What if I told you you’re going about this job search task all wrong? You should create a job, not hunt for a job. Instead of doing the hunting, you should become the hunted.
Job search strategies typically focus on surveying job boards, meeting with recruiters, or fine-tuning your resume within an inch of its life. When the realization finally clicks that you’re doing exactly the same thing as every other job seeker, that light bulb moment can lead to a dramatic shift in your career development thinking.
Are you struggling to find a job or switch careers? Most job seekers don’t realize that their job-hunting method, not their profile, determines their success.

What you’ll discover is that not all job-hunting methods are created equally. Knowing which ones perform the best, will help you avoid wasting your time and energy.
