How do you job search while you are still employed?

does that limit you to word of mouth and advertised positions where you can send out your resume?

What about cold calls? How do I make them as discreet as possible? Call during break time?

Any more tips? Thanks.

Have a job interview and bringing my resume, should I put a cover letter on it?

Have a job interview with Michelin (Manufacturing) and have done their testing and applications thought unemployment office, and want to bring my resume but not sure how i should word the cover letter if at all. As far as I know this is NOT the decision maker so should I word it as if I am introducing myself for the first time?

Could a full year gap in my resume hurt my chances to find a good job?

I was working for a company for 5 years then I was let go for a policy violation.
Then another company hired me a year later, the company I was working
for closed down the division I was working at. So I only worked for them for 8
months. Will it be tough to find a job with a full year without a job on my resume.

Do you have to report a job right away when collection Unemployment?

Are you able to collect one more check after finding a job while collecting unemployment since you have to wait another two to three weeks to get paid from the job? when should you report your job or should you just stop calling in for your check?

Do i have to write my current job always on top of my resume ?

My current job doesn’t pay well and it has no relation to what I want to do with my career.
Is it ok to put my previous job on Top and my current job on bottom?

Or do you think it’ll be a risk since they will think I am laid off for years now?
and don’t even bother to look down..??
Since i heard that the max time a recruiter looks at your resume is about 6-7 seconds?

Has anyone ever created a resume to fit a job they wanted?

I recently graduated from college where I learned the basics of what I need to be an effective accountant. Unfortunately, it seems that since I have no experience, I can’t get a job in that field. I am seriously considering modifying my resume to show more experience in the accounting field. Has anyone ever done this? And what are the odds of getting caught? When you get a new job, you are usually trained their way, regardless of past jobs, right?

Need help with CV(Curriculum Vitae)!?

I’ve applied to countless jobs and never gotten to the interview process. I am a student and really need a job, but no one will hire me!

I think it may be because of my CV layout. I can’t post my current layout on here, due to obvious reasons.

Could someone who has been a successful job applicant tell me how their CV is laid out?

College say to write a paragraph about yourself, others say to keep it short and snappy, others say not to bother. I just don’t…


Looking for job/career advice?

I’m looking for some help on where to go for my career so I’ll try to provide as much info as possible for anyone to help. I’m 30 years old with a wife and baby, so I have all of those normal expenses to take care of. I’ve worked in customer service representative jobs (a supervisor for 2 of them) for the last 8 years but never really went anywhere more. I have a Associates degree in Business but nothing really significant to work with. I’m looking for a career…


Unemployment denied because quit a job 3 months ago?

I was recently laid off from my job, i applied for unemployment, the unemployment office is telling me that because i was fired from a job 3 months ago (couldn’t handle both jobs i had, and did poorly on the job i was fired from) that i may be denied unemployment.
What can i do? Obviously if i had known i would be laid off from the current job, i would have never lost the other one.

Personal Investing Experience on Job Resume?

Can you add personal investing experience, such as trading equities and options, to your job resume? Not as work experience, but in a skills section?
