Can you afford to holiday from your job search on a holiday weekend?
Yes, you can. (And should!)
You might vacation, you might have extended family meals and you might have friends hosting house parties. Enjoy them all and keep these tips in mind.
Don’t actively job search on a holiday weekend, unless you live in a country that has a holiday weekend every weekend (I’m looking at you, France, every May).
A recent study said that many people get their best ideas in the shower because:
A lot of dopamine is released in our brains. Triggers like exercising, listening to music, and, yes, taking a warm shower, contribute to increased dopamine flow.
We’re relaxed. When we have a relaxed state of mind, we’re more likely to turn attention inwards, able to make insightful connections.
We’re distracted. Distraction gives our brains a break so our subconscious can work on a problem more creatively.
Those conditions should hold true on holiday weekends too.
Not thinking about your job search could be the best thing for your job search.

The older you get, the more it can happen to you.
One of the questions I get asked most is about overcoming ageism.
More specifically, older job seekers – 45 year olds and up – send in resumes that never get responses or worse, they show up to interviews only to hear that they’re overqualified.
With this happening every day, how are “super-experienced” job seekers supposed to cope? (Besides reading my 40 Tips for Job Seekers Over 40)
And what about sufferers of other forms of illegal recruiting discrimination based on gender, race, religion, disability, ethnicity, sexual preference, political affiliation, etc.?

Everybody is innovative, in that there is no doubt. The difference is just how far people are willing to go with their ideas. Most entrepreneurs are willing to go the whole way. And this may involve their complete financial annihilation or liberation. Either way, they follow their ideas until there is no more road.
For those looking to get a job with a start-up company, there are some serious risks involved.
Risks and potentially lucrative rewards.
At the top of the list is equity. Being one of the guys who came up with the company, you may be entitled to a piece of the pie, depending on how the owners look at their rewards system.

Black and white resumes do it best.
This is a guest post by Todd Porter. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines.
In an age of social media and virtual networking, job hunting is different than it was 50, 40 or even 30 years ago.
In the 60’s and 70’s people typically didn’t change jobs every few years. Individuals would land a job with the anticipation that they would work there until they retired. There were no job sites like Monster.com. There was no Internet where information was easily accessible or e-mail where resumes could be easily submitted.
What hasn’t changed is that the resume is still the number one tool used to land a job. Actually, considering resumes are 500 years old (don’t believe it? Google “Leonardo Da Vinci 1482 resume”) they haven’t changed a lot. Unfortunately, most individuals don’t grasp the intricate parts of this tool and how to use it effectively.
Resumes aren’t black and white.
Well, actually most resumes are black and white (more about that later).
