10 Avoidable Mistakes That Job Seekers Commonly Make
Every day, thousands of people look for jobs, and many of these people make at least one – if not a few – missteps in the process. For example, spelling errors in their written communication, or making negative comments about a former employer. Why does this matter? Because these simple “mistakes” can have a strong impact on whether you get the job you’re pursuing! The good news is that most errors can be avoided – often by paying attention to the small details. Learn about 10 of the most common mistakes that job seekers make, so you can sidestep some of these pitfalls and present yourself as a credible candidate.
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
