What is a strategic job search?
Do you use the online job boards for the majority of your search? Have you eversubmitted an application online to a job you really aren't interested in or don'tthink your skills match those the employer is looking for? Is your resume sittingout in a cyber space black hole? Is your job search broad in terms of the positionsyou're applying to? Are you frustrated and not getting offers?
If you answer yes to any of these, you need to create and execute a strategic jobsearch.
