Get-rich-quick offers and promises of lots of money for very little work should immediately put your guard up. If you haven’t already, familiarize yourself with what a standard job posting looks like.

Legitimate jobs are looking for specific skill sets and job requirements, and do not over-promise. Too many “$$$$” or “!!!!!” should forewarn you it’s not likely a trustworthy opportunity. As you pursue your dream of a “shoes optional” position, keep an eye out for these sneaky tactics.

Using Social Media to Find a Job: Five Personal Branding Best Practices

After being laid off in February 2011, I had to devise a strategy to differentiate myself in a job market crowded with talented and creative individuals. I started by leveraging the power and reach of social media.

Coming from a predominantly traditional marketing background, I was in the midst of rebranding myself as a social media marketer. I put a major emphasis on producing and curating content that demonstrated my knowledge and understanding of the industry, while demonstrating social media savviness.

I built the website HireDaveCutler.com, featuring a video and PowerPoint resume, writing samples, and references, to provide a more holistic view of myself than a traditional resume would provide. I created a Foursquare venue promoting my search and an app that aggregated my various content channels.

Leverage Social Media in the Job Market

Graduation is looming, and you still have zero job prospects.

Regardless of your work history, it is possible to build your resume and begin building your network. Often, we think of our professors or employers as only as potential references. Before social media, just having good references was sufficient. They put in a good word for you when the time came, and you kept them on retainer until you needed them again, maybe keeping in touch once a year to keep the ties relevant.

6 Ways to Get a Tech Job Without a Tech Degree

Jobs in tech are stronger than ever. In 2011, Amazon hired 22,500 people, bringing its workforce up to 56,200, and Google hired 8,000 people — more than ever in a single year. The technology sector is booming, and while not all of these jobs require an engineering degree, getting a gig can be harder than getting into an Ivy League school. Competition between businesses is too steep for firms to hire those who aren’t qualified, and demand for these positions is greater than the skills that exist in the marketplace.

10 Must Have Job Interview Skills

Interviews can be incredibly stressful, and hunting for a job is never fun. So when you are lucky enough to secure an interview, you need to have the skills and confidence necessary to land the job you want. Here are the top ten most important interview skills that will help you impress employers and outshine the competition.

1. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare

Ok, so this first one isn’t exactly a ‘skill’ per se, but rather a strategy for honing your skills, polishing your image, and the foundation upon which your entire presentation will be based– because that is exactly how you should think of an interview: as a presentation you are giving. If you walk into an interview with the attitude that you are requesting a job or asking the employer to do you a favor, your interviewer will notice your diffidence. But if you think of the interview as an opportunity to prove to them what you yourself already know– that you are qualified and will make a great employee– then they will perceive you as confident and able.
