Are you your own worst job search enemy? This is a guest post by Joey Trebif. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines. We all know that job search can be tough and there are so many reasons why your search may take longer than you had hoped. The economy, your industry, your experience and competition are just a few of the factors that will impact your ability to land a new job. But what if it's more complicated than that? What if it's the unthinkable - you are the reason you are not getting any job offers? Maybe you've thought about it, but if you haven't, you should. Think about it - YOU are the single largest factor in getting a new job (or promotion or raise). It's just not enough being the best and the brightest (and it never was). It's about the entire package - how you present yourself, your resume, your cover letter, your network, your interview skills, your experience - and the list goes on.

Just can't wait to get on the road again.” – Willie Nelson It's 6am and the car is waiting outside your house to take you to the airport. Bag and briefcase in hand, you head out to the car for the beginning of yet another tiring business trip. You think back to the beginning of your career when you could not wait for the time when you would get to travel for business. A couple of too many trips later, there is nothing you would like better than to be stuck behind your desk with no travel at all. Grueling as it all is, you are on the road again for better or for worse.
Sometimes the key to success is getting a good start, Joey Trebif of CareerAlley explains.
