  • Less than 25% of the available jobs are posted on the job boards. Yes, you should use a meta-search, like to comb the want ads; but you should also be networking, contacting companies that you would like to work for, staying in touch with folks on your Linkedin network, etc.

    When you respond to ads on Monster, are you tailoring your cover letter (and resume) to the position and company?

    I do career and job search coaching; I am always happy to help CafeMoms (and Dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy and interview prep.

  • I've sent out literally hundreds of resumes via monster and only received a few calls/responses and not a single interview. Not sure if anyone else has had any luck through them.

  • I haven't had any luck either.
