Strategies for landing your new job quickly

April 5, 2016

Having just returned from the 201 Career Thought Leaders conference in Denver, I’ve got some great tips to share. Some surprising research from Career Advisory Board ( reveals that an amazing 51% of successful candidates (Millennials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers) land jobs after applying to 5 or less job postings. Here’s how:

  1. They conduct research beforehand
  2. They target their efforts carefully
  3. They make sure they meet most of the required qualifications
  4. They customize their resumes to fit the position
  5. They contact the recruiter or hiring manager for more information
