Re: [vox] Best Way to Job Hunt?



In my case, I activly responded to ads. Out of a a
dozen or so resumes, I got a part time position. I
picked up some contract work through a friend. You
might have to pound the doors of a few agnecies as
well.

I found pitching myself differently (skilled computer
tech vs. sys / net admin) helped. In some companies
the pardigm is shifting. HR wants to see a variety of
skills rather than a specialist. You might also
consider government positions. They may not pay as
much, but the state isn't doing layoffs.

Some links you might follow.
