Job Search Tip - Do not take job posting as being 100% accurate.

One of the biggest mistakes job candidates make is disqualifying themselves because they do not meet EVERY requirement in the job description. While certain requirements truly do matter, many qualifications are more of a "wish list" than a mandatory qualification. Key point - if you can demonstrate that you have the experience and wherewithal to do the job, then apply. #jobsearch #jobqualifications #tip

Job Search Tip - Women

Job Search Tip - Women Seek out a female mentor. Mentors are a great source of inspiration, encouragement, and of course, job leads. Women may especially find that other women in their line of work are eager to share their secrets to success or help a fellow female achieve their career goals. Check out alumni directories or professional networking sites to find the perfect contact. No need to keep just one mentor - having several will give you fresh perspective on the job market and keep you well-rounded and informed.

Job Search Tip - Private on LI

When I write LI profiles, I always turn off the feature "Sharing Profile Edits".  This is done so that your boss, colleagues, etc.  are not aware that your are updating your profile (this sends an unintended signal that you are looking for a new position). #jobsearch #tip #writing

Job Search Tip - Custom LinkedIn URL

This option is cleaner than a URL string of random letters and numbers, and URLs can be customized to include your first and last name.  A customized URL also shows that you are more detailed / thorough in your approach than others and also makes it easier for recruiters / hiring managers to handle their due diligence via Google and other engines #linkedin #jobsearch #linkedinurl #duediligence
