Looking for a job? Got a game plan? Chances are, you’ve received lots of advice (wanted, or not) on how to make the most of your job search. But are those well-meaning words of wisdom out of date?
There are the basics, of course — getting your resume together, answering job ads, preparing for the phone interview, meeting your potential employer in person. And yet: at every step, it can all go so wrong.
That’s where Marketplace Weekend‘s regular advice column on the world of work can help. This week, Ask a Manager’s Alison Green is answering your questions on job search conventions: How to make the most of technology, why delivering a resume in person may not be the best thing for you, and the dos and don’ts of the job fair.
So, send us your questions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org — you can also send your voice memos messages here, too. You can leave a comment on Facebook or Twitter, or call the Weekend voicemail 1-800-648-5114 and one of the team will call you back.
