What wonders me that actually what you are writing here about are absolute basics and still - people make the same mistake over and over again...! I remember when I was a student we had a class on "How to apply for a job successfully" -I am certain most of us ready books and advice sections in news papers and job forums and still... we just don't learn!

Yes, I agree, there are basic things. I think people get frustrated at having to fill out so many applications because very employer has a different one. But that's the deal when you are looking!

And then sometimes I get the feeling they are not really trying - like they are applying for jobs so they can check off the box on their unemployment comp form and get their unemployment check.

And then some REALLY want the job but are too lazy to go the extra mile. They call me three times and write emails but when I look at their application - it is incomplete.

But as I said, I try to understand the stress that people are under when they are looking for work. Stress can make even the most level-headed of us do strange things.

I believe people nowadays are a panicking and looking for any job just to have one, specially now that it is so difficult to look for a job. Applying for a job that they do not want in the first place is one serious matter. They lask the dedication I suppose.

Getting all the pieces to the puzzle is not easy but if you can tackle one piece at time you may get to your goal...finding a job. Start with a professional resume and cover lettter. Then think out of the box in regards to the way you search for a job and something has to give.

Great article. Another thing that I recommend is to follow up on your interview. Call (and leave a message if nobody answers) the person that interviewed you and tell him you enjoyed the interview and that you're certain you'll be a valuable asset to the company.

There's nothing wrong with showing confidence with a touch of boldness!
