Another big year.
Read all the way through, you don’t want to miss the special announcement…
I honestly never thought it would last this long.
When JobMob launched on March 21st, 2007, I never thought it would last this long.
Back then, I wanted to learn about blogging while I was looking for a job, so it wasn’t hard to think of blogging about my job search.
I suppose the idea would have been to stop once I found a job, or when I didn’t feel there was more to learn – or like most people who start blogging – when I’d simply had enough and couldn’t find the time or effort to blog anymore.
But that won’t be happening anytime soon.
There are still millions of people who are unnecessarily suffering through job searches, and millions more who aren’t getting all (or even most) of the benefits of personal branding, so my work is cut out for me.
And I’m still having too much fun to stop.

Whether you’re new to JobMob or you’ve been here for a while, here’s a quick look back at the best of this past year.
Top 10 Most Popular New JobMob Articles of 2012
These articles were all blogged during 2012. The list is ranked according to pageviews, in ascending order i.e. 1) is the article that had the most views.
Funny coincidence- half the list was contributed by guest bloggers and half were blogged by me. And if that isn’t random enough, the guest bloggers contributed 5) – 10), while mine are 1) – 5).

800,000 pageviews later, the 6th Annual JobMob Guest Blogging Contest is over and the prizes are ready to be won.
Highs and lows of this year’s contest
Behind the scenes, this was a surprisingly intriguing contest. More on that in a second.
There were many highs this year.
* Over 400,000 people visited JobMob during the contest, generating over 800,000 pageviews
* 25 articles were submitted from entrants across the USA, Canada, UK, Israel, and the Philippines
* It was the first time an entrant used an openly-recognized pseudonym (that would be Recruiting Animal)
* It was the first time that a sponsor also participated as entrant (that would also be Recruiting Animal)
* The first grand prize winner broke our single-contest traffic record, breaking 2000 unique visitors for the first time
Unfortunately, there were too many lows this year. That’s what happens when prize values get so high, I suppose.

Ever wonder why companies repost jobs over and over?
This is a guest post by Lavie Margolin. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines.
Have you ever conducted an internet job search and noticed a job that is the perfect fit for you?
Then when you applied, you got no response?
Was it frustrating to see the same job, that you are supremely qualified for, posted in various online outlets for months and months?
Why is this happening?
There are several reasons and it may have nothing to do with how qualified the applicants are.

This poll was inspired by my own first resume.
I remember trying to write my first resume as a university student.
I was clueless.
But I knew it.
This was in 1994, and although the Internet existed and I had already created my first website, there was no easy way to look for resume inspiration on the Web back then. So I asked around, and did find some books in the McGill University library.
One section that seemed important to have, besides Experience and Education, was an Objective. What was my Objective? It seemed so obvious but I didn’t really have an impressive answer at the time, especially if I was giving my resume to company rep.s at a job fair or career fair without a specific position in mind.
