conflicts, a lack of clarity in the job description, and inconsistent policies.

The real truth about job searching.

We also wanted to give job seekers a sort of behind the scenes look at the truth about looking for a job. What are some of the biggest misconceptions and myths? We wanted to share why you shouldn’t apply to everything, how job hopping really affects your chances, how to find hidden opportunities, and how to follow up after applying.

How to include temp work on your resume.

If you’ve done temporary work between full-time jobs, how do you effectively put that on your resume? Since the situation is so common, we wanted to provide some insider information on the process. You can show the consistency in your work experience, new skills you learned, your overall determination, and even use the agency as a reference for your continued search.

Questions for employers that set you apart.

If you really want to make a good impression in the interviewing process, there are some questions that would set you apart from your competition. They demonstrate your interest in the job and your thoughtfulness for making a decision. Ask questions about their process for determining success, how they think the company can be improved, and why they might not choose to hire you. We’ve also offered insight as to why these questions and how to position them.

How to apply when you’re not qualified.

Of course, there may be times when you see a job ad that looks great but you’re missing some of the experience they’re looking for. What do you do? We believe there are ways to position yourself as the right candidate even if you don’t check all the boxes. In this post, we talk about how to read the job description to understand the top requirements, how to sell the skills you do have, and avoid focusing on the things you don’t bring to the table.
