    Great round up list of job search articles, especially the eight different categories add good value to the list. I’ve been intrigued by the following 3 articles:

    – How to get yourself headhunted in 2017, no it’s not really the same as in 2010 (Karalyn Brown – under the Recruiters category): this is a very impressive article that is rich in details and presents useful advice in a simple and clear way.

    – 29 Biggest LinkedIn Mistakes Most Job Seekers Make (Meg Guiseppi – under the Social Media and Personal Branding category): the article has good tips and valuable reminders about utilizing LinkedIn effectively.

    – How to Answer Impossible Interview Questions, Part 1 (Thea Kelley – under the Job Interviews category): when faced with an interview question that you can’t answer or can’t immediately answer – this article offers guidance on getting unstuck and navigating successfully through a particularly tough question.

    I believe the blog at TheBigGameHunter.us is incredibly comprehensive with thousands of videos, podcasts and articles about all aspects of job search. Thanks for all you do for job hunters
