Learn to recognize the moment when you can credibly claim that you are an expert.
Wondering how this is relevant to job seekers? Read on.
When I opened JobMob in December 2006 and officially launched it with a press release a few months later, I wasn’t a job search expert. Not even close.
It wasn’t always that way.
When I opened JobMob in December 2006 and officially launched it with a press release a few months later, I wasn’t a job search expert at all.
The idea for the site came to me during the summer of 2006 when I was living in France but looking for a job in Israel. The local job market was humming along nicely at that point but when networking with other job seekers, I realized that I was still having more success than most.
Having begun following blogs a few months earlier, I noticed that there were no blogs based in Israel about job search and I thought a blog sharing my own job search experiences would be a perfect way to experiment with blogging while also being the “first to market”. And so, JobMob was born.
At that point, I still wasn’t a job search expert yet. Continue reading >> 7 Clear Signs You Should Call Yourself An Expert
Have you been to a job fair recently? You probably should have.
A waste of time?
In 2002, I was on the job search in Israel a few months after leaving my job at Amazon.com in France.
I had just started looking for a programming-related job in e-commerce when I heard about a large upcoming tech job fair in the Tel Aviv area. I was a bit skeptical about going but I put it on my calendar.
Living in Jerusalem at the time, I later had to commute for over 90 minutes just to get to the fair.
Once registered and inside, I was handed a large bag of industry magazines and a map of the convention space, which I used to see if there were any interesting companies to apply to.
Armed with my resume, I spent the next 30-40 minutes walking around… Continue reading >> 25 Reasons Job Fairs Are Not a Waste of Time
People & Computers’ latest edition of its annual hitech (IT) job fair is next week.
This job fair usually takes place in the summer like this one last July, so either they bumped it up this year or they’ll be another one in 6 months (although I hope you won’t care about it).
If you know anyone else looking for a job in Israel in one of the below industries, please share this article with them. Continue reading >> Techeads Israeli Hitech Job Fair on March 6th 2012
Because how you follow up after an interview is more important than you think.
This is a guest post by Carolyn K. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines.
You wouldn’t take a pretty girl on one date and expect her to do all the work of getting in touch with you for a second date, would you? I don’t care how charming you are. That’s a recipe for a lonely night.
That same line of thinking applies to job hunting. If you walked out the door of your job interview and thought that was the end of it, think again.
The follow-up is an oft-misunderstood art form. Too often a job is lost because a very well-qualified applicant displays no more interest in the job as soon as the door to the HR office closes behind them.
If you’re looking to master the art of the follow-up, here are a few tips. Continue reading >> Follow-up or Follow Up? Improve Your Post-Interview Technique
