  • Less than half of all jobs are listed on the job boards; you need to network. You should have a Linkedin profile and join networking groups. You should also use a mega-search, like Indeed or Simply Hired. You need a great resume (or 2 or 3), and your cover letters should tell a hiring manager why you are the best candidate.
    I do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly –Robin
