Job search tales: it's all about networking

In this episode of "Anatomy of a Job Search", Mark Warren discusses how the job market has undergone massive changes in the last year, and that many of the old strategies for finding employment are no longer very effective. Building networks at targeted companies should be the top priority of job seekers, but they also need to continue building relationships with recruiters and applying to job postings (even though these efforts don't yield a lot of results).

Mark has coached many hundreds of candidates on the intricacies of the job search in his 30 year career as a coach and teacher. His deep experience in recruiting and career coaching offer a rich vein of knowledge for job seekers.

You can read more about Mark's suggestions on his blog.
