It Isn’t Effective – Less than 2% of jobs are found on job boards. There are better ways of searching.
It Doesn’t Differentiate you from the Stampeding Herd – If you pound job boards you become one of the ‘herd’.
Posting your resume online Doesn’t allow you Edit it for Specific Job Requirements – Editing for the needs of each opportunity differentiates you.
It Doesn’t help you Identify Hidden Jobs – You will never learn about them if you don’t talk to the right people.
It Doesn’t Build your Network – Hiring managers are a valuable add to your network.
It Consumes Time You Should Be Spending on Other Tactics – Like developing interviewing and salary negotiation skills, networking, and prospecting for hiring managers.
It usually doesn’t work! – Again, there are better ways of searching.
