You will stunt the progress of your job search if you do any of the following:
Don’t bother to write a cover letter.
Create a single resume that you believe will fit all jobs.
Riddle your resume or cover letter with spelling or grammar errors.
Broadcast your resume far and wide.
Avoid participating in LinkedIn groups and discussions.
Make sure your LinkedIn profile is incomplete, forget about having a good, smiling headshot of yourself (only you) and make it difficult for people to contact you.
And if you win an interview anyway, show up late, chew gum, forget about good hygiene, arrive reeking of tobacco or alcohol, don’t make good eye contact, provide long-winded answers to questions, bad mouth a previous boss or company and make some bigoted remark.
Be creative and think of many other things you can do to extend your job search. You can do it.
Of course if you really do want a new job you could choose to do the opposite of all of these things.Best wishes for an effective search!
